About Pre-engineered Skyroofs

Pre-engineered Skyroofs

Kalwall offers a wide range of pre-engineered skyroofs including: shed Roofs, ridge Roofs, pyramids, barrel vaults, low-profile vaults. Our panels are so lightweight compared to glass, at less than 3 lbs/ft2, support framing requirements are minimized. Only thrust-bearing curbs designed to accommodate local live, snow and wind load designs are required. Clearspans up to 24′ are possible, depending on load and slope, without additional support framing. Our rugged skylights are all mansafe and OSHA fall thru compliant, meaning no safety cages required, another cost savings. Centerline, self-supporting ridge skylights with 20°, 27°, 33°, or 45° slope to 24′. Our Kalcurve® 180° and low-profile 90° come in one foot curb width increments.

Picture 1: A self supporting ridge roof is always a good solution for clear spans up to +/-20’ wide depending on design criteria. In theory, there’s almost no limit to the length of these skyroofs. Standard panel modules are 4’ and 5’. Custom panel widths are available in any size up to 5 feet.

Daylight Modeling Services
Daylighting is the practice of using controlled natural light to illuminate a space. It is part science and part art. The end result is a space that minimizes the use of artificial lighting, reduces carbon emissions and positively affects the performance, mood and well being of the occupants. Daylight modeling brings science into the art of daylighting. It removes the design mystery and reveals the pattern of daylight on any building through software and physical scale modeling. Architects around the world use our complimentary service to demonstrate the impact of their daylighting design options with Kalwall® translucent sandwich panels to achieve the ultimate in balanced, glare-free, Museum-quality DaylightingTM. Our service helps to document your contributions to Net Zero, BREEAM® and LEED®objectives.
