Façades wrap around your space and provide side lighting with museum-quality daylight™ and optimal insulation, all while promoting privacy for publicly accessed spaces. Façades can be designed in a variety of wall systems and translucent daylighting applications to suit various requirements.
Skylights create elegant top lighting that’s also economical. Elevate a basic skylight by turning it into an architectural feature that diffuses light deep into spaces without glare.
Canopies cover transitional spaces and provide protection for entry points and walkways. They soften the light between spaces, reducing the time required to let your eyes adjust and preventing disorientation.
