Kalwall’s translucent fiberglass panel systems have numerous advantages. To start, they offer diffused, balanced daylight, providing measurable glare-free daylight that blocks harmful UV-A and UV-B rays, while letting the full spectrum of visible light inside the given space. Due to the structural sandwiched fiberglass construction, these panels require less structural support since they can largely support their own weight. This often means that less structure, time, and construction are required to create an insulated daylighting feature in an existing or newly constructed building. Pairing Kalwall’s translucent panels with Structures Unlimited Inc.’s pre-engineered, prefinished, light weight aluminum box beam support systems can also streamline the application for a fully integrated canopy, skylight or clear span system from curb or footing up.
Due to the materials used, fiberglass sandwich panels are also much lighter than other glazing products. This makes installation much faster and puts less stress on the building. Despite their relatively light weight and large panel sizes, the thermal performance options are also particularly great at insulating buildings. Thermally broken panels with insulation values up to R-20 / 0.05U and 20% light transmission are available. Keeping heat in or out of a building directly correlates with energy savings, HVAC heating and cooling loads, and overall wellness of people inside the building.
These panel systems are frequently used for framed openings, walls, skylights, canopies, pre-engineered skyroofs, and clearspan systems. The panels can also be made in just about any shape with multiple finish and grid pattern offerings, meaning you don’t have to settle for a basic look. If a more eye-catching design is what you had in mind, please reach out with your vision and we can help fine-tune to make it a long-lasting feature of the building.
