New Value-Engineered Translucent Panel Wall Systems Offer High-Quality, Low-Cost Natural Light


Creating an economical daylighting system that meets the demands of architects and building owners is a difficult task. Major Industries has taken on this challenge by offering a new line of translucent curtainwall - LightBasic™ - that’s value-engineered to offer the benefits of translucent daylighting at a reduced price point.

Officially released at the 2010 American Institute of Architects National Convention and Expo in Miami Beach, LightBasic™ translucent wall systems feature a simplified framing system and fewer system options when compared to our standard Guardian 275® translucent panel systems. LightBasic™ systems also feature 100% acrylic-based AcrylitGC®. Produced by Glasteel®, AcrylitGC® is an economical face sheet that offers glare-free light while resisting weathering and fiberbloom. This combination of simplified options and an acrylic face sheet allows us to keep costs down while still providing a dependable, reliable translucent curtainwall system that is easy on the bottom line.
