The Daylighting Difference: Designing for Cold Climates

The Daylighting Difference: Designing for Cold Climates

Since Major is based in central Wisconsin, we're all too familiar with cold weather and snow. But is your daylighting system up to the challenge? Is the space losing $$ in the colder months due to heat loss? Do you need a skylight or wall system solution that will stand up to the toughest environments?

Major offers a wide range of daylighting systems for both new and retrofit applications. If you're looking for a translucent panel skylight or wall system, we've got a range of options from value-oriented LightBasic™ to versatile Guardian 275® to pultruded fiberglass framed Clima-Tite™. They can be configured with thermal breaks (Clima-Tite™ has fiberglass framing that eliminates the need for a thermal break), as well as various insulation densities for enhanced thermal performance, with center of panel U-factors as low as .08 (and .06 for our 4" Guardian 275® system).

Don't forget that Major also offers daylighting solutions beyond translucent panel systems. If you're looking for a glass skylight, Major's new Auburn® E+ option features thermal caps and integrated insulation that helps keep the cold out. And our IlluminPC™ polycarbonate multi-wall systems combine great thermal performance and impact resistance in a lightweight and easy-to-install package.

No matter what your building needs, contact us today for more details at sales@majorskylights.comor by calling 888-759-2678. You can also check out our website for details on all our product offerings, including U-factor data, light transmission numbers and more.
