More about this product

Kalwall is a translucent, structural sandwich panel which uses prismatic glass fibers embedded in the panels face sheets. The glass prisms refract sunlight to provide a balanced, diffuse wash of glare-free light. During the manufacturing process, panels are fitted with translucent insulation to reduce solar heat gains. Unlike glass, the low maintenance panels self-clean with natural rainfall.

Kalwall walkways protect from the elements, and create comfortable, practical transitions between buildings, filling an enclosed space with balanced daylight. They providing security to occupants from being seen from outside the structure. Kalwall walkways have the structural integrity to stand up to hurricane-force winds, high snow loads and the most demanding code requirements.
