Daylighting Design and Large Opening Glass Walls
NanaWall® Systems is the exclusive North American partner of Solarlux of Germany, the world leader in operable glass wall technology. For nearly twenty years, the NanaWall® vanishing glass wall system has re-defined interior and exterior space, and the boundary between them,in thousands of commercial and residential buildings. At first glance, the NanaWall® looks like a wall of floor-to-ceiling glass windows, but that's where the similarity ends. Each panel is articulated on a hidden overhead track, and the panels themselves can quickly and easily open and stow away out of sight, creating breathtaking open-air vistas.
