NanaWall Introduces Durable Folding Glass Wall System

The WA67’s mounting includes a space between materials in order to create an evaporation chamber for the excess moisture to escape and to allow the wood to regain equilibrium naturally.

NanaWall Systems, a custom-made opening glass wall systems manufacturer, has introduced the WA67, a folding glass system that mounts extruded aluminum cladding to a solid wood core with a spacer bar to secure the materials together. This new feature allows for different expansion rates between materials to avoid cracking and to ensure longevity and durability in any climate.

With NanaWall’s proprietary evaporation chamber permitting the wood and aluminum to expand and contract, the WA67 can withstand any changes in weather. Features include triple-seals, triple-paned glass and deeper door panels for high weather performance, inward or outward opening door panels and 50 color choices for the aluminum cladding. The system can be top hung or floor supported.

“With the heat and humidity we get in the South, clad systems where the aluminum and wood touch or are glued together can cause warping since wood and aluminum expand and contract at different rates. …This is the only product in the industry that has this feature,” said Kenny Cobb, owner of Architectural Openings, in a prepared statement.
