Kalwall Corporation

Translucent daylighting systems - structures and large systems

  • Taking Kalwall sandwich panel technology to another dimension... the marriage of aluminum box beams and Kalwall panels into a monolithic, structural space enclosure.

  • Variety of designs, unequaled by any other daylighting system.

  • Design control, fabrication, delivery and complete installation for the ultimate in single-source responsibility!

  • Installations completed in weeks - not months - due to component standardizations and CAD technology.

  • Thermal break technology for the ultimate condensation control.

  • LEED® contribution.

  • Kalwall 100 panels are 4" (100mm) thick for applications requiring even more structural integrity. U-values from 0.08 to 0.15 BTU/(hr/ft²/ºF) or 0.45 to 0.85 W/m²K (R-13 to R-6.16).

  • Super-insulating, light-transmitting Kalwall+ Nanogel® infilled with translucent aerogel for R-20, panel U-value of 0.05 BTU/(hr/ft²/ºF) or 0.30 W/m²K with 20% light transmission.

  • Special application and national building code-compliant. Following are just a few of the codes and standards applying to Kalwall Translucent Structures and Large Systems:
    • Explosion Venting Panels designed and manufactured to FM 4440 standards
