LumiWall 40

40mm Multiwall Polycarbonate Vertical Translucent Panel System

LumiWall 40 is constructed with fully fabricated, lightweight, interlocking 40mm tongue and groove multiwall polycarbonate panels. It is a dry glaze system and offers optional polyurethane thermal breaks for improved thermal performance. The system has unlimited height and width, and is easily installed by commercial contractors.

LumiWall has a coextruded layer of UV inhibitor that requires no maintenance. Polycarbonate is not made of fibers that will deteriorate, which allows it to maintain its shape, color, and strength even when exposed to UV light.

LumiWall 40 delivers superior light transmission, high impact resistance,* and low u-values, all at an affordable price. Available with a wide range of color choices.**

Fiberglass Reinforced Panels vs. Multiwall Polycarbonate Panels

LumiWall vs. FRP Comparison
Fiberglass sandwich panel photographed side-by-side with a Wasco 40mm multiwall polycarbonate panel.

Fiberglass exterior and interior face sheets are adhered to an aluminum grid core. The grid core can also be thermally broken. The typical .23 u-value panel is insulated with fiberglass. Interior and exterior panels are fastened to the grid core with adhesives and the system is installed with exposed fasteners.

lumiwall-tgWasco’s 40mm multiwall polycarbonate system—LumiWall—is constructed with fully fabricated, lightweight, interlocking tongue and groove multiwall polycarbonate panels. It is a dry glaze system requiring no sealants on the panels and offers optional polyurethane thermal breaks in the frame for improved thermal performance. Two separate assembly points create a tight attractive corner with no exposed fasteners.

The fiberglass faces have a coating for UV protection, which is subject to weathering away resulting in color change. The absence of the coating will cause the fiberglass to “fiberbloom”. This is common with older panels and leads to additional discoloration with the added retention of dirt. The fiberglass warranty calls for on-going UV maintenance by reapplying coatings.

LumiWall has a coextruded layer of UV inhibitor that requires no maintenance. Polycarbonate is not made of fibers that will deteriorate, which allows it to maintain its shape, color, and strength even when exposed to UV light.

There is a potential for the dew point to fall within fiberglass panels between the faces. Moisture on the fiberglass insulation can lead to mold development, contributing to discoloration.

Lumiwall has no adhered faces and is constructed with a sloped sill nose with recessed weeps for maximum drainage.
