If you are looking for custom exterior doors for your business or home, Solar Innovations® has the perfect solution in its stacking glass walls. Slide and Stack glass walls are individual panels which slide along a top hung track and stack to a remote location. This stacking system is designed to accommodate a large number of panels, typically in sizes over 48 inches wide. The top hung system requires that customers’ headers be able to bear the weight of the unit and any questions can be discussed with Solar Innovations®‘s in-house engineering team. We also offer pocketing conditions, which recede into a pocketed space within a home or business.
Versatile Architectural Solutions with Stacking Glass Walls
Solar Innovations® stacking glass walls can incorporate any glazing option available on the market today. LowE Glazing is utilized for both residential and commercial applications because it helps maintain temperature, reduce energy consumption, and provide protection from UV rays. Custom decorative glass options are also available to create a unique look or match an existing project. The glass can be tinted, acid etched, frosted, art glass, or contain applied grids (available with multiple pattern options).
Commercial Slide & Stack Glass Walls
Solar Innovations®‘ stacking glass wall systems can be used in commercial or residential applications as either interior or exterior walls with either thermal or non-thermal rail options. Thermally-enhanced frames contain insulbar, which will create a barrier preventing temperature transfer year round. Non-thermal frames can be used for interior systems, in applications with limited weather exposure, or those regions with minimal weather fluctuation.
Stacking glass wall systems are utilized for straight, angular, multiple face, and curved openings. Units are typically designed in a 60 degree, twin trolley configuration. The dual trolleys located above the vertical rails of the glass panels allow them to slide with greater ease along the track, and the 60 degree design allows for one hand operation of the stacking panels. Solar Innovations® can also design and engineer custom trolley and stacking configurations. These systems can be installed by Solar or by one of our nationwide dealers.
Residential Slide & Stack Glass Walls
Solar Innovations® stacking glass wall systems can be used in commercial or residential applications as either interior or exterior walls with either thermal or non-thermal rail options. Thermally-enhanced frames contain insulbar, which will create a barrier preventing temperature transfer year round. Non-thermal frames can be used for interior systems, in applications with limited weather exposure, or those regions with minimal weather fluctuation.
The Series SI3000S top hung thermally enhanced aluminum stacking glass walls are suitable for use in commercial and residential applications. Multiple sill options and profile dimensions provide greater performance and design flexibility. Customization of product profiles, hardware, sills, and testing can be completed.

Solar Innovations®. has engineered several typical configurations for stacking glass walls, but also offers nearly any custom configuration. Similar to the folding glass wall product line, independent doors, like French and terrace doors, can be incorporated into the panels of the stacking wall system. This provides the option to enter and exit without being required to open all the panels on the entire system. Stacking glass walls can also incorporate various sill options to enhance usability, limit dust collection, and increase water performance.
Several hardware options are available for the stacking system. Panic bars and push or pull handles can be added to any panel, creating an integrated swing door in the French, Dutch, or terrace styles. Operable panels can also include door closers, an adjustable door catch, and/or multiple options for locking mechanisms. Dust proof strikes can also be incorporated to eliminate the build-up of dust or debris in the sill.
