Unique Gothic Arch Roller Design for Ease of Operation

NW Acoustical 545 is engineered for ease of use. Hinged panels are intuitive and quick to operate allowing staff to easily open or close the system on demand.

The running carriage rolls on a Gothic arch stainless steel wheel design supported by a double row of ball bearings. With a 2-point contact of each wheel to the floor track, the system glides quietly and smoothly with less friction by providing an equal distribution of weight on the stainless steel track.

Floor Supported Folding Glass Wall Technology

NW Acoustical 545 is the only wood framed, floor supported folding glass wall system to achieve unit STC 41. With floor supported systems, the main weight of the unit is carried by the lower stainless steel wheel assembly gliding on top of the stainless steel floor track. The top track is used merely as a guide. Floor supported systems are ideal for applications where load-bearing capability of the header is a concern.

Designed specifically for interior applications, the Minimal Surface Mounted Flush sill is ADA compliant and when installed with finished flooring, has only a mere 15/16" (23.5 mm) visible groove.

The shallow surface mounted sill allows for easy installation. This sill can be installed on the foundation or sub-floor and finished flooring can butt up to the floor track creating seamless integration between interior spaces.
