Mill Valley, CA (PRWEB) December 7, 2009
NanaWall Systems, the industry leader in opening glass walls, announces its newest product for architects and builders: NanaWall® SL70 with Triple Glazing, providing exceptional thermal performance for the harshest weather conditions. The NanaWall triple glazed SL70 system provides flexible solutions to architectural openings from three to thirty six feet wide using one to twelve panels.
The SL70 system was chosen for the glass pavilion at the Bavarian Zugspitzbahn Bergbahn, a ski resort in the Alps over 8,000 feet above sea level. The pavilion includes forty six panels of the SL70 including three folding glass door systems of six panels each, and seven folding glass window units with four panels each.
The architect chose the SL70 System because it met the client's challenging specifications and testing requirements to provide
- comfort despite temperature variations from -40° F (-40° C) to 60° F (+15° C)
- large opening walls that can withstand wind speeds of up to 125 miles per hour with the associated pressure and suction.
The NanaWall SL70 with Triple Glazing system has an NFRC certified U-value of .30 and a Solar Heat Gain Coefficient of .24. It meets Energy Star requirements for all areas of the US and areas A and B of Canada. It also provides high weather resistance and structural performance. For inswing and outswing models with a raised sill, independent testing indicates that there was no water leakage at 12 psf or 68 miles per hour. The NanaWall SL70 with Triple Glazing is available in more than 200 finishes as a floor-mounted system with more than 50 stacking configurations.
"NanaWall Systems is the first folding door company to offer triple glazing," said Ebrahim Nana, president of NanaWall Systems. "Along with our partner Solarlux, Germany, NanaWall Systems is committed to developing opening glass wall systems for large openings for our customers in the harshest climate conditions - whether a hurricane zone or the top of a glacier."
