Kalwall … Made in Manchester

Kalwall, a translucent sandwich building panel composed of thin fiberglass sheets over an aluminum framework, was developed in Manchester by Robert Keller in 1955. The material found extensive use in schools and factories and attracted worldwide attention after it was used to construct a pavilion at the 1959 Brussels World Fair. Kalwall is still made in Manchester today.
