"NanaWall's system, which we opted for because of the manufacturer's singular reputation in this field, helped us create what might be the longest fully retractable span in the world." 

Switching from open to closed had to be a relatively fast operation, too. In this way, the NanaWall system allows the facility manager to make the decision to “go open or closed” based on weather conditions just before game time.

"The client also wanted a smaller operable glass wall," continues Lohse, "Four to eight panels, on the Loge level below, were used to enclose an area for food-and-beverage service and casual mingling." Here again, the challenge was to deliver open-air conditions when possible, and minimally obstructed views from the event space when the glass panels were closed. The Loge level’s NanaWall system is smaller in scale but with floor-to-ceiling glass to provide a stunning view of Broncos football events in any weather.

For both spaces, the operable glass walls also have to withstand brutal High Plains winters, requiring a high level of weather resistance.

"We chose the NanaWall SL25 All Glass system as a seamless separation between the suites and stadium because of its clean and subtle appearance. It is a well-engineered operating system that fully opens." 

"NanaWall uniquely balanced operability and thermal performance in delivering unobstructed panoramic views of both Autzen Stadium and the stunning Oregon landscape beyond. It has performed perfectly since day one.”
