“The 12-foot-high NanaWall HSW60 panels gave Snap-on the privacy and room functionality that was required.”
NanaWall’s Single Track Sliding System HSW60 – an aluminum-framed system with open corners – allowed the team at Butterfield, Rudie & Seitz to create a space that changes from fully open to private in seconds. Yet, Rudie emphasizes that the service provided by NanaWall was just as valuable as the well-engineered product. “The team at NanaWall worked with us throughout the design process to help us develop an opaque, sound-deadening glazing system that afforded the privacy we needed, yet still looked fantastic,” he says.
According to Rudie, a top brand like NanaWall was a natural decision for a top brand like Snap-on. “Since Snap-on uses this area to promote their products and the innovation that the company encompasses, it was important to carry through the look and feel of high-tech innovation with the wall solution,” Rudie explains. “Other options included the old-fashioned, accordion-style vinyl folding walls that simply didn’t reflect this project and what Snap-on stands for.”
