5. Magnetic Doorways


You can exit at either end of any curtain panel whether it is sealed to a wall, support column or to another curtain panel. When two curtain panels come together to form a doorway they overlap by 1 inch or the width of the binding. We have a special method for sealing panel-to-panel doorways using fiberglass rods and very powerful neodymium magnets.

Powerful Neodymium Magnets & Fiberglass Rods

These are NOT ordinary refrigerator magnets. Our rare-earth magnets are freakishly strong and seal doorways. You MUST ORDER enough magnets to space them every 12-18 inches depending upon your wind conditions. Read Warning! Fiberglass rods insert vertically up into the side bindings to distribute the load on the magnets and complete the seal between magnets.


Magnet Warning!

For the most part these magnets are embedded in the side binding of the curtain and pose little risk, but we want you and yours safe!

Small Children

If a small child decided to eat a magnet, it would likely pass. However, if the child decided it was tasty enough to eat another, the magnets could pinch the intestines which is VERY dangerous and would require surgery.

Pace Makers

These magnets, should not be used in close proximity to a pace maker as they could potentially interfere with the pace maker. We recommend that you speak with your doctor. Read more. If this is of concern to you, call us and we will substitute a zipper door that is more difficult to use but non-magnetic.
