High performance folding glass walls bring the outdoors into your home

For home that blurs the line between indoor and outdoor living, folding glass walls create an easy-to-use solution that can fit into any style.

To help let the sunshine in, Pine Grove, Pennsylvania-based Solar Innovations Inc. introduced a new version of its Monster Wall System.

Solar Innovations, Inc. offers a complete line of high performance structures and accessories including doors, windows, ridge vents, and more.

The company's corporate office and manufacturing facility is LEED Gold Certified, 98.5% landfill free, 85% off the grid, and features a 2,200 panel solar panel array on its roof.

At first glance, the new Monster Wall System looks similar to the previous SI3300 system.

The difference is Solar Innovations, Inc.’s ability to manufacture even larger panels that operate with greater ease and the utilization of this system for several functions: folding, sliding, swinging, and stacking. The new Monster Wall System accommodates impact panels up to (3½’ x 10′); larger panels may be possible (up to 16′ or larger), depending upon engineering criteria.

These are currently the largest impact certified folding doors at 3½ foot by 9½ foot and 3 foot by 10 foot. A third party testing company validates products to ensure the highest quality products.

The glass that goes into the frame is always customized to each project's specifications. Any industry available glass can be utilized in the folding glass walls. Common choices include Low-E glazing, which help maintain a constant temperature in the room. The Low-E glasses also help cut down on fading to furniture and window treatments. Other common glazing choices are acid etched, frosted, and art glass. Grids, both interior and exterior, can be added to your doors in numerous patterns. Screening options are available to ensure the walls are the perfect match for each application.
