Super Storm Sandy and NanaWall
By , February 21, 2013
Here’s an authentic letter written by Jacqueline Zapson who shares her experience with the SL73 at her waterfront home in Long Beach, New York. The letter truly speaks for itself!
February 16, 2013
I am writing to tell you that I am in love with my NanaWall door! Last spring my husband and I had a nine-foot, three panel NanaWall door installed in the ground floor living room of our waterfront home in Long Beach, New York. It sits only about twelve feet from the open bay, and affords us beautiful water views. We love to open it all the way and let the bay breeze blow into the house. The way it expands our living space is fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed it all summer!
On October 29, 2012 Long Beach was hit terribly hard by Superstorm Sandy. The entire island was under water as the ocean met the bay. Fourteen foot waves crashed against our house for hours while the winds howled. Exterior walls and giant picture windows were shattered by wind and water. Two six foot glass sliding doors were blown completely out of their frames. Five feet of muddy water flowed into and out of our home with the surge. This all went on for several high tide cycles. Despite major damage sustained by our house, the NanaWall door in our living room held firm through the entire ordeal! The glass was not broken, the frame was not damaged, and the door remained closed and secure. We were amazed! Thank you for providing such an excellent product. I would be happy to recommend the NanaWall systems to all of my friends!
Sincerely, Jacqueline Zapson
An experience like this one proves that NanaWall openign glass walls continue to have incomparable performance and durability. Amazed by the quality of our product, Jacqueline ordered a second set of folding doors.
