Translucent daylighting systems - wall panels

Kalwall Walls Rains High SchoolView our Guide to Designing Energy-Saving, Translucent Wall Systems

  • Rapidly and economically enclose space - totally pre-finished when in place.

  • Epitomizes the original Kalwall translucent sandwich panel concept.

  • Controlled, natural daylight combined with finely tuned thermal and solar controls… Museum-Quality Daylighting.

  • May be either flat or curved sandwich panels.

  • Specialty wall systems for human safety: blast, hurricane, explosion, fire. See our Explosion Venting Panel System flyer.

  • Most highly insulating, light-transmitting system in the world.

  • Structural Sandwich Panels up to 5' x 20' (1.5m x 6m), 2-3/4" (70mm) or 4" (100mm) thick are secured to building with simple, Clamp-tite aluminum extrusions. System seals panel/panel and building, allowing for expansion/contraction and proper weepage to channel any moisture to building exterior.

  • LEED® contribution.

  • Kalwall 100 are 4" (100mm) thick panels 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 Wall Panel Systems:
    • Explosion Venting Panels designed and manufactured to FM 4440 standards
    • ASTM E 1886 and E1996 Hurricane Standards, including flying debris cannon test promulgated originally in the Florida Building Code
    • ASTM E331 Water Penetration
    • ASTM E283-91 Air Leakage
    • ASTM E330-90 Structural Performance
    • Designed in accordance with ICC-ES, ASCE 7 methods and approved to the latest FM Standard 4881 for Exterior Wall Systems
    • Seismic codes
    • Optional extra-high impact faces withstand extraordinary impact forces in accordance with UL 972 standards
    • A thermoset FRP/aluminum composite that will not melt, Kalwall panels have many optional fire reaction capabilities.
  • Complies with DoD and GSA UFC 4-010-01 Blast-Resistant Construction.
