Translucent Walls & Windows

EXTECH Pioneers Natural Daylighting

EXTECH's translucent walls offer soft, diffused natural lighting. Made with cellular polycarbonate, the translucent wall panel systems insulate better and are a more cost-effective alternative to a conventional glass wall. These industrial strength windows are impact resistant and low maintenance. The panels do not require cleaning as often as glass walls. Most of the panels for these systems snap together at the side joints (see technical pages for details). Panel manufacturers warrant these products for 10 years.
