About LightBasic™ Value-Engineered Translucent Curtainwall Systems


LightBasic™ Value-Engineered Translucent Curtainwall Systems

When your project demands a simple, cost-effective, lightweight translucent panel wall system, look no further than LightBasic™. Perfectly suited for warehouses, manufacturing centers, offices and other locations where glare-free light is instrumental to occupant performance and comfort, LightBasic™ translucent panel wall systems are a good fit for both new and retrofit construction, and are custom-designed to fit your specific needs and requirements.

LightBasic™ translucent wall systems are the perfect balance of economy and performance. They are constructed with an aluminum framing system that is optimized for toughness and light weight, and the panels feature a durable fiberglass face sheet that provides long-term performance and diffuse natural light. For more demanding climates, LightBasic™ systems can be configured with two different panel insulation options, and both Crystal and White sheet colors are available to help you make the most of the sun’s rays.
