Clear Glass Walls

Clear Glass Walls

Our clear glass walls create a seamless wall with uninhibited views. The unit’s non-thermal design makes it a great choice for interior room dividers, but Solar Innovations® can engineer the clear glass wall for exterior use as well, making it an ideal product selection for stadium suites. Panels are typically top hung, however, bottom load sliding options are also available.  Solar’s clear glass walls can be designed to operate with multiple configurations. The non-thermal clear glass walls are typically used for interior and light exterior applications. No vertical frame is required; however, Solar Innovations® offers mono seal and dual-seal insulating frames that are recommended when the clear glass wall system will be utilized for outdoor applications.

Glass with Narrow Profile Frame

A glass with narrow profile aluminum frame style has a narrow metal frame on the verticals as well as the top and bottom of each glass panel.  This design is highly recommended for outdoor applications, as it is the best option for preventing sound, air, and water transmittance.

Glass to Glass

In a glass to glass style, the glass edges are completely exposed and there is no vertical framing. This is only recommended for interior use because sound, air, and water can easily pass through the small gaps between the panels.

Glass with Gasket

In a glass with gasket style, the framing has gaskets attached to the vertical sides of each glass panel that touch when the wall is closed and help reduce sound, air, and water transmittance.

Non-thermal Aluminum

Non-thermal aluminum framework is used on all three styles. The aluminum will not rust, rot or require constant finish maintenance. The non-thermal frame is suitable for interior applications because there is no need for insulation because the doors are used on the interior of a space. If your job requires a thermally isolated clear wall please contact your Solar Innovations, Inc. representative to discuss options.

Custom Engineering for Custom Glazed Windows and Doors

Custom Engineered

Each Solar Innovations system is custom made to order based on your project needs and preferences. Our team of engineering experts has you covered.

Made in the USA

Made in America

All our products are designed and manufactured in the United States at our state-of-the-art facility in Pine Grove, PA.

Ease of Operation

Solar Innovations’ systems offer single-handed operation and move smoothly with little effort. Much of our hardware is manufactured in house which allows us to control lead times.

Monsterous Sizes

Solar Innovations has the ability to manufacture even larger panels that operate with greater ease for several functions: folding, sliding, swinging, and stacking.

Hardware

Security is always a concern with doors. Traditional hardware cannot be utilized on the doors. Instead of locking by way of the lever, these doors lock with a floor lock. Depending on configuration, operable panels can be utilized within the unit and this door can be locked in place. The hardware used for Solar Innovations® clear wall units is all of the highest quality. All helical bearings, in the head, are constructed out of stainless steel, which is corrosion resistant. The gaskets used on two of the models are available in both black and clear, which allows for more design options and visual cohesiveness.

Solar Innovations SI3000C Clear Glass Walls maximize transparency for stadium suites, balcony enclosures, interior operable partitions, etc. Individual top load bearing clear glass panels are made to a maximum panel size of 3′ x 10′, or possibly larger while offering some protection from wind. Aluminum profiles capture the head and sill, while the vertical edges of the glass remain free. When the doors are open, they can be neatly stacked or pocketed away in a remote location. Special gaskets can be used to provide a minimal level of air and water performance upon request.

Center Hung: Selected when the panels need to turn and stack perpendicular to the wall.

Twin Trolley: Locate dual trolleys above the vertical rails. This will create an ease of movement second to none in the industry.

Fully Hinged: Fully hinged or ‘hinged pairs’ are the most popular configuration choice.

Note: Units are secured by a floor lock, as traditional locking hardware cannot be utilized with the unique engineering of the clear wall system.
