The Marriage of the Year?

This is the tale of a popular marriage - Football and Kalwall! It’s the FA’s new National Football Centre.  Nearly 3000sqm of Kalwall translucent cladding system has been specified by RedBox Design Group for the indoor football pitch and separate sports hall to create perfect playing conditions, diffusing natural daylight without glare or shadows.  In the sports hall (images opposite and below), the highest levels of daylight insulation and energy efficiency have been achieved by incorporating Lumira® aerogel within the 950sqm of Kalwall installed around its perimeter. This results in a remarkable ‘U’ value of 0.28W/m2K, equivalent to a solid wall. For all you need to know about Kalwall and/or Lumira, visit and/or
