Luminous Kalwall Lets the Sunshine In
|Subscribe to FREE newsletter||Feb 20, 2012|
In the 1970s a new building material gained traction in the marketplace. This material had all of the advantages of a skylight while being superior to skylights in energy efficiency and structure. It's no wonder that many architects started specifying Kalwall where the only option had been a glass or plastic product.
Kalwall, which was actually developed in the '50s, is a fiberglass-reinforced translucent sandwich panel. Though initially used for commercial and institutional buildings, Kalwall has become increasing popular for homes. This is especially true for an entire, luminous ceiling or where light is desired but privacy must be maintained.
Kalwall® is the world leader in advanced technology daylighting. High-performance translucent fenestration systems with energy-efficient advancements, including R-20 (0.5 U-value) with Nanogel® and other options, which surpass all other technologies. Either as part or all of the walls or roof of any building – or even as an entire, freestanding structure – Kalwall provides a more predictable, better quality, usable natural light with superior energy efficiency. An exclusive Daylight Modeling service allows you to consider the specific impact of daylighting as you explore the impact of design variations and options to achieve the desired lighting levels. No other service allows you to accurately judge the results of your design in a highly accurate and informative simulation.
