Major Industries, Inc. manufactures energy-saving daylighting systems for any design and budget. We offer custom skylight design options and a full range of glazing choices – from Guardian 275® translucent FRP panels to polycarbonate multi-wall, acrylic and glass. We also manufacture thermally efficient translucent curtainwall systems that are a perfect match for both new and retrofit applications. Our goal is to provide building owners with a daylighting system that best fits the building’s function. Whether you’re designing a work area that requires translucent panels for glare-free light, or an entryway that demands striking views of the sky, Major can create a solution that’s right for you.

Equally important is the economic cost associated with a poorly designed daylighting system.
