Translucent Skylights from Major Industries Receive Florida Approval


Major Industries’ Guardian 275® translucent panel skylights were recently approved by the Florida Building Commission for use in the Florida construction industry (Windzone 3 / Missile Level D). The Guardian 275® hurricane system, engineered to provide the highest level of hurricane protection, offers the same high-quality, glare-free light found in Major’s standard Guardian 275® translucent panel systems.

In order to receive Florida approval (which encompasses most Florida counties), Major’s Guardian 275® translucent skylights had to withstand a variety of missile impact, water and air infiltration and pressure load tests. Guardian 275® translucent skylights, with their unique sandwich panel design and use of high-performance materials, offer strong protection against hurricane-force winds and flying debris - without sacrificing the numerous health and environmental benefits that daylighting provides.
