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 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.
Using lightweight Kalwall composite panel technology with low maintenance, corrosion, and moisture resistant aluminum box beams means that monumental clearspan™ skylights and structures with spans in excess of 100 feet can be produced. The leaders in large-scale daylighting systems, Structures Unlimited, Inc., is a strategic partner of Kalwall, They offer design control, fabrication, delivery and complete installation with single source responsibility.
