LIGHTWALL 3440 meets performance specifications, including high wind loads, impact resistance, fire rating, air infiltration, water penetration, thermal (0.25 U-Factor) and structural performance. The LIGHTWALL 3440 possesses some of the highest performance numbers in the industry due to its advanced framing. These attributes support energy efficiency and sustainability goals, such as the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED rating systems.

The diffusing characteristics of the LIGHTWALL 3440 system’s cellular polycarbonate glazing provides energy-efficient daylighting, lowers dependence on electric lighting and reduces solar heat gain to keep people comfortable within the building envelope. Viewed from the exterior, these diffusing characteristics also reduce light pollution emanating from the building.

To witness these daylight diffusing characteristics first hand, be sure to read EXTECH’s Case Study on the Boston Logan International Airport Hangars retrofit.

Further benefits and details of LIGHTWALL 3440:

  • Vertical panels up to 54-feet long eliminate leak-prone horizontal joints.
  • Highly insulating, up to a U-0.25 (R-4) for 40mm thick panels; R-5 for 50mm thick panels.
  • Tongue and Groove joinery provides clean appearance without the need for vertical framing.
  • High-impact resistance.
  • Framing systems for new construction and retrofit work.
  • LEED credits available for 100 percent recyclable polycarbonate and aluminum framing.
  • Complete air/water/structural testing.
  • Manufactured in the U.S.A.

Further supporting projects’ environmental goals, LIGHTWALL 3440 uses highly insulating, 100 percent recyclable, 40-millimeter structural cellular polycarbonate glazing and 38.95 percent recycled aluminum framing.
