Aluminum Folding Doors
The NanaWall® aluminum folding doors are designed for large glass openings. The elegant, precision, engineered NanaWall aluminum folding doors meet the most challenging architectural specifications.
The custom made NanaWall aluminum folding doors are available in aluminum, wood or clad frames with a selection of over two hundred colors. Independent testing confirms that NanaWall aluminum folding doors meet or exceed industry standards for air infiltration, water penetration, structural & thermal performance and forced entry.
Enjoy the best of both worlds: a room with a view that opens to the outdoors yet gives you the peace of mind only weather resistant NanaWall aluminum folding doors provide.
NanaWall's are panels connected together in a train. Panels can be hinged off both side jambs to meet in a number of ways. When open, panels remain 90 degrees to the opening.
Advantages of the NanaWall
- With an odd number of panels stacking to one side, a single acting operable door is possible
- Versatile functions with swing enter/exit panel(s) options and with flexibility to fully or partially open.
- Ease of operation to quickly open or close wide openings
- No auxiliary track support is needed as all structural loads are within the plane of the opening.
- Both top supported and floor mounted systems are available
- A multitude of stacking configurations, as well as inward or outward opening options, is available. Variations include paired panels and center pivot options.
With NanaWall aluminum folding doors you can choose from hundreds of configuration options. Shown below are some examples. The total number of panels in your wall opening depends on your design and the combination of panel height, width and glazing. With a limit of six hinged panels stacking to one side, a maximum width of about 36' is recommended for exterior applications and about 40' for interior applications. With top-hung systems - with additional unhinged paired panels - the maximum number of panels and width is virtually unlimited.
“Our clients were a fun-loving couple with a small dark kitchen, whose love of cooking together and entertaining family and friends incited them to seek larger, open sunlit spaces where they could jointly cook and entertain. Nana wall was the solution. An extra long folding Nanawall was installed on the exterior wall of the kitchen bump out. It opens up the 18 ft wall completely for great indoor/outdoor entertainment flow, and provides a preponderance of natural light when closed. While only 200 sq ft was added on, it feels like so much more, because of this door. When the door is open, the kitchen is so much bigger since it integrates the exterior space as well.”
