Hover Doors Brings Frictionless Mag-Lev in your Living Room
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Californian company Hover Doors bring frictionless mag-lev into your living room. Hover Doors uses permanent magnets that help float heavy sliding doors making them smooth like never before making the open and close with minimal effort and are super-quiet.

According to the company, it will deduct the troublesome roller door maintenance we’re all losing hours to every day. This roller door tech is the world’s first, though companies like Olide have been around building mag-lev doors. 

The remarkable difference with Hover Doors is the permanent magnets, that keep the doors suspended at all times and are guaranteed to last for life. Once power is cut off, devices that rely on electromagnets to operate will stop working. This includes fire doors. Without power, these doors will separate from their rails and be less effective at keeping people safe.Hover Doors Brings Frictionless Mag-Lev in your Living Room_1Hover Doors mentioned it will make the frames up to the size of a patio or conference room doors, which likely involves a fair whack of rare earth elements. You see this reflected in the price. You can get them with wood, glass, or acrylic windows. If you need to block out wind and rain, they also offer lower railings; if not, you can suspend them from above.

Additionally, they will install double doors, barn doors, pocket doors, and office doors. They will also be installing waterproof shower doors and automatic doors of all kinds. Little soft-close mechanisms are included to keep you from smashing things with your door because we’ve all been there.

Both Hover Door and Talbot Auto Doors an Australian company, claim that their doors are silent, but it’s pretty clear from YouTube videos that this isn’t the case. It seems to be a matter of whether you install guide rails or not.

They’ll hang glass, wood, or whatever else you want to make a door from, and you can either fit a lower rail to block out wind and water or float the things over the floor if you’re feeling particularly confident no clown’s going to push on them and snap them off.

They’ll do double doors, barn doors, pocket doors, or office doors. They’ll do waterproof shower doors and automatic doors of all flavors. Little soft-close mechanisms are included to help stop you from smashing anything by applying the amount of force you’d generally apply to a slider.
