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.
Wall systems are useful for facade applications that do not need to unitize fixed or operable glazing or louvers with translucent panels. Kalwall structural sandwich panels can be either flat or curved. Panels are available in different thicknesses and may be customized to accommodate a variety of head and sill conditions. Typical design configurations include punched openings, single-story, and multi-story applications.
