Perceiving an unmet need for flexible solutions to large architectural openings, the founders of NanaWall Systems delivered their first wood-framed, opening glass wall in 1986. Three years later, NanaWall Systems, Inc. was incorporated, with the mission of finding, creating, and delivering an ever-broadening array of flexible design solutions. In 1996, Nana Wall Systems entered into partnership with Solarlux of Germany, the world leader in operable glass wall technology. Today, with manufacturer's representatives throughout the continent, Nana Wall Systems is the dominant provider of opening glass walls in North America.
