Translucent Panels | Sikorsky Airport, Stratford CT


Volo Aviation Project Details

For the Volo Aviation hangar at Sikorsky Airport, Beinfield Architecture wanted large translucent panels covering an entire façade while still allowing for individual windows within that wall. EXTECH’s LIGHTWALL Series #3440 Tongue and Groove translucent panel System was the perfect solution.

The design challenge was to provide an affordable façade along the 270-ft by 38-ft front face of this typical pre-manufactured steel frame structure. A polycarbonate cladding system was selected that allows diffused natural light into the offices during the day and inverts the effect with internal lighting at night.
