We also aim to provide the industry with an abundance of accurate and useful information relative to daylighting and energy conservation. We take our corporate responsibility to our employees, associates, industry colleagues and customers very seriously and we see ourselves as stewards for the efficient use of sustainable carbon free energy.



Good Enough to Insulate the Mars Rover and Curiosity
6 X the Insulating Value of a Traditional Skylight

Meets the Following Energy Codes:
IECC 2003, IECC 2006, IECC 2009, IECC 2012,
ASHRAE 90.1-2004, ASHRAE 90.1-2007, ASHRAE 90.1- 2010

For minimal thermal transfer while still providing an abundance of highly diffused natural light you want Nano Insulgel/Lumira. Our proprietary Nano Insulgel/Lumira 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/Lumira 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/Lumira, exclusively by Bristolite Daylighting Systems.

Nano Insulgel/Lumira Skylights: Sustainable Lighting and Aerogel Insulation in One

Nano Insulgel/Lumira can be applied to any glazing configuration or combination; however our standard Nano Insulgel/Lumira skylights are comprised of acrylic outer domes over Nano Insulgel/Lumira panels.

Nano Insulgel/Lumira 48% LT .42 SHGC .09 - .26 U Factor

Nano Insulgel/Lumira 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
