Visual Blog: Kalwall in the Transportation Market

September 15, 2017

This visual blog highlights how architects incorporate Kalwall® as a centerpiece in projects across a wide range of industries.

Buckeye-Woodhill Rapid Transit Station

Cleveland, Ohio, U.S.A.

The canopy covering the platform area for waiting passengers adds a backlit feature at night to define the space and acts as a waypoint for travelers.

Translink

Belfast, Northern Ireland

The train depot utilizes energy efficient, balanced daylighting and low contrast ratios for high visual acuity for maintenance crews working on the resting trains.

Glasgow International Airport

Glasgow, Scotland

Passenger safety and security was at the heart of the design goal for this airport terminal, which was the target of a horrific car bombing in 2007. Kalwall was specifically called for in the new terminal design because of its anti-terrorism force protection/blast resistance.

Southbend Regional Airport

South Bend, Indiana, U.S.A.

The large Skyroof® is a signature feature of the airport terminal. In addition to superb solar heat gain control, the Skyroof bathes the grand hall in diffuse usable light and offers low maintenance and easy cleaning, in addition to masking rooftop debris and bird droppings that are more visible on glass.

Raleigh-Durham International Airport

Morrisville, North Carolina, U.S.A.

The nationally-renowned architectural firm of Clark Nexsen won several awards for its Terminal 1 renovation. A re-clad and re-imagined landside building elevation features Kalwall panels and provides a light-filled interior space that not only provides privacy, but gives off a soft glowing lantern effect at night that enhances the airport landscape.
