Kalwall's Clearspan Skyroofs and Structures High-Performance Translucent Daylighting Systems

The sky is the limit when lightweight panel systems combine with aluminum box beams to form a total composite system, pre-engineered and delivered from a single-source. Monolithic, structural enclosures with clearspans of over 100 feet. Systems can be canopies, monumental skylights or entire free-standing buildings with aluminum structures by our strategic partner Structures Unlimited, Inc.


  • Taking the Kalwall sandwich panel technology to another dimension… the marriage of aluminum box beams and Kalwall panels into a monolithic, highly engineered, structural space enclosure.

  • Variety of designs, unequaled by any other daylighting system.

  • Design control, fabrication, delivery and complete installation for the ultimate in single-source responsibility!

  • Installations competed in weeks — not months — due to component standardizations and design technology.

  • Complete buildings, including Pool Enclosures, featuring non-corrosion and moisture resistance built in.

  • Thermal-break technology for the ultimate condensation control.

  • LEED® contribution.

  • Kalwall 100TM flat panels are 4" (100mm) thick for applications requiring even more structural integrity. U-values from 0.08 to 0.15 Btu/hr/ft2/°F (0.30 W/m2K), R-13 to R-6.

  • Super-insulating, light-transmitting Kalwall+ Lumira® aerogel are panels infilled with the latest iteration of this space-age super insulating translucent aerogel from R-20 panel with U-value of 0.05 Btu/hr/ft2/°F (0.30 W/m2K) with 20% light transmission.

  • Special application and national building code-compliant. Following are just a few of the codes and standards applying to some Kalwall Translucent Clearspan and Skyroof Systems:

    • ASTM E1886 and E1996 Hurricane Standards, including flying debris cannon test per the Florida Building Code.
    • ASTM E331 Water Penetration.
    • ASTM E283-91 Air Leakage.
    • ASTM E330-90 Structural Performance.
    • ICC-ES AC 177 compliant.
    • Seismic code and OSHA compliant.
    • Optional extra-high impact faces withstand extraordinary impact forces in accordance with UL 972 standards.
    • A thermoset FRP/aluminum composite that will not melt, Kalwall panels have many optional fire reaction capabilities.
