Why Magnador?

We are the only security barrier manufacturer in South Africa, to manufacture and patent stainless steel locks for our expandable security doors, offering additional strength and extended product life. We are also the only company to use tempered rolled hardened cross bracing in our folding security doors. Because of this innovation, our braces are more than double the strength of ordinary steel.


All Magnador folding security doors tracks and channels have Dutch bends, giving the channel a 180 degree fold for greater strength, improved paint adhesion and resistance to corrosion. In severe rust conditions our products are coated with an additional zinc primer and a textured exterior powder coating which is not smooth, to further reduce the effects of rust. These powders provide good impact strength, excellent durability, flexibility, good adhesion, weather resistance and corrosion protection. These added features ensure superior product appearance and feel.


We believe that the outstanding quality and extensive range of our products truly sets us apart from our competitors. Our range of products includes:

  • Expandable security doors – this includes our Magnador Champion, Magnador Standard, Alphador and Budgetdor ranges that cater to any budget.
  • Burglar bars – we manufacture standard as well as custom ranges of burglar bars, offering our customers design flexibility and choice.
  • Trellis swing gates – offering practicality without compromising strength and durability, this is a fold away security door with a top track for the door to slide in.
  • Cottage bars – elegant burglar proofing for cottage style windows ensures security without loss of the cottage look and feel.
  • Sliding security doors - our patio security doors are produced at various levels of security to cater for severe high risk areas to low risk areas.
  • Home security gates – we manufacture custom designed iron security gates to enhance the appearance of your home or business. Several decorative scrolls, castings or forged iron patterns are available to ensure a unique design. We also offer standard swing gate designs to choose from.

Our Fitment Promise

Magnador can be fitted into all doors, patios, windows, counters, shop fronts, canteens, bar serving areas, offices, arch openings, and more. On average your Magnador fitting will occupy no more than 20% of the width of the specific opening. If this is still a hindrance, a face on fitting can be made to allow the Magnador to slide beside the wall, leaving the opening 100% free. For extra convenience, the bottom track consists of a non-trip design. 99% of the bottom tracks are easily fitted to the floor surface. If preferred, the track can be fitted into a recess prepared by us, or others, to provide a level plane at an additional fee.


Magnador is securely attached to the site by using UL 8 plugs and galvanised coach bolts. No fixing points are easily visible or accessible, which renders the removal, or tampering of these items very difficult. Magnador can provide an electric lock mechanism for easy access control at an additional fee.


Magnador attempts to attain the highest standards in all areas of its operations and is dedicated to provide its customers the best possible product, service and integrity, using quality control management systems to ISO 9001:2015 standards and is audited and accredited biannually by the South African Bureau of Standards.
