VELUX acrylic skylights provide extremely high levels of visible light, and are available with thermal breaks and weep systems to maximize energy efficiency making them ideal for all commercial and industrial applications. Installing skylights often pays for itself in two years or less. VELUX offers skylights that have a 100% haze factor that provide diffused lighting with no glare. High levels of visible light transmittance are maintained, but that light is spread evenly throughout the space.
VELUX can help you determine the correct number of skylights to achieve maximum energy savings or obtain a desired lighting level.
Environmentally responsible and sustainable aspects in commercial structures have the potential to be far greater in scope and overall impact than in residential projects. The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) developed a voluntary program and tool known as LEED®, or Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, to better understand and learn design guidelines and industry standards with sustainable design for commercial buildings.
