Natural light and ventilation: Our integrated curtain wall systems, windows, entrances and framing systems are focused on daylighting, natural ventilation and energy efficiency, which can significantly reduce operating costs.
Occupant comfort: Sustainable buildings provide many advantages. Studies have shown that natural light increases productivity and work-related performance while access to outside views can have important stress-reducing effects.1 Kawneer’s high-thermal performance systems provide optimum thermal efficiencies, leading to greater energy conservation in corporate working environments, along with increased comfort for building occupants. Our sunshade products help reduce solar heat gain and our interior light shelves reflect light deeper into the building’s interior, reducing operational costs.
Sustainable building certification: Our commitment to creating products and systems that comply with LEED standards has helped to create environments that not only protect occupants, but also secure the future of our planet through sustainable building solutions.
Safety and Protection: The need for increased security is a fact of life in most public buildings. Kawneer products yield unparalleled strength and durability to help increase security for building occupants. We offer entrances with emergency egress devices for crowded buildings, allowing for quick exiting as well as controlled user access. Many of our products have been stringently tested for hurricane resistance for both large and small missile impacts and blast-tested to ASTM standards. Furthermore, our ADA compliant solutions help protect occupants from potential hazards.
