Before diving into the Window Wall’s unique beauty and functionality, it helps to know what it is and what sets it apart from other window systems.
What is the Window Wall?
Simply put, the Window Wall is one of the most innovative window systems in North America. Capable of covering walls up to 50ft in length, the Window Wall is constructed of glass panels that operate independently from one another. This allows homeowners to customize the wall opening to whatever size they please. The configuration can range from a full wall of glass when the unit is completely closed, to a small entry door when just one panel is open, to a fully open wall that provides unobstructed views and access to a yard, deck or patio.
Magic Window Walls come with retractable insect screens and blinds which allow for unprecedented control over light, heat and insects. While it sounds like a complicated system, Window Walls are maintenance-free and incredibly easy to operate. The panels interlock and are airtight so they are secure and energy-efficient. This Window Wall Creates an Open-Air Poolroom.
1. This Window Wall Creates an Open-Air Poolroom
Here is an excellent example of how the Window Wall is able to create stunning transitions between an interior space and a backyard, deck or patio. Creating these panoramic, effortless transitions between inside and out is one of the more popular window design trends in contemporary home design.
Glass Window Walls Provide More Light and More Views
Naturalist Nick Baker once lamented about the “built environment” saying that it “increasingly isolates us from the natural world.” Today, however, panoramic glass walls bring us closer to the natural world, as it is a key material in modern-day architectural design. When incorporated as part of the façade in homes and office buildings, glass Window Walls let in sunlight and allow us to feel connected to a more natural environment.
There has been extensive research into these two benefits of glass-walls — both daylight and views. Studies have shown that sunlight is highly desirable in the interiors of buildings by 73% of office workers, 91% of patients in hospitals, and 93% of homeowners.1
2. This Window Wall Creates a Stunning, Bright Workspace
Backyard sheds, offices and workspaces don’t have to be dark, dreary and closed off from the house and the yard. This Window Wall installation shows the amazing potential these spaces have to be bright, open and aesthetically pleasing.
Window Walls are Energy Efficient and Made for Life in Canada
Our Magic-Series Window Wall is not only a great way to bolster the aesthetics of your home; it’s also specifically designed to perform according to different seasons. The Window Wall is the first product of its kind that’s specifically designed for Canada’s extreme climate. It’s free of any hinges or other mechanisms that could malfunction due to extreme temperature. When the Window Wall closes, its panels interlock into one another creating an airtight compression seal. This makes it durable and energy-efficient no matter whether it’s a summer heatwave or a winter cold snap.
What’s more, our Window Wall features our built-in retractable solar and thermal blind technology. This innovation improves the product’s energy efficiency by up to 40%. With our retractable blind technology, homeowners are now able to completely control how much light, heat or cold they want in their space.
3. These Units Bring a Modern Touch to a Classic Cottage
The Window Wall is renowned for its superior efficiency and durability. As such, it’s the perfect option for Canadian cottagers looking to brighten or modernize their lakeside retreats. With panoramic glass and thin modern frames, they allow you to take in the beautiful natural surroundings from the inside of the cottage-like never before.
The Window Wall Comes in Various Styles to Suit Your Needs
The 50ft Window Wall is certainly spectacular. That said, its size can often be prohibitive to many homeowners based on the size or specifications of their homes. That’s why we custom design the Window Wall to suit any window or door opening. Whether it’s a full-sized bifold door or our modern take on the traditional french door, our styles will suit any home. And no matter which style you go with, every Window Wall comes with the same patented, innovative features.
4. Turn Traditional Windows into Amazing Window Walls
This installation shows how a Window Wall can serve the same function as a traditional window with a distinctive twist. As a window, the Window Wall is designed with two panels to mimic the functionality of a European casement. When the window is open there is no middle mullion obstructing views. This design makes it the perfect option to elevate and modernize a traditional sunroom.
