Design Spotlight: Enhancing Daylight with Color


Bright, vibrant color shouldn't be reserved just for the holidays - Major has some exciting color options available that also provide energy-saving daylighting and outstanding thermal performance.

Design Spotlight: Enhancing Daylight with Color

  • Spectra-Grid™ from Major is a creative design option that utilizes custom-colored translucent insulation to add visual impact to Guardian 275® daylighting systems. How does the Spectra-Grid™ system work? It's simple - as light makes its way through the Guardian 275® panel, it filters through the colored insulation and creates a warm, saturated glow when viewed from interior spaces. And because Spectra-Grid™ systems allow natural daylight to penetrate the space, they also offer the health and energy savings associated with natural daylight. School colors, matching a corporate logo, or a stained glass look for a church, are just a few of the ways Spectra-Grid™ can be a useful design tool. Custom colors are also available.

  • Finish colors can also be used to match corporate logo colors or school colors, but can also be used to call out entryways or to tie into other existing design cues.

  • Backlighting is a great way to highlight company signage or make an otherwise uninteresting space shine with excitement! Translucent panels can be easily backlit, and their light diffusion properties allow the colors to spread over a wide area of view.
