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. Kalwall low-maintenance translucent canopies are a smart investment. Leaves and bird debris remain unseen from below, and the diffuse light and low contrast ratios they provide is a safety feature for people in transit.

At night, the canopies shine with a soft glow from nearby artificial lighting. During the day Kalwall provides full-spectrum, natural visible light, without distorting color rendition. During the manufacturing process, panels are fitted with translucent insulation to reduce solar heat gains. The economical lightweight panels weigh 1/3 less than glass, meaning less substructure, and longer spans.
