Daylighting Systems: Save Energy and Money

Save Energy and Money With Daylighting Systems

Daylighting, or skylighting, systems are an efficient way to light building spaces and reduce costs associated with electrical lighting.  By capturing natural light through a dome and filtering it down through a reflective system, the natural light is distributed evenly throughout a room through a diffuser.  Daylighting provides consistent lighting at a fraction of the cost of most electrical lighting systems without producing glare, hot spots, or UV rays.  Furthermore, studies directly correlate daylighting with increased productivity, well-being, and an overall sense of happiness.

Douglass Colony offers a variety of daylighting systems to help business owners realize financial savings.  The following systems yield tremendous financial and energy savings:

  • Firestone SunWave Daylight System: Used in industrial, retail, commercial and educational buildings, this daylighting system provides superior visible light transmittance as well as optimal 100% diffused light distribution without causing glare, UV radiation, or hot spots.
  • Carlisle SunWeldTM Prismatic Skylight: The unique computer designed tri-arch dome shape maximizes diffused Visible Light Transmission (VLT) and ensures superior mechanical and thermal properties.
  • Carlisle DrylightTM Tubular Skylight: Provides cost-effective solutions where larger industrial skylights fall short such as suspended ceilings, narrow warehousing aisles with high inventory racks and bridging deck-to-ceiling transition spaces.
  • Solatube Daylighting Systems (DS): Uses advanced optics to capture more sunlight on the roof and transfer more sunlight though the tubing and into the building interior.
  • Acralight NanoStar Skylights: These skylights are the only insulated unit skylights and smoke vents manufactured in the western U.S. that utilize NanoGel translucent aerogel insulation, the lightest, most efficient, light transmitting insulation material it the world.
