NanaWall Opening Glass Walls Provider
About Nana Wall Systems, Inc.
Perceiving an unmet need for flexible solutions to large architectural openings, the founders of Nana Wall Systems delivered their first wood-framed, opening glass wall in 1986. Three years later, Nana Wall Systems, Inc. was incorporated, with the mission of finding, creating, and delivering an ever-broadening array of flexible design solutions. In 1996, Nana Wall Systems entered into partnership with Solarlux of Germany, the world leader in operable glass wall technology. Today, with manufacturer's representatives throughout the continent, Nana Wall Systems is the dominant provider of opening glass walls in North America. Together with Solarlux, over a million panels have been installed worldwide.
A Diverse and Distinguished Clientele
For over twenty five years, the NanaWall — vanishing glass wall system has re-defined interior and exterior space — and the boundary between them—in thousands of commercial and residential buildings throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Nana Wall Systems' architectural customer base includes such esteemed names as HOK, Gensler, WATG, and SOM; projects have ranged from press-boxes and suites at the new Philadelphia Phillies and New York Yankees stadiums to award winning private residences. NanaWall vanishing glass walls can be found providing innovative and versatile design solutions for offices such as Starbucks' headquarters; restaurant and resort patio areas (including the Aulani Disney Resort and Spa); community hubs such as the Skirball Cultural Center; as well as a multitude of libraries, car dealerships, and churches.
If you can imagine it, you can create it... with NanaWall
At first glance, the NanaWall looks like a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, but that's where the similarity ends. Each panel is articulated on a hidden overhead track, and the panels themselves can quickly and easily open and stow away out of sight, creating breathtaking open-air vistas. With straight or curved layouts, along with hundreds of colors, finishes, and configurations at your disposal, there are virtually no limits when it comes to designing with the NanaWall. Folding systems create opening widths of up to 43', while sliding systems offer a virtually unlimited opening-size and can make the panels completely disappear from view when opened. Frames are available in aluminum, wood, or aluminum-clad wood. And to make the completion of your project even easier, NanaWall Systems maintains a complete network of independent, factory-trained installers and service technicians throughout North America.
Precision engineered, built to last
Many NanaWall units are designed and built to meet the most exacting fenestration industry standards for air infiltration, water penetration, structural performance, and forced entry. Many NanaWall vanishing glass walls have been tested for STC rating, and the SL73 NanaWall meets the punishing standards for hurricane approval established by Dade County, Florida.
Don't just take it from us...
The best testament of Nana Wall Systems' integrity comes straight from satisfied customers: from the architectural clients, to the contractors, to the day-to-day end-users whose lives are improved by this unique and exciting solution. Jeff Glenn, principal of Glenn Construction, reports that, "This twelve-foot wall system assembled and installed in about four hours. I couldn't believe it . . . I also think any questions about climate compatibility have been answered with this installation. As the NanaWall faces the lake, it is subject to high winds and temperatures that can reach minus-35° F. I've witnessed no problems with condensation or air leakage."
A commitment to customer service
With unparalleled experience and expertise, Nana Wall Systems has established itself as North America's leading provider of large-opening solutions. That's because the people at Nana Wall Systems believe that their service is just as important as their product—as affirmed by Les Young of APG-America, after the completion of the new Philadelphia Eagles stadium: "One of the most positive decisions made was the use of the NanaWall...From the design process through the fabrication and into the installation process, the cooperation that APG received from both Nana [Wall Systems] and Solarlux was unprecedented . . .We look forward to the next venture with Nana and Solarlux." It's your imagination and feedback that keeps NanaWall Systems striving for excellence and innovation.
