Lumira Daylighting

There has always been an awkward trade-off between the degree of natural light a structure allows in and its ability to control heat retention or loss: the more light the less temperature control available.
The Lumira Aerogel system finally puts to rest this compromise.

When incorporated into daylighting systems such as skylights, ceiling panels or glass walls it allows up to 80% of the natural light to penetrate the interior while drastically cutting down on excessive heat loss or build up by up to six times other conventional systems.
