Speedwall answers the challenge of emerging building codes, which demand thermal performance and air tightness.

Speedwall is a factory-assembled modular exterior wall system that delivers quality and performance levels far beyond what is possible with on-site construction.

Built on an aluminum chassis based on Flynn’s 6450 unitized curtain wall system, Speedwall modules are completely self-framed, sealed, and insulated in Flynn’s manufacturing facility, with all windows, doors, and exterior cladding pre-installed.

The Future is fast

Speedwall’s revolutionary design yields a game-changing reduction in installation time and complexity. The combined result is a quantum leap forward in building envelope engineering.

Speedwall cross section diagram

Speedwall pre-fabricated modules span floor to floor and column to column, and lock together, forming a complete weather-resistant facade.

Flynn Speedwall is a solution for the evolution of building envelope performance standards

Proven technology meets next-generation building envelope engineering.

  • Integrates seamlessly with Flynn 6450 HP Curtain Wall where full-height glass is desired
  • Suitable for steel, concrete, and mass timber construction with alternate assemblies also available in GLT or CLT framing
  • Limitless colours and finishes can be chosen to meet design intent

SPEEDWALL’s Features and Benefits

Speedwall performance icon


• Thermal bridge free design with high performance insulation, able to achieve effective R-values as high as 47.5 for the opaque areas.

• Larger modules mean fewer interfaces between elements, which, combined with factory QA and QC, equals superior air tightness.

• Durable sealed construction to meet the demands of full building airtight commissioning.

• High performance glazing systems (to suit aesthetic and performance requirements).

Speedwall fast installation icon

Fast Installation

• Speedwall modules can enclose an eight-storey building in as little as a month, depending on its design.

• Building enclosure can be achieved in half the time of traditional construction, and occupants and tenants can move in that much sooner.

Speedwall Quality and Control icon

Quality Control and Safety

• Entire assembly of system is done in a factory with a strict QA/QC protocol to ensure we build as per the design.

• Ability to focus on where materials are sourced from and limit waste through refined processes in the factory.

• Ability to focus on interface details between the window and wall to ensure minimal performance loss.

• Less on-site labour leading to a safer work environment.

• All work done with a crane with no work to be done outside during and after installation.

Fast forward to code compliance

Incoming building codes increasingly challenge the thermal performance limits of traditional site-constructed systems. Within the next few years, those systems will not measure up to the most stringent requirements.

Where previous energy codes evaluated the system efficiency of building envelope components in isolation, emerging requirements take more comprehensive thermal bridging calculations into account.

The sheer number of interfaces between window and wall components in traditional building envelope construction, coupled with their installation and quality control in the construction site environment – often by multiple trades – leaves the final product challenged to meet the incoming codes.

The large factory-built Speedwall modules answer the energy challenge by delivering a quality, interlocking, airtight assembly with a specific focus on improved thermal performance.

Speedwall delivers the performance required for net-zero energy performance standards, which are designed to improve the building’s carbon footprint and reduce operating costs.
