New Dimension in Daylighting and Thermal Performance...|
R-4 to R-46 (U=.23 to U=.02)*
Introducing a new generation of aluminum-framed building systems
allowing architects to custom-tune the energy performance
of any Structures Unlimited building or Clearspan™ Skyroof®. Combinations
of proprietary, high-performance translucent panels and low-cost
traditional panels lower overall cost, yet dramatically increase
insulation... without sacrificing usable daylight.
advanced systems now provide a unique, new ability to
meet the complex and demanding energy-code requirements font
of todays total building envelope, while fulfilling
the need to manage usable daylight.
Structures Unlimited now blends engineered, structural
aluminum, capable of clearspans over 100 feet, with
any combination of:
Kalwall® R-4 to R-10 (Translucent structural
Kalwall+ R-20 (The revolutionary Lumira
aerogel insulation panels)
Kal-Metal R-19 to R-46 (The
all-new, opaque, insulated metal panels)
Four Points, Manchester, New Hampshire
The Thermal Performance Advantage
Various combinations of translucent panels, integrated
with opaque, insulated metal panels, now provide an even
greater array of energy performance options. This provides
for balancing desired daylighting with the required energy
performance of the entire building at an affordable price.

Sheraton Four Points has the above combination, yielding
overall U=.20 (R-5)
