About Kalwall

Kalwall is the most highly insulating diffuse light transmitting system available. Kalwall translucent sandwich panels are a composite of fiberglass face sheets permanently bonded to an aluminum or thermally broken interlocked grid core.

Kalwall is an ideal severe climate material. In desert climates with intense sunlight and extreme variations of temperature, Kalwall controls solar heat gain to reduce air conditioning requirements while providing excellent insulating performance for severe winter and nighttime cold. Kalwall with Nanogel® provides U.05/R20 insulating performance while offering exceptional light transmitting qualities. Kalwall's optional 4" thick system offer superior insulating performance (up to U.08/R12.5) and an STC rating that meets "Leed for Schools" requirement.

Kalwall panels are custom fabricated according to the exact dimensions and requirements of each project. Panels can be flat or curved providing unlimited design options for walls and roofs.
