Floor-to-ceiling glass walls are the essence of contemporary design and architecture with their slim sightlines and extremely large glass panels. These large glass panels optimize the amount of light that enters our homes and perfectly frame views of the outdoors. Now imagine if these could move. NanaWall systems present a design-forward solution with minimal sliding glass walls with unprecedented durability, ease of operation, and size capabilities. All these features and more work in tandem to create flexible indoor/outdoor spaces and multifunctionality.

Minimal Sliding Glass Walls Redefine Biophilic Design

Biophilic design remains a top contender amidst emerging design trends. The indoor/outdoor experience has become increasingly popular within residential spaces and even commercial buildings like restaurants and retail stores. With floor-to-ceiling glass walls, the threshold between indoors and outdoors is almost non-existing. Larger panels optimize visibility to natural landscapes and gardens while maximizing daylight. Compared to other conventional sliding glass doors, minimal sliding glass walls can glide into hidden pockets within the wall to optimize the entire opening rather than just half of the space.

In Residential Spaces

Floor-to-ceiling glass walls in residential environments promote indoor/outdoor lifestyles and dramatically enhance aesthetics. The aluminum framed panels perfectly complement contemporary home aesthetics and at just 1 5/16” thick, these ultra-thin frames create welcoming light-filled spaces while framing eye-catching landscapes. The outdoors becomes the art, negating the need for extensive interior décor. Compared to conventional sliders, these minimal sliding glass walls offer larger openings, enhanced durability, and low maintenance. No more jamming, no more constant repair bills, and no more water leaks.

In Commercial Spaces

In commercial spaces like restaurants, retail storefronts, hotels, and even car dealerships, minimal sliding glass walls promote space optimization, visibility to passersby, and healthy indoor/outdoor environments with plenty of natural daylight and fresh air ventilation. Restaurants with minimal interior space can simply slide open a wall and extend seating to the outdoors to accommodate larger crowds and increase ROI. When closed, these all glass storefronts offer utmost visibility, alluring potential customers with clear views of appetizing dishes or merchandise. In hotels, these large walls help immerse travelers in the local environment for an authentic, memorable experience.
