Daylighting with Prismatic Skylights

Daylighting with Prismatic Skylights is the controlled admission of natural sunlight into your building using diffused skylights, in conjunction with energy-efficient lighting and a daylight-responsive lighting control system, maximizing your energy savings. Ideal for nearly any application, daylighting with prismatic skylights significantly reduces the need for electric light, which can save significantly on energy costs.

Prismatic skylights maximize light transmission

NBS prismatic skylights enable building owners to harness the sun so that electric lights can be dimmed or turned off for a portion of the day while making the interior more pleasant for occupants. By completely diffusing incoming sunlight, prismatic skylights refract light into micro light beams, spreading the sun's bright, natural light throughout your building's space.

Curb Mounted Prismatic Skylights
Perfect for new construction or retrofit applications with any Nucor roof, this patented Quasar Prismatic Triarch Dome Skylight is designed with a double glazed polycaronate top lens over an acrylic bottom lens.The highest UV resistant materials ensures the most light transmission with better quality light for maximum hours & energy savings - greatly reducing electric lighting use.

Prismatic Skylight Roof Curb System
A successful roof curb system is one of the key barriers against the elements for any building. It is essential that every component is of the highest quality and able to withstand severe weather conditions. Although choosing a roof curb specially designed for a specific metal roof profile is critical, it is only part of a successful roof curb system. More>>

Smoke & Heat Vent Skylights
Smoke and heat vent skylights are rooftop venting systems typically used in manufacturing & industrial buildings, warehouses, and retail facilities. They automatically open, releasing heat, smoke, and noxious fumes during a fire, as required by building code section 910. More>>

LED Lighting and Controls
Our skylights are designed to be a part of a total solution, integrating natural lighting with prismatic skylights, efficient LED lighting, and advanced controls to significantly reduce energy costs. By combining prismatic skylights with energy efficient LED lighting and controls you can potentially reduce your annual electric lighting energy consumption by 40-60%. More>>


Why Prismatic Skylights?

With at least 4,000 tiny prisms per square foot of glazing layer, Nucor prismatic skylights provide 100% diffusion and transmit 35% more light than conventional skylights.

By completely diffusing incoming sunlight, Nucor's prismatic skylights refract the light into micro light beams, spreading the sun's bright, natural light throughout the space. This reduces the sun's intensity without compromising daylighting effectiveness.
