See How Kalwall Removable Skylights Can Bring Your Next Project to Life.
Skylights have the remarkable ability to transform ordinary places into extraordinary spaces that promote increased productivity and well-being for building occupants. Kalwall’s innovative solution takes this concept one step further for large spaces with specific lighting needs: removable skylights. These translucent roof panels diffuse perfect daylight deep into spaces while maximizing thermal performance and minimizing glare. Better yet, their lightweight property simplifies installation and replacement, offering a hassle-free solution for your project.
The Kalwall Difference
Kalwall’s removable skylights outperform both glass and polycarbonate in every aspect, thanks to the use of fiberglass-reinforced polymer (FRP). This helps to create bright, comfortable spaces for building occupants while enhancing visual acuity, productivity and more. With Kalwall, you’ll get best-in-industry thermal performance and solar heat gain control + museum-quality daylighting™, all wrapped up into a panel that is low maintenance and rugged enough to handle extreme weather.
Read on for eight reasons why introducing Kalwall removable skylights into your space can help you take any project to the next level.
- Removal + Replacement Just Got Easier
Picture this: You’ve just finished creating your dream building, only to now have to worry about how you’re going to get oversized furniture or equipment inside. With removable skylights from Kalwall, this concern is a thing of the past. Because our translucent panels are designed to be lightweight and rugged, they can easily be lifted, opening roof space to install large equipment within your facility. When you’re done, you can easily put them back into place—without sacrificing the weatherproof seal or structural stability of your building envelope.
- Where Lightweight Meets Strength + Durability
Our translucent panels may be lightweight, but they don’t lack for strength. Though only 2 pounds per square foot, they’re exceptionally strong. They are thermoset and able to withstand hurricane-force winds and wind-borne debris. Plus, they are highly resistant to corrosion, weathering and chemicals, making them an excellent choice for wet spaces such as natatoriums or other harsh environments.
Installation is made even easier knowing the panels in our removable skylights are man-safe, shatterproof and impact-resistant, simplifying roof maintenance and eliminating the need for additional safety measures, such as guardrail installation.
- Monumental Toplighting That Actually Works
We have long been known for our perfect daylighting that creates strikingly beautiful spaces while enhancing the health and well-being of building occupants. And with monumental toplighting from Kalwall, you can turn basic commercial skylights into high-performance, architectural features that will leave a lasting impression, from the inside out.
- Good for You + the Planet
When it comes to thermal performance, Kalwall translucent panels are best-in-industry. This means maintaining stable indoor temperatures in all climates while reducing heating and cooling costs has never been easier. The panels in our removable skylights create soft, even illumination that minimizes the need for artificial lighting, promotes energy savings and enables greenery to thrive.
- Maintenance You Can Manage
No time to worry about maintenance? No problem. Our removable skylights require minimal upkeep. Due to the nature of our translucent panels, they don’t degrade, are graffiti-resistant and are self-cleaning with regular rainfall.
- Endless Options for Customization
If you’re looking to add a little flair to your space, Kalwall’s removable commercial skylights come in various colors, finishes, shapes and sizes, offering design flexibility and aesthetic customization. Typical geometries include pyramids, geo-roofs® and ridge roofs. Standard or custom-colored Kalwall corrosion-resistant finishes for aluminum components are also available to match your building’s design.
- Code Requirements = Met
Our panels meet fire-related code requirements and hold a Class A Burning Brand rating, providing excellent fire protection. While polycarbonate panels rain droplets in a fire and glass can’t withstand high temperatures, our panels’ thermoset FRP/aluminum composite will not melt.
No matter your need, our skylights are tailor-made to your building’s specifications and boast the fastest lead times among our product offerings. Ordering removable skylights is easy: Simply select the facesheet color, u-value preference, standard curb size and finish color, and we’ll take care of the rest.
