NanaWall Systems, a leader in opening glass wall technology, introduces a folding door system featuring custom-crafted frames of Lamboo laminated bamboo. The Energy Star-Certified NanaWall folding door system incorporates an ecologically responsible wood-alternative material.
Lamboo laminated bamboo is introduced at the American Institute of Architects Convention May 12-14 in New Orleans.
NanaWall Systems has achieved Energy Star ratings and Dade County Hurricane Certification. NanaWall also offers Triple Glazing and OrniluxBird Protection Glass.
“We chose Lamboo because our customers requested more ecologically responsible material to use in LEEDcertified projects,” says Ebrahim Nana, president of NanaWall Systems. “We already offer FSC wood but Lamboo takes the concept one step further and is recognized as a rapidly renewable resource by the U.S. Green Building Council.”
Lamboo products meet criteria for 2011 “CALGreen” A4.405.4 (Use of building materials from renewable sources) and contribute to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification under MR Credit 6 - Rapidly renewable materials, IEQ Credit 4.4 - Low-emitting materials; ID Credit 1 - Innovation in Design (Environmentally Preferable Material), and ID Credit 2 - Innovation in Design (Life Cycle Assessment / Environmental Impact).
Lamboo is available with NanaWall’s WD65 wood-framed system and WA67 aluminum-clad wood-framed system.
Lamboo is an engineered bamboo product with three grain and two color choices available. It is not only structurally stable but aesthetically pleasing. The production process uses 15 percent less embodied energy than that of engineered wood and 300 percent less embodied energy than aluminum and steel. Lamboo on average is 20 percent more stable than wood in moisture and temperature changes, ten times stronger than wood in tension and three times stronger mechanically. Bamboo sequesters 35 percent more carbon than its tree counterparts and also produces 30 percent more oxygen than a like-sized timber forest area.
