How Kalwall Is Used To Refurbish Aged Buildings

The University of Liverpool Sports and Fitness Centre pool, originally built in 1966, has been transformed by installing Kalwall. The £2.5 million refurbishment was designed by Atkins. Kalwall not only reduces the amount of energy needed to warm the pool in winter, while keeping it cool in summer, but also provides privacy. It transmits diffused natural daylight without the glare and stark contrasts of light and shade produced by conventional glazing -.  particularly important for swimmers and lifeguards because it reduces ‘veiling’ glare on the water. Highly insulating Kalwall has a U value of 0.78W/m2K - increased to 0.28 by introducing Lumira aerogel within the panels to provide the same insulation value as a solid wall.
