Folding Glass Walls

FOLDING GLASS WALLS

Redefining Boundaries

Also known as bi-fold doors or accordion-style doors, folding glass walls can accommodate an unlimited number of panels and configurations.

Opening Up to Paradise

Folding glass walls have been a signature product of Solar Innovations® for over 15 years. These systems offer a flexible and customizable opening that can be incorporated into any residential or commercial project including covered patios, living rooms, decks, enclosed porches, and pool houses. Swing doors can be integrated into the folding glass walls, allowing you to easily enter and exit a room without opening all of the panels. The endless possibilities—including custom color finishes, custom hardware, and highest impact rating—make folding glass walls the perfect opening for any application.

Commercial Applications

As an American manufacturer that specializes in custom folding glass wall systems, Solar Innovations® is ideal for commercial glazing solutions. In addition, Solar creates folding glass walls that are completely customizable. Solar’s specifications simplify the process of incorporating Solar’s products. It is impossible to mention every product application or configuration because there are simply so many.

Commercial hardware options include single and double door panic hardware, corrosion-proof two-point locks, ADA compliant sills, high-performance sills for high wind and water applications, as well as door catches and closers. Solar also has a ten-inch bottom rail available for ADA compliancy if needed.

Residential Applications

Residential folding glass walls can virtually be anywhere in a home. These glass partitions can be used for exterior applications, where there will be contact with wind and water. We also use them as interior operable partition applications where there is no contact with the elements. This system can be fitted into pool enclosures, garages, and sheds. When the glass partition is open, you are presented with ample space for a lawn mower or car to pass. You can add an operable panel into the unit, depending on the configuration of the doors. This door allows you to pass through one panel, like a terrace door, instead of opening the entire unit.

If you desire the functionality of the folding glass wall system, but have concerns about insects, add a Screen System.

TESTIMONIALS

“We just finished installing the 2ndorder of folding glass wall systems into our client, Red Dot restaurant’s building. I decided to write this letter because I’m so impressed with your product. Both systems were well documented, packaged, and built. We have no detectable air infiltration in 15kt wind and it was 10 degrees out! You make a great product.”
