Good Enough to Insulate the Mars Rover
6 X the Insulating Value of a Traditional Skylight
For minimal thermal transfer while still providing an abundance of highly diffused
natural light you want Nano Insulgel. Our proprietary Nano Insulgel skylights utilize
multi-wall polycarbonate panels filled with nano sized silica aerogel. Silica aerogels,
also known as “blue smoke” or “frozen smoke”, are one of the lightest solid materials
known and function as super insulators. The nano pore structure sized material possess
excellent light transmission, thermal and sound insulation properties. Nano Insulgel
has about 6 times the insulating value of a traditional skylight.
If extremely low thermal transfer is of great importance in your daylighting plans
you want Nano Insulgel, exclusively by Bristolite Daylighting Systems.
Nano Insulgel can be applied to any glazing configuration or combination; however
our standard Nano Insulgel skylights are comprised of acrylic outer domes over Nano
Nano Insulgel 48% LT .42 SHGC .09 - .26 U Factor
Nano Insulgel skylight features and options include:
- Heavy Duty AL frame series
- True AAMA Compliant “Poured and Debridged” Thermal Break
- Radial Triarch, Pyramid, Double Hip, Bubble and Low Profile dome shapes
- EDPM Curb Seal Tape
- Weather Sweep
- Unit skylights in all sizes up to and including ICDs of 48" x 96" and 60” x 72"
- Grid modular units for greater sizes (multiple unit skylights in one master frame)
A 2.5 kg brick is supported
by a piece of Aerogel weighing
only two grams.
