Features and Benefits

 

Significantly Lowers Energy Costs

  • Can replace electric lighting up to 80% of daylight hours with natural, diffused sunlight.

  • Generates significantly less heat than lighting fixtures.

Creates a Naturally Bright Environment

  • Produce 35% more visible light transmission than traditional skylights, while providing 100% diffusion of light for a naturally bright environment.

  • No glare and no “hot spots.”

Improve Human Performance

Studies show daylighting is correlated to dramatic improvements in human performance in retail, workplace and educational facilities:

  • Increase retail sales: A study initiated by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company showed that daylights increased sales 40% when compared to identical non-daylighted stores. Stores with daylighting also showed improved employee morale and reduced absenteeism.

  • Enhance quality of life: A study by the California Board of Energy Efficiency found that daylights increase productivity and improve visibility, health, mood and overall well-being in employees.

  • Improve student performance: A study by Heschong Mahone Group, Fair Oaks, CA, found that students with the most amount of daylighting in their classrooms progressed 20% faster on math tests and 26% faster on reading tests in one year than those with the least daylighting.

Creates a Cleaner, More Energy-Independent World

  • By cutting demand for energy production, daylighting reduces greenhouse gases and the pollution of water and air – the by-products of generating electricity.

  • SunWave Daylighting Systems contribute to a reduction in the use of fossil fuels for creating energy.

  • According to the Heschong Mahone Group, Inc., America could reduce its peak load electrical demand by 24,000 megawatts just by daylighting existing buildings that make sense to daylight using skylights. The savings is equal to twenty-four 1,000 megawatt nuclear power plants or forty-eight 500 megawatt coal fired power plants.

Designed to Last, and Simple to Install

  • Our industry-leading frame design with 100% thermal break and weep holes eliminates concerns over condensation.

  • Using UV resistant acrylic or polycarbonate increases the product life cycle and efficiency well past traditional expectations.

  • Warrantable for up to 20 years when installed by a Firestone licensed contractor.
