New Dome Skylight Offers Greater Strength, Less Glare

Kingspan Light + Air North America unveils its new advanced technology dome. The strong polycarbonate dome shape was engineered to meet all new building code standards and can be customized to fit any space.

According to the company, the new skylight product is currently available in single, double and triple glazed options to enhance thermal performance. Outer domes will typically be clear or white, with multiple options for inner domes based on U-value or lower SHGC needs. All domes will be able to capture light even at low angles and offer an even diffusion of light with less glare.

“Kingspan is proud to have responded to current industry demands and updated code requirements with a more durable, stronger skylight solution,” said Kyle McEnroe Vice President of Sales, Skylights, Kingspan Light + Air. “This new product will offer all of these benefits without sacrificing light capture and diffusion capabilities.”

Energy-Efficient Translucent Windows Designed for Smaller Envelope Openings

Kingspan Light + Air North America has scaled the size of the company’s innovative two-panel UniQuad system to create the more modular and versatile UniQuad Translucent Windows for smaller envelope openings. 

According to the company, architects can expect the same durability, seamless integration and clean look they have for years from the UniQuad system — just in a smaller size. Providing 25 percent greater light transmission than other daylighting products on the market, UniQuad eliminates glare and hot spots found in glass applications, allowing for a more controlled indoor environment. 

 “We’ve taken our innovative two-panel UniQuad system and scaled it to create something more efficient for smaller applications,” said Rafael Rivero, VP of Commercial, Kingspan Light + Air. “Ideal for both new and retrofit projects, the UniQuad Translucent Windows are the solution for any size building looking to reap the full health and wellness benefits of glare-free daylighting.” 

Available in heights up to 6 feet, UniQuad Translucent Windows can be built in limitless lengths. With the ability to specify custom window sizes and colors, the two-panel system allows buildings to coordinate with corporate or campus colors, or design a new and innovative look.  

UniQuad Translucent Windows feature the same two-panel composition with Removeable Skin Technology (RST) as the UniQuad system, allowing for the removal of the exterior panel while the interior panel remains in place. Additional insulation can be added between the two panels to improve thermal performance and further increase efficiency.

According to the manufacturer, UniQuad Translucent Windows can help buildings achieve LEED certification and other sustainability goals and are NFRC certified. UniQuad Translucent Windows come with a 10-year warranty against discoloration, loss of translucence, delamination and color change.
