To open the Maglock doors, you must destroy the electric circuit boards associated with them. Most Maglock doors are connected to two circuit boards. There's one inside the room, whereas the other is outside on the wall.

You can easily destroy the circuit board that's outside with your weapons. For the one inside, crack open the window glass, and throw one of your melee weapons on the circuit board. Also, do remember that destroying both circuit boards will trigger an alarm and attract nearby flesh-eaters. The alarm is usually on the outside, so make sure to destroy it before targeting the boards. 

The rooms with the maglock doors contain rare crafting resources and weapons, so it's usually worth the effort.
