The individual glass panels completely disappear. The horizontally sliding walls are therefore ideal as partition walls or commercial fronts.
How much do horizontal sliding walls cost?
The cost of horizontal sliding walls are made on a per square foot basis. The cost per square foot is $25 to $100. A typical wall is $1000 to $3000, not including installation.
Horizontal vs Folding Glass Walls
