Thank you for another great year!

photo story contest success

2014 kicked off with the announcement of our annual Photo Story Contest winners! We received more entries than ever before—making it the most competitive Photo Story Contest to date. Architects, designers, contractors and homeowners submitted their favorite projects into a dozen different categories, sharing some of the most unique applications we’ve seen to date. The entries showcased a variety of different uses in which our opening glass walls completely transformed the environment and living spaces. Take a look at the winning projects!

three new product launches at international builders show (IBS)

At the International Builders Show (IBS) in late January, we launched three new products: FoldFlat, NanaScreen ONE and NanaWellness!

  • FoldFlat: available as an option for our SL45 and WD65 opening glass walls, is the only folding glass wall that allows the door panels to rotate and stack an entire 180°, making this a popular option for projects requiring maximum use of space.
  • NanaScreen ONE: a non-pleated screen made of ultra-strong and UV resistant fiberglass mesh is housed in a single cartridge. Its ease of operation and ability to stop and lock in place at any given point makes it an attractive screening solution.
  • NanaWellness: by using NanaWellness technology and their NanaWall opening glass wall, homeowners can better measure and manage their indoor air quality for a healthier home. State of the art sensors measure temperature, volatile organic compounds, humidity, noise, ambient light, and barometric pressure.

Arizona Residece features the FoldFlat
