Canopies

Our low maintenance translucent canopies are a smart investment. Leaves and bird debris remain unseen from below, and the diffuse light and low contrast ratios they provide is a safety feature for people in transit. At night, our canopies also shine, as they glow softly from nearby artificial lighting, and highlight points of interest, such as building entrances. Our economical lightweight panels weigh 1/3 less than glass, meaning less sub structure, and longer spans.

Daylight Modeling

Daylighting is the practice of using controlled natural light to illuminate a space. It is part science and part art. The end result is a space that minimizes the use of artificial lighting, reduces carbon emissions and positively affects the performance, mood and well being of the occupants. Daylight modeling brings science into the art of daylighting. It removes the design mystery and reveals the pattern of daylight on any building through software and physical scale modeling.

Architects around the world use our complimentary service to demonstrate the impact of their daylighting design options with Kalwall® translucent sandwich panels to achieve the ultimate in balanced, glare-free, Museum-quality Daylighting™. Our service helps to document your contributions to Net Zero, BREEAM® and LEED®objectives.

AMOEBA WALL PROJECT FEATURING KALWALL® EARNS MORE AWARDS - March 2017

MANCHESTER, NH - Inspired by the fluid movement of the amoeba cell, a design team from the MIT Media Lab in Boston, Mass., created the Amoeba Wall Dynamical Space Reconfiguration Tool for a constantly changing work environment.

Kalwall translucent sandwich panels were an essential feature of the design, giving the wall structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. The combination of beauty and flexibility earned the project three awards, including a prestigious Golden A Design, at the A Design Award and Competition.

The A Design Award and Competition is billed as the world's largest design competition for designers, innovators and companies.

Amoeba Wall was honored with the Golden A' Design Award for Lighting Products and Lighting Projects Design, as well as two Silver A' Design Awards for the Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design category, as well as the Arts, Crafts and Ready-Made Design category.

The wall was originally created for The Tomorrow's Workplace 2016 design competition, challenging teams of designers to define how will offices enable workers to be the best they can be?

Honghao Deng, the lead designer of the MIT Media Lab project, praised Kalwall panels and the role they played in the design of the Amoeba Wall.

The Kalwall daylighting panel is not only beautiful and has great light diffusion, but is also amazingly easy to deal with, Deng said It's incredibly lightweight and structurally sound.

The transformable wall employs robotics technology to create a hyper-efficient, dynamically reconfigurable structure. The innovative robotics and unmatched quality of Kalwall panels combine to create a flexible and lightweight piece of architecture that accommodates a wide range of activities in a small space.

SUPERMATERIAL: KALWALL DAYLIGHTING TECHNOLOGY RECOGNIZED INTERNATIONALLY

Kalwall Translucent Sandwich Panels Featured at SuperMaterials Exhibit in London

MANCHESTER, N.H.- Kalwall® translucent sandwich panels are a featured product at a two-month long exhibit in London being hosted by the Built Environment Trust.

The SuperMaterials exhibit, which began February 1 at the London Building Centre and concludes April 27, highlights how scientific developments have transformed the way we build.

The series of exhibits aims to inform how materials and technology are changing the future of construction, and explore how the application of raw materials influences the constant evolution of architecture. Dubbed the next industrial revolution by The Building Centre, this evolving phase has a sharp focus on stronger, lighter, thinner and biodegradable products.

Robert Keller's Kalwall panels may have been introduced in 1955 in New Hampshire, but they have stood the test of time as a truly revolutionary development that remains a key feature in projects around the world.

KALWALL® Featured in Winning 2017 RIBA London Award Project

May 30, 2017
MANCHESTER, NH - The architects of London's remodeled West Croydon Bus Station were looking for a way to give the busy transport station a brighter and more aesthetically appealing look when it began its remodeling project two years ago.

The introduction of Kalwall translucent sandwich panels for the station's canopy helped achieve that goal. And, in the process, earned the project one of England's highest honors in architectural design.

Transport for London (TfL)'s in-house design team was recently presented a 2017 RIBA Regional Award by the Royal Institute of British Architects and TfL architect Martin Eriksson won a 2017 RIBA London Project Architect of the Year Award.

RIBA Awards aim to celebrate the best architecture in the UK and around the world. London has over 12,000 RIBA members and 1,000 chartered practices. Regional winners are eligible for the RIBA National Award for architectural excellence.

In jury comments, the station is described as a charming and creative building. Kalwall panels not only provided an aesthetic beauty, but their lightweight properties factored into the design of the building. The ability to eliminate shadows, hotspots and glare made Kalwall preferable to traditional glazing. Additionally, the translucent panels create an ethereal glow at night, making it a beacon for travelers.

The ability to reduce maintenance expenditures also made Kalwall a great choice. Soil and detritus are less obvious on Kalwall panels than on glass, and cleaning is much simpler because access scaffolding is not required and maintenance staff can safely walk across its surface.

Designed by Transport for London's in-house team of architects and predominantly featuring Kalwall translucent sandwich panels, the project was shortlisted by the Royal Institute of British Architects for a 2017 RIBA London Regional Award.

The West Croydon Bus Station was one of 85 buildings to make the cut from among 215 entries. The winning entry will be announced on Monday, May 22. Regional winners will be eligible for the RIBA National Award for architectural excellence.

2015 Best Project winner - Mattabassett District's Water Pollution Control Facility, Cromwell, CT

CREATING ANOTHER AWARD-WINNING 'ENVIRONMENT'
Structures Unlimited Inc. Part of Best Project Award-Winner in Water/Environment Category

BOW, NH - The project to upgrade the Mattabassett District's Water Pollution Control Facility in Cromwell, CT, featuring two designs by Structures Unlimited Inc., was recognized by Engineering News-Record New England as a 2015 Best Project winner.

SUI supplied the new main building, a 95' 11" wide x 48' 6" long center ridge building with open-air center passage. The Bow, NH company also supplied a shed roof that is 30' 7/8" by 88' 4 1/2".

The project, constructed to provide nitrogen treatment to meet new state and federal standards, is one of the biggest WPCF upgrades in the country. The Mattabassett District WPCF processes 12 to 21 million gallons of wastewater from the towns of New Britain, Berlin, Cromwell, Middletown, Newington, Rocky Hill and Farmington, discharging the clean water into the Connecticut River.

The project will now be considered for an ENR Best of the Best Award.

Structures Unlimited is an industry leader in municipal wastewater treatment facilities, providing key components for a project or an entire structure. SUI projects feature Kalwall translucent sandwich panels that can be designed to fit configurations such as shed, hip and circular.

Because the buildings are pre-engineered, prefabricated and pre-finished, they can be erected in days in any kind of weather and faster than other building systems for immediate use. The inside and outside surfaces are ultra-smooth to resist dirt, dust and bacteria build-up, and can be steam cleaned. Structures feature walls and roofs that are highly insulated to prevent potential freeze-ups and energy efficient to take advantage of solar gain during daylight hours.

About Structures Unlimited
For over 45 years, Structures Unlimited, Inc. has been creating the most energy efficient, diffuse-light-transmitting skylights, enclosures and natatoriums with clear spans over 100 feet. A unique technology of our own self-supporting aluminum structure is blended with Kalwall translucent sandwich panels to form a total composite system ... pre-engineered, prefabricated and factory pre-finished for structural, energy-efficient, maintenance-free performance. The balanced daylighting achieved by these highly corrosion-resistant, energy-efficient structures opens up a world of design and engineering possibilities to architects and building designers.
