Kalwall Revolutionizes Energy Saving Daylighting Systems

Cabot Corporation : 16 April, 2004  (New Product)
Nanogel aerogel, the light solid insulating material, is now available with Kalwall translucent panels. The benefits of this extraordinary product are unique insulating and energy-saving properties combined with daylighting.
Kalwall Plus with Nanogel , is a new outstanding insulating system that transmits 'museum quality' daylight with extremely low thermal conductivity and a decrease in sound transmission. Moreover, because the Nanogel material is hydrophobic, it does not absorb moisture and maintains stable performance over the productís working life.

Kalwall Plus with Nanogel is most suitable for translucent walls or roofing, where enhanced daylighting is required together with high levels of energy saving. With an achievable panel U value of 0.28 W/m2K, the system can be as energy efficient as a solid wall. This means it can be used to introduce daylighting through surfaces that would normally be opaque.

Nanogel translucent aerogel, a translucent granular form of silica aerogel comprising 95% air originally designed for use in the science and aerospace industries, is now available only from Cabot Corporation. Using it inside the Kalwall panel results in a remarkable enhanced performance quite unlike any other translucent product. Kalwall skylights with Nanogel aerogel have been named one of the ten new green building products of recent years.

Kalwall Plus with Nanogel diffuses natural light without glare, shadows or hotspots. Unlike glass, it provides privacy and eliminates any need for blinds and curtains. Because it resists solar energy, air-conditioning costs can be reduced without the need for external shading devices. With increased natural daylight, energy-consuming artificial lighting is also dramatically reduced.

Information about Kalwall Plus with Nanogel is available from Kalwall Corporation, Bruce Keller (Tel: +1 603 627 3861)
