"While there are a number of manufacturers whose systems might have been adequate, NanaWall's reputation inspired our confidence – and the client's trust."

This elegant vision would have to be backed by durability, however: Not only would the glass wall need to retract daily to accommodate the venue's changing schedule, but the system would have to endure the powerful storms of Atlantic winters. In the end, Tappe's design team specified a customizable SL70 aluminum framed folding system, along with matching transoms, in white framing to match the Water Salon's soft white, minimalist elegance. The 37 monumental outswing panels feature thermally-broken engineering for energy efficiency and occupant comfort.

Before specifying NanaWall for Belle Mer, Tappe's team considered other options, though few offered the folding wall system's flexibility and ease of use. But ultimately, the designers and the client went with NanaWall because of the brand's prominence. "While there are a number of manufacturers whose systems might have been adequate, NanaWall's reputation inspired our confidence – and the client's trust," concludes Gathright.

“We wanted the full length view of a glass wall in a conditioned space, with the flexibility to open the doors to turn it into a patio. NanaWall was the only product that was impact rated and could meet the wind load requirements for these openings.”

"The division of the new dining room into two separate function areas created by the NanaWall harmonizes perfectly with the character and detail of this fine old building.”

"The NanaWall system was key to creating a flexible floor plan to host a variety of events in type and size. It enabled us to seamlessly connect the exterior spaces to the interior, providing guests with a memorable experience."

“Coronado is blessed with world-class views and weather. NanaWall enabled us to extend the interior spaces to the outside while enhancing the experience of those inside the center.”
