Brewery Folding Doors

Sleek ActivWall aluminum folding doors add versatility to this brewery and special events venue in South Carolina.

New Realm is an American craft brewery and distillery that started in 2016 with a flagship brewery and restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia. The business brews innovative beers based on tradition, and its strong customer following has enabled New Realm to expand to three additional locations in Savannah, Charleston, and Virginia Beach. 

Guests to New Realm’s Charleston, South Carolina location enjoy incredible flavors from the wood-fired kitchen and their 27 taps that are constantly pouring New Realm’s famous IPAs, pilsners, and small-batch beers crafted by Brewmaster Mitch Steele.

The Charleston location has three private dining areas for special events and a dedicated events coordinator to assist hosts. In their large indoor area, called The Music Room, designers used two ActivWall Horizontal Door units to create movable partition walls for the versatile event space. 

New Realm Brewery

The Music Room is a spacious area with a 30′ ceiling, and it can accommodate 150 guests. Features include a stage, a laser projector, and a 165″ screen. The two ActivWall doors, paired with large roll-up panels, allow the space to be configured as an open, semi-private, or private room, depending on the type of event being hosted. 

The first ActivWall Horizontal Folding Door is a three-panel unit and measures approximately 123″ wide by 95″ high. The second unit has two panels and measures about 75″ wide by 95″ high. Both units have aluminum frames finished in a flat black powder coat and 1/4″ clear tempered safety glass. They are top-hung and feature two-point locking handles for securing the spaces. 

ActivWall Horizontal Folding Walls, Windows, and Doors can be utilized in both commercial and residential settings as well as either exterior or interior.

Our superior American engineered hinges and motion hardware allow for the smooth operation of units, and thermally broken aluminum and dual-paned low-E glass make the AL62-HF extremely energy efficient.

Custom sizes, configurations, glass, and multiple sill options are available along with SDL (simulated divided lites or grilles) and integrated panic hardware (for commercial applications). There is also a floor-mounted system for applications where header weight support is problematic.

Taco Bell Cantina

The Taco Bell Cantina in Danville, California has elevated its dining experience beyond just fast food. The chain’s new “Cantina” concept features an urban restaurant design, open kitchen, custom menu with shareable appetizers and alcoholic beverages. 

The renovation was led by Infinity AP of Waveland, Mississippi and First Street Development of Sonoma, California who added a welcoming outdoor dining area with cozy seating, fire pits, outdoor lawn games, and large screens for sporting events.

We are thrilled to be part of this location as two ActivWall Gas Strut Windows were used in the restaurant design. The 57″ wide by 71″ high aluminum units connect the bar inside to the outdoor dining area and open up to create an outdoor bar where guests can enjoy beer, wine, sangria, and twisted Freezes.

To coordinate with other commercial windows used in this Taco Bell Cantina design, the team at Infinity AP chose a dark bronze anodized finish with insulated glass and simulated divided lites (SDL). 

Every Gas Strut Window by ActivWall is custom-manufactured for our clients and made in America. The windows are also available for both commercial and residential use. Contact us today for a free quote and learn how ActivWall can help open up your space.

Franklin Motors Beer Garden

Franklin Motors Beer Garden

When the owners of Franklin Motors Beer Garden and Roquette began planning designs for a new two-story beer garden with a food truck in the college town of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, they knew that they wanted a pass-through window at the bar for serving guests. 

They turned to Coastal Window & Door of Wilmington to purchase a custom-built ActivWall Gas Strut Window. The unit measures 62.75″ wide by 36″ high and is finished in a red powder coat that coordinates with an eclectic mix of vintage automotive and industrial decor found throughout the venue. 

For example, they mounted the beer taps on a vintage Gulf Oil barrel just inside the window for a quirky yet functional pouring station.

The custom-made ActivWall window opens up and out 90 degrees on gas struts to create a serving bar. The window can be closed with a push from the outside or the inside using the optional ActivWall Pull Hook. 

Carrie Brogren, founder of the Chapel Hill Carrboro Foodies, visited Franklin Motors during their soft-opening. 

She said, “It’s such a great space! Indoors, outdoors, downstairs, upstairs, sitting, standing – this place has got it all! It’s obvious that a lot of time and effort went into the layout and design. They’ve got beer, wine, cocktails, and they even plan to offer Prosecco on tap (not available just yet, but will be soon).”

Upstairs, above the ActivWall Gas Strut Window, patrons have various seating options surrounded by colorful flowers, unique industrial elements, and bistro lights. 

Roquette is a permanent food truck on-site and serves lunch and dinner. Carrie said, “We really enjoyed the food…the menu is casual but fresh and tasty. The ceviche was my favorite, but the sliders were a close second, and I like that you can mix and match flavors in sets of threes (we got cheeseburger, veggie, and fish).”

ActivWall products are custom made for commercial or residential use and can be finished in any color. Contact us today to get a quote for your unique space.

Virgin Hotel Rooftop Bar Gas Strut Windows - Dallas, TX

When the architect for the new Virgin Hotel in Dallas, Texas, drew four 90-degree awning windows, there was no specific product attached to those drawings. That’s when ActivWall entered the picture and was able to craft these stunning Gas Strut windows in Virgin brand red to complete the kitchen/serving area of their signature rooftop bar

The windows can be opened from the inside with a gentle push and can be closed using ActivWall’s optional pull hook. 

They add a colorful pop of interest to this venue.

Restaurant facade installed at College Inn Restaurant in Charlottesville, Virginia

This facade was installed at College Inn, a restaurant at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. The restaurant has been open for over 60 years, however they recently renovated the building, which included adding some ActivWall horizontal folding doors. The restaurant is popular with college students, with Italian and Greek dishes, sandwiches, and more.

These doors are thermally broken aluminum, with a white powder coat finish that matches the exterior. They allow for easy indoor/outdoor dining. They also seal tightly to keep the heat or cold out, depending on the season.
