Ensure Visual Comfort
Kalwall’s Prismatic Glass Fibers
= Diffuse Light
= Usable Light

Diffuse light eliminates glare, hotspots and high contrast ratios to provide ideal visual comfort for occupants.

 

+

See Things Clearly
Kalwall delivers full-spectrum light, creating perfect color rendition while blocking harmful UV-A and UV-B rays.

Kalwall safeguards artwork from the ravages of light and heat and allows you to see the art’s true colors and details as intended for years to come.

+

Increase Retail Sales
Under proper daylighting, patrons browse longer and purchase more. It’s proven that daylighting increases retail sales up to 40%.

Kalwall’s superior thermal properties and unrivaled solar heat gain control allow for daylit spaces that people want to congregate in, as opposed to glass skylights or facades, which can create a glare-filled hotbox.

+

Improve Productivity + Performance
People thrive under daylight.

All building occupants benefit from improved mood, alertness and increased productivity.

A healthier atmosphere boosts academic and workforce performance, with less absenteeism and higher staff retention.

+

Be Sustainable
Daylighting is the foundation of sustainable design. Treat your building as a luminaire by harvesting sunlight to achieve daylight autonomy, reducing the need for artificial light and complex and expensive control systems.

Kalwall helps you earn LEED™ and WELL points while meeting stringent energy codes and reducing your building’s carbon footprint.

+

Provide Beneficial Blue Light
Kalwall delivers vital blue light during the day. Blue light acts as a short-term alertness stimulant and reinforces natural circadian rhythms.

Blue light also affects metabolic and hormonal functions, ultimately helping to provide a calm, focused mindset and can improve sleep.

Our modeling service offers analysis to help you understand blue light within your space.

+

Deliver Healing Effects
The positive influences of daylight lead to increased vitality and enriched alertness.

This can also provide improved healthcare outcomes, with less pain and medication, fewer hospital stays and decreased patient stress level.

+

Promote Growth
Connect your building occupants with the outdoors! The transmission of usable natural light maximizes photosynthesis, allowing you to incorporate botanical elements into any design.

Natural daylight is perfect for zoo and aviary enclosures, as well.
