SoleraWall

SoleraWall™ is a unique innovation, creating walls of highly insulated, light diffusing glass wall panels. These panels have the same properties as existing Solera® R5 to R18 insulated glass units, but are self-supporting and frame-less. The support is provided by the internal spacer. These panels are designed to be attached directly to the primary structure of the building, no secondary support required. They can be stacked one on top of the other and side by side without visible fasteners or capping. The result is an innovative fenestration system with significantly improved thermal performance, maximum control of illumination potential, reduced solar heat gain. All at a lower installed cost than traditional captured systems such as curtain wall, window wall or storefront.
