All opening requirements and surrounding conditions must be ready and meet the NanaWall supplied drawings before the certified installer arrives. Installers can review the openings before installation to ensure accuracy and verify all opening requirements have been met.

Upon completion, the certified installer will ask to have a sign-off sheet completed, this will ensure your satisfaction with the installation of your NanaWall system.  The certified installer will be available for a complete operational demonstration at time of installation. NanaWall helps certified installers through continuous education to make sure they are up to date on all of our 20+ different systems. Their training process includes extensive education for both folding and sliding systems.  Our installation management team makes periodic site visits to ensure the high standard of quality installation is maintained.  Due to the extensive training your certified installer receives, it will ensure your NanaWall System is installed right, on-time, and hassle-free.

A benefit using certified installers is increased warranty coverage (review for details) of your new NanaWall system.  Many areas have both commercial and residential trained installers.

Installation Considerations

The approximate weight of a panel is the following:

  • Single Impact Glazing: 8 lbs/sqft
  • Insulated Impact Glazing: 11 lbs/sqft
  • Tempered Single Glazing: 4 - 4.5* lbs/sqft
  • Insulated Tempered Glazing: 5.5 - 8* lbs/sqft
  • Tempered Triple Glazing: 6 - 8.5* lbs/sqft

* The higher values applies to taller units

For the HSW75, FSW75, CSW75, PrivaSEE, and ClimaCLEAR systems the weight of a panel with 1/2" glass is 8 lbs/sqft. 

For cero II the approximate weight of a panel for double glazed is 10 lbs/sqft and for double glazed laminated is 12 lbs/sqft.

For cero III the approximate weight of a panel for triple glazed is 13 lbs/sqft and for triple glazed laminated is 15 lbs/sqft.

The vertical structural deflection of the header should be the lesser of L/720 of the span and 1/4" under full loads. Structural support for lateral loads (both windload and when the panels are stacked open) must also be provided.

For floor supported systems (NW Aluminum 640, NW Acoustical 645, NW Reinforced 647, NW Aluminum 840, NW Reinforced 847, SL70, SL73 Hurricane, SL82, and SL60, NW Wood 540, NW Acoustical 545, NW Clad 740, please note that there is no vertical load on the header).

It is recommended that all building loads be applied to the header prior to installing the NanaWall. If so and if a reasonable amount of time has been allowed for the effect of this dead load on the header, only then can the building's live can be used to meet the above requirements of L/720 or 1/4". If not, both the dead and live loads needs to be considered.
