The "illumaWALL," which is a translucent illuminated wall system designed to project a programmable million+ colors, has been singled out by both Architectural Record and Buildings magazines in their 2006 lists of top products. If I must say so, that’s quite the achievement. The illumaWALL incorporates translucent polycarbonate glazings with programmable LED lighting for custom design/build applications. Depending on the type of energy a project is looking for, the illumaWALL could be used both in the interior and exterior, and in commercial, retail, hotel, education, entertainment, industrial, healthcare, or residential uses.
From what I understand, the wall will also contribute LEED points towards a building owner’s certification. The translucent polycarbonate glazings minimize heat gain and glare (which leads to lower heating and cooling costs) and the LED lighting incorporates low-voltage, low-heat design. Not bad. I could see how the illumaWALL would be good for a restaurant, spa, or retail store, depending on the overall design and brand concept. Via PRNewswire + Duo-Gard + Info PDF.
