I can't get the deadbolt on my swing panel to latch. what do I do?
The standard multipoint locking system on NanaWall swing panels is a high security lock. This system does require the handle to be lifted, after the panel is in the closed position and prior to turning the deadbolt thumb-turn or key cylinder. Please refer to the instructions in your Owner’s Manual.
what do I do if my panel catch is sticking and won't release the panel?
Most commonly this can happen if the panel catch gets dirty or if there are any oils on the catch. Simply take a dry paper towel and wipe the catch down, no need for any cleaners (careful not to leave oils from your hands on the catch). Less commonly this could mean that the NanaWall system is out of adjustment. If this is the case, please refer to your Owner’s Manual or contact your installer to schedule a maintenance visit.
How to identify the panel when requesting inquiries on panels or glass?
A NanaWall unit is read from the inside looking out from left to right.
My glass broke... now what?
The standard glass for most NanaWall systems is Tempered glass (you may have laminated or impact). Tempered glass is stronger than plate glass or annealed glass thus reducing the risk of breakage; however even tempered glass can break. A pane of broken glass is easily remedied. Please Contact Service with your order information and we will get you the glass sizes and/or a quote for replacement glass.
My order was delivered, but there is transport damage. what do I do?
Please accept the delivery of the product, NanaWall guaranties to make your product whole. Please take photos of the damage and the barcode label that is on the damaged item(s). Then email them with your order number to the Service Department and we will get everything sorted out for you.
Can I change the configuration of my nanawall system?
Not all, but many systems can be changed; however, this is a very complicated process. Please Contact Service for options and information.
How often should my nanawall system(s) be serviced to keep up the maintenance?
All NanaWall products need regular maintenance to insure that all components are functioning smoothly and properly. Minimal usage units should undergo and inspection and adjustment at least once a year. For high usage units, inspection and adjustment should happen at least twice a year. If damaged components are found, have them replaced immediately to avoid further damage to your product.
I have noticed some corrosion on some of the stainless steel hardware on my NanaWall system how can I remove it?
The surface build up on all NanaWall Stainless steel hardware is generally due to the harsh environment or the lack of maintenance. Please see the attached PDF that explains the nature of the stainless steel hardware as well as the cleaning process.
My bottom roller has broken. What may have caused this to happen?
The structural header may have deflected and/or the system is not properly adjusted. Either of these scenarios can cause the head track to come down, thereby putting pressure on the bottom rollers. If the panels are then forced, the rollers can catch on the screw heads installed in the sill channel, resulting in breakage
Why is the handle on my folding panel just spinning or stuck in place? I am unable to open or lock/unlock this panel.
There is a channel in the top and bottom track that has space for the locking rods. When locking the door it is imperative that the door is lined up correctly, allowing the locking rods into their proper place (the channel). If not lined up properly the locking rods will get stuck, at this point you will feel resistance when turning the handle, and if continued force is applied when not lined up properly the internal locking mechanism will fail.
My glass has suddenly shattered. Nothing hit it. How could this possibly happen?
This is known as Spontaneous Glass Breakage. The cause can be any of the following for tempered glass: nickel-sulfide stones in relation to varying temperatures, damage to the edge of the glass as a result of installation/handling, building or framing system movement, inadequate engineering, etc. There are many variables at play. Feel free to contact our Service Team to discuss this matter in greater detail.
My glass has a crack.
This can be the result of a thermal stress fracture caused by the uneven distribution of the sun due to an overhang or the use of blinds/curtains. For example: part of the glass is kept cool in the shade while another portion is subject to sunlight and heat.
Do you accept purchase order for replacement parts?
No, we do not accept purchase orders. Payment must be received in full to place your order.
Some General Considerations on all Projects
1. It is important that the product is installed correctly. A poorly installed unit will not function properly. This will cause more abnormal force or stress on the components and will lead to premature failure. When operating the unit, the panels should generally be able to be moved easily by one person (except when there are very large panels or when there are more than 6 panels folding to one side). All locking points should engage smoothly. There should be no rubbing on the floor and no binding. When the unit is closed, the reveal between panels and head jamb and between panels and sill should be consistent. There should be no daylight seen from the inside. Please have all problems corrected as soon as possible by a qualified technician.
2. From time to time, due to building movement or settlement, a unit may need to be adjusted by a qualified technician to compensate for any building change.
3. It is important that a unit is operated properly. Locking points should be gently opened and closed and not forced. Panels should be opened and closed in the proper manner and sequence. See the Operation section in your Owner’s Manual for proper operation.
4. Periodically check for worn or damaged components and replace as soon as possible. A unit with nonworking components will subject the other components to increased stress and lead to premature failure. A unit with worn or damaged components will compromise the performance level expected for air and water infiltration, structural loading and forced entry.
5. Periodically, inspect the sealant/caulking on the exterior perimeter of the unit. It is extremely important that the sealant/caulking remains intact and in good condition. Trim off any old, loose caulking and seal any gaps with a good quality caulk. Be sure to check that the door is locked: The door is locked, when the handle cannot be depressed.
6. Check that all weep holes are clean and clear of any obstructions. Remove debris and other foreign bodies which have dropped into the tracks in the head jamb and sill immediately to prevent damaging the running carriages and guide trolleys. Clean all components as needed. Check gaskets for proper seating and condition. Remove dust and any deposits from these gaskets.
7. The finished aluminum or wood surface needs periodic cleaning and maintenance. Its appearance may be marred by harsh chemicals, abuse or neglect. Frequency of cleaning depends on exposure and needs. For aluminum surfaces, generally warm soapy water should be sufficient. Stubborn stains and deposits may be removed with mineral spirits. For wood surfaces, superficial surface dirt can be removed by washing with water and a soft-bristled, long-handled brush. Heavier accumulations can be removed with a mild solution of household detergent. For all surfaces, aggressive alkaline or acid cleaners should not be used. Excessive abrasive rubbing should be avoided. Sealants and weather stripping may be affected by strong organic solvents. Superficial damage to the aluminum surface must be touched up immediately with proper touch up paint.
8. If it is a wood product, the surface should be visually inspected every six months or earlier, depending on the exposure of the NanaWall unit. Periodically re-paint or re-stain the wood as needed. Exposure to the environment will break down the finish and compromise its protective features if not refinished. See Finishing Recommendations in the Owner’s Manual of the wood systems.
9. All hardware, hinges and handles should be periodically cleaned with a soft cloth and mild cleanser. Excessive abrasive rubbing should be avoided. Please note that oil rubbed brass is a finish that will develop its own unique patina over time.
10. About every six months, apply lubricant to all the hinges and Teflon spray to the running carriages and guiding trolleys.
Some specific suggested maintenance for coastal salt water and other extreme environments:
Please note that the environment within one mile of a sea coast can be extremely corrosive. Products installed in this environment will typically deteriorate sooner than products installed in a less severe environment.
1. Open and close completely a unit at least once a week and inspect all surfaces.
a. Salt and other corrosive or abrasive materials such as sand must not be allowed to build up on any surfaces, including all hardware and sill.
b. The sill and head jamb tracks should be free from all dirt and debris.
c. There should be no standing water in the track in the sill.
d. All hardware should be intact and operating properly.
2. All surfaces must be cleaned with a mild detergent soap and fresh water at least every month and more frequently if necessary.
a. After washing, the surface should be rinsed thoroughly with clean water and allowed to dry.
b. For cleaning, do not use abrasive household cleaners or materials like steel wool or hard brushes that can wear and harm finishes.
c. Any glass cleaner used should not be allowed to run down on any other surface.
3. Any breaches in the paint coating, such as scratches, chips or areas of abrasion, must be repaired immediately.
4. Every 3 months, thoroughly clean and dry all upper and lower rollers and all hinges. Liberally apply lubricant such as Teflon spray (no grease) on the wheels and bearings of the rollers. Oil all hinges including the hinge pin with light weight lubricating oil or Teflon spray.
5. As with any painted surface exposed to corrosive environments, every 6 months apply a wax to the outside of the painted panel and painted track. If the system includes corner connections make sure the wax penetrates the connection joints.
