Security issues are prevalent everywhere, with concerns related to break-ins, unrest, vandalism and other causes. Protection from intrusion can be an important feature in building design. Protective barriers are often utilized to prevent unwanted entry, but to provide meaningful protection they must be sturdy and robust, and often heavy. Fire separation barriers, refuge doors and other protective measures for similar security issues likewise often entail considerable weight.

With all of these, when needed, they must be readily operable without undue effort. MagneGlide magnetic support technology can provide designers with additional options for incorporating movable protective barriers into facility designs.
