More about this product

When Carolina Ale House was designing the Glenwood avenue location, they planned the third-level patio using SolaGlide Skylight retractable roof and Panora-View vertical windows from Libart. The 3rd floor open air patio is the first motorized, vertically retractable window installation of its kind in North America.

There are three adjustable, motorized, moving parts in the project: Skylights, Windows and Shades. Each component is adjustable to give access to fresh air, sunlight, sound control and protection from the elements.

  • Skylights
    Three of the roof panels can be opened by turning a key to allow sunlight or moonlight to enter the premisis.
    Design Single Pitch, 4-panel SolaGlide skylight retractable roof system
    Retraction 75% opening up (3 panels retract under the 4th fixed panel under the ridge)
    Operation Motorized with wall mounted momentary switch for adjustable open/close
    Glazing Triple wall, 16 mm Solar Control Gray Polycarbonate
    Frame Custom color powder coated aluminium per spec AMMA 2604
  • Windows
    As the Libart Panora-View vertical windows open from the top, a half-wall is created for safety which allows uninterupted views.
    Design 3-panel Panora-View retractable windows in sizes s 9’x9’ and 13’x9’
    Retraction 2/3 opening top down to a fixed panel glass railings
    Operation Motorized with wall mounted momentary switch for adjustable open/close
    Glazing 1-1/4” insulated and laminated safety glass
    Frame Powder coated, thermally broken safety glass
  • Solar Shades
    Stoett solar shades were added that can be used independently to reduce glare whenever needed.

The Panora-View window system was used instead of the originally specified bi-fold doors. Whereas garage doors would require an additional railing for safety, the Panora-View vertical windows retract down to form a glass wall. The downward vertical retracting windows provide a full outside view when closed as well as the desired window opening.
