PANELITE DEVELOPS INNOVATIVE, ENERGY-EFFICIENT MATERIALS FOR ARCHITECTURE.
We pioneered the translucent honeycomb panel in 1998 and continue to create products based on the significant benefits of composite technologies. Our focus is on providing materials that enrich architectural experience with their beauty and impress with their quality, while measurably conserving energy and resources.
We provide products suited to a broad range of applications including interior partitions, ceilings, furniture and exterior building envelope solutions such as clerestories, curtain walls, skylights and roof glazing.
Our Bonded Series Translucent Honeycomb Panels are lightweight and light-transmitting, with exceptional resistance to deflection. They use 70-80% less raw material than a solid resin sheet of comparable thickness. They can be installed with minimal structural support and are easily handled and fabricated on site, allowing for elegant structural solutions and saving time and labor in installation. When used as partitions, Bonded Series panels will transmit up to 65% of the daylight entering through the facade into interior spaces, to lower energy requirements and improve user comfort.
Our ClearShade™ Insulating Glass Unit (IGU) for exterior applications provides exceptional solar shading, ample diffuse daylighting and dynamic views, goals that previously required multiple materials or technologies to achieve. ClearShade™’s energy-efficiency was validated by a NYSERDA (NY State Energy Research and Development Authority) grant to study the Parrish Art Museum. ClearShade has also been studied by the DOE/Lawrence Berkeley National Labs to evaluate its long-term environmental benefits and energy-savings. ClearShade is incorporated into LBNL’s suite of daylighting and energy-analysis evaluation tools allowing designers and engineers to optimize energy savings, user comfort and productivity.
Panelite holds exclusive partnerships with manufacturing leaders worldwide, notably in the US, Germany and Dubai, to ensure high quality, cost-effective supply to project sites globally.
We work closely with design leaders and facade/daylighting engineers to provide materials that meet their aesthetic, performance, and sustainability goals. Projects featuring Panelite have been widely published in the global design press and the company has been featured in the Cooper Hewitt National Design Triennial alongside Google, Apple and Boeing.
