W Hotel Washington
He sat forward in his chair while sipping his Scotch… wishing he could move beyond the glass wall to hear the city streets and drink in the night air.
This is where you level up.

Panora is Different!
Panora uses vertical retraction to move glass panels up and down. For glass wall and glass door applications, the panels open in the up position permitting passage underneath. For window walls, Panora opens by consolidating panels in the down position, creating a built-in balustrade. In either case, Panora creates an opening of 66% to 75% of the rough opening (depending on number of panels used). This equates to 100% of the truly useable space.
Integration Options: Panora is a versatile product. Anywhere you can imagine a glass wall, you may also imagine the advantages of an operable or retractable wall. Windows are commonplace. But retractable windows are distinct. Standard doors open and close without a glance but a retractable glass door will “raise” the eyebrows. In fact, Panora is appropriate anywhere that requires distinctive and operable architectural solutions. It is versatile in sizing, in finishes, and in the number of panels used. Panora is the only retractable glass window, door, or wall system that can integrate both shades and screens.
