NanaWall System Is Suitable In Hurricanes

CORTE MADERA, Calif., June 25, 2013—Many of the world’s most elegant vistas are located in beautiful, yet destructive hurricane-prone regions. The NanaWall Aluminum Framed Folding System SL73 provides homes, businesses and condos with open views and is specifically designed and engineered to perform in harsh climates, eliminating the need for unsightly hurricane shutters. The SL73 received high ratings on both static and dynamic pressure water resistance tests, and is tested to meet the country’s most demanding standards for preventing water, wind and debris from entering the building—not only at the ground level, but up to 15 stories.

The NanaWall SL73 is manufactured as a single-source product specifically for hurricane zones. With features such as dual stainless steel running carriages, encapsulated ball bearings, the superior design and materials of the SL73 helps prevent corrosion issues often associated with harsher climates.  When it comes to performance, the system is tested to meet the requirements of the Miami-Dade County Hurricane Impact Test and the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) for both inswing and outswing applications. 

“The NanaWall SL73 is precision-engineered to deliver high structural performance and weather resistance in the most extreme climate zones,” said Ebrahim Nana, CEO of NanaWall Systems. “Our system can be configured to include either inswing or outswing doors, making it one of the only folding glass wall systems on the market to offer both ingenuity and performance, all while maintaining its hurricane-force rating.” 

The NanaWall SL73 can be configured to span openings up to 38 feet wide and provides stunning floor-to-ceiling views that have redefined the aesthetic boundary between the indoors and outdoors. The system has been tested to meet the National Fenestration Rating Council standards and ENERGY STAR® requirements, signifying its superior energy efficiency and humidity control for both residential and commercial applications

Design options are limitless when it comes to choosing among the SL73’s style collection with more than 200 finishes available, including simulated wood-grain. The secure, easy-to-use system is also available with the NanaScreen, which helps control insects, and can be easily pocketed for storage.
