New FoldFlat System Allows Folding Glass Panels to Pivot an Unprecedented 180 Degrees

NanaWall Systems has become synonymous with design innovation, as its disappearing glass walls have revolutionized distinctive homes and redefined “interior” and “exterior” spaces. Now, the company takes its innovation to all-new levels with the introduction of FoldFlat, a new product breakthrough that allows folding glass door panels to fold and then pivot all the way back to stack out of and parallel to the opening. This large step forward in the operable glass wall industry allows for expanded functional and aesthetic possibilities and full usage of available square footage.

“Over the years, architects have continually asked, ‘Can you design a system that can fold flat against a wall?’” said NanaWall Systems CEO Ebrahim Nana. “We are delighted to introduce FoldFlat as the solution to that need. This patent-pending technology allows for up to three panels on a side to fold entirely outside of the opening, creating additional space and wider sight lines.”

Available in both aluminum- and wood-framed options, FoldFlat panels span up to nine feet, or 18-feet when paired on either side of an opening. With the FoldFlat system, beautiful views are highlighted as the angle of view is increased because the panels are stacked beyond the actual opening. FoldFlat can also be used for windows, and in NanaWall’s award-winning Kitchen Transition.

FoldFlat is available for NanaWall’s SL45 (aluminum) and WD65 (wood) folding systems. Making its debut at the International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, Feb. 4-6, 2014, FoldFlat is available now.

NanaWall Systems redefined the category of operable glass wall systems. During its 25-plus years in business, the company has earned the trust of architects, builders, design professionals, and homeowners as a solutions provider for re-imagining how buildings, people, and the elements interact. By combining precision engineering and outstanding design options across more than 20 unique systems, NanaWall Systems advances design possibilities beyond the conventional for almost any space.

NanaWall Systems is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, with 22 showroom and design studio locations across North America. NanaWall Systems is the exclusive North American partner of Solarlux Germany, the world leader in operable glass wall technology. For more information, visit or call 800-873-5673.
