Daylighting with Prismatic SkylightsContact Nucor Building Systems

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 will 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.
