Nanawall systems come with a variety of mounting and operation options.


 

NanaWall systems come in two main types: folding and sliding. The folding
systems consist of aluminum or wood-frame glazed panels riding in top and
bottom-mounted track systems. Flush and surface-mount sills are available,
including a saddle sill for barrier-free applications. Systems incorporate a
thermally broken structural strut, so installers can avoid pouring and
de-bridging. Panels can swing in or out and can be stacked in a variety of
configurations. With dual and triple glazing Lagasse said folding systems can
achieve as low as 0.29 U-values and Energy Star ratings in southern Canadian
zones. Panic hardware, concealed hardware and screened openings are all
available. The sliding systems add the advantage of hiding the panels inside a
wall pocket or in a remote location when the wall is opened – NanWall has even
done systems where the panels are stored across a hall from the actual wall
location. Sliding systems are supported from the top and are used with flush or
low-profile sills. U-values drop as low as 0.26. The glazing is not involved in
the structural integrity, so many decorative options are available in sliding
systems. The systems can be rated for force-entry resistance and hurricane
resistance. They can also meet AAMA standards for air/water ingress.
Incorporating photo-chromatic glazing has been a challenge due to the wiring
requirements. The company has done systems up to 300 feet long.
