New SL80/81 combines elegance and thermal performance

The SL80/81 Folding Series offers superior Thermal performance: U-values as low as 0.22.

The folding panels are the narrowest available at just 1-7/8 inches wide, yet individual panels can be specified up to ten feet tall and more than three feet wide. - NanaWall Systems CEO Ebrahim Nana

In another move that will redefine what is possible in architecture and design, NanaWall Systems will present the thinnest profile, most energy-efficient opening glass wall on the market—the new NanaWall SL80/81 Folding Series—at the 2015 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Expo in Atlanta on May 14-16, 2015 at booth 2659. With an ultra-thin profile, unparalleled thermal performance and virtually unlimited configuration options―including inward or outward opening, the system promises to create entirely new possibilities in residential and commercial applications.

“Our new SL80/81 Folding Series is so thin, it must be seen to be appreciated,” notes NanaWall Systems CEO Ebrahim Nana. “The folding panels are the narrowest available at just 1-7/8 inches wide, yet individual panels can be specified up to ten feet tall and more than three feet wide. Furthermore, with a triple insulated core, this folding system is extremely energy efficient.”

NanaWall SL80/81 Folding Series is an aluminum framed, thermally broken folding system which allows for expansive glass walls and broad vistas when opened. The SL80 features a smooth rounded frame profile, compared to the angular profile of the SL81.

The SL80 and SL81 are the most energy efficient of its kind on the market and are rated, certified and labeled National Fenestration Rating Council 100/200 and are able to meet Energy Star standards. The system also excels at air and water resistance as well as superior sound insulation.

With the NanaWall Floor Supported Technology, the new system offers ultra-smooth operation (rolling on stainless steel wheels on a stainless steel track) and more flexibility for applications where a building’s height might change over time, such as from settling or snow loads.

At AIA, architects will also be able to test drive the new NanaWall Conceptual Drawing Program, a service that assists architects early in the design stage from the first simple hand sketch to providing 3-D Conceptual Drawings of the project to gain greater understanding of how to design with NanaWall systems. The company will also showcase its award-winning Kitchen Transition 2.0, a single track sliding system with a dual height window/door combination that opens a countertop and/or the entire kitchen area to the outside.
