New Products: Why You Should Be at the 2012 AIA Convention

By , May 16, 2012

Are you coming to DC for AIA 2012? If so, be sure to stop by the NanaWall booth – the best operable walls out there! This year’s AIA convention will be held May 17-19 at Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC. What are some of the reasons for an emerging design professional to attend? First of all, it is an opportunity to learn – about design solutions and ideas on the exposition floor, by attending one of the 150 continuing education sessions, or to get inspired by some of the renowned keynote speakers. Secondly, it is an excellent way to network and connect with colleagues, in order to share practices and develop life-long relationships. Our booth is #1139, hope to see you there!

The NanaWall HSW66 SwingSlide – sliding glass walls with a center swing French door - is now available with unlimited widths.

The NanaWall difference is that both the operable doors and sidelights can slide away to create an unobstructed opening. Shown here four panels in 18-foot by 8-foot opening in Manitou, Colo.
