Failed Kalwal Skylights

We are seeing more and more failed Kalwall Skylights

We received another call today from a hospital that had Kalwall installed when it was built and are now having a bad smell near the skylights. This is caused by water penetrating through the gasket seals and/or directly through the fiberglass itself which then sits inside the panels and putrefies.

This is exactly what happened in 2008 at a North Carolina building owned by Duke Energy. We had to remove three old skylights and install new polycarbonate skylights while the building was still occupied.

Contact us for more information if you have the same situation.
