History has shown that maintenance-free MAGIGLIDE will last the entire life of a building, which is why more than half of the large-scale housing developments in NYC and Chicago use MAGIGLIDE, and Architects and Developers who spec our door accept no substitutions.

MAGIGLIDE® Product Line

Solid-core MAGIGLIDE doors are custom-sized to 10′ heights and can span unlimited widths. MAGIGLIDE doors can fit traditional-sized closet openings, or can be installed in full-height, wall-to-wall applications for a clean, understated, elegant appearance. Add extra, highly-marketable storage to existing units (no construction needed) by installing custom-sized MAGIGLIDE in front of existing walls.

 

American-made MAGIGLIDE is shipped in truckload quantities directly from manufacturer, from coast to coast and to points overseas. One or both product lines can be ordered for installation within a single building. Green UF-Free Board is available in both series as an upgrade for LEED projects.

Marketing Advantage

MAGIGLIDE greatly increases the marketability of multi-family properties, especially in urban areas where storage space is in high demand. Custom-sized MAGIGLIDE gives Architects remarkable freedom to weave custom designed storage creatively throughout layouts, a powerful selling feature when choosing a property over its competition. MAGIGLIDE is also an essential feature of micro-units, where a single full-height wall-to-wall storage installation is the ultimate swiss army knife for daily life.

 

In addition to abundant, custom-designed storage space, residents also enjoy a solid-core, premium-quality closet door with a smooth, trouble-free glide and no floor track. MAGIGLIDE in full-height jamb-free applications gives residents unobstructed access to upper shelves and no dark, awkward inside corners, a welcome alternative to the frustrations of the conventional closet-box.

Value Engineering

Premium-engineered MAGIGLIDE is often specified in place of generic closet doors with little to no increase in cost to the Developer. MAGIGLIDE in header-free, jamb-free installations costs less than the construction of a conventional closet box (framing, sheet rocking, casing, painting, door cost and door installation). MAGIGLIDE also eliminates maintenance costs associated with never-ending closet-door problems… for the entire life of a building.

 

MAGIGLIDE maximizes usable floorspace.  Custom-sized to any width, MAGIGLIDE eliminates the dead-zones that result from rigid, conventional closet boxes that don’t fit nicely into layouts. The bi-folding function also minimizes the floor space needed for door-operation, an important consideration in smaller urban layouts.

MAGIGLIDE® Portfolio

MAGIGLIDE has over 50 years of proven performance across every large-scale housing category, in both new construction and as a high-impact update to existing buildings. Many of the nation’s most influential Developers, Architects and Property Managers continuously rely on the quality of MAGIGLIDE for their project and property portfolios.

New Construction

MAGIGLIDE is durable, flexible, beautiful, affordable and green. One single product satisfies all building durability and budget requirements while maintaining design consistency throughout. Especially ideal for Mixed-Use, TODs and 80:20’s.

Adaptive Reuse

Custom-sized MAGIGLIDE fits existing layouts with no need to construct or modify existing headers and jambs. MAGIGLIDE in 10’ heights is ideal for high-ceiling urban lofts and warehouse conversions.

Capitol Replacements

MAGIGLIDE saves maintenance costs, reduces liability, increases resident satisfaction and increases marketability of vacated units. Custom-fit to existing openings, MAGIGLIDE replacements are simple, even in fully occupied buildings.
