Kingspan Light + Air, formerly Bristolite Daylighting Systems is one of the most recognized names in daylighting. For over 50 years 42 years we have led the industry with many skylight and heat and smoke vent designs, sizes and options.
Our comprehensive product line servicing the industrial, commercial, retail, municipal and residential markets has always been known for innovation, performance, dependability, longevity and exceptional value. Energy efficiency, reliability and safety are the cornerstones of our design design philosophy. We are the forerunner in daylighting design programs that literally begin with "turning the lights off" and using FREE natural daylight for illumination of interior building spaces saving dollars and precious energy.
The specification includes Insulair a strong, lightweight, super insulating, sound dampening, high diffused light transmitting, beautiful architectural glazing for all horizontal and vertical daylighting systems that can also be combined with an extruded aluminum frames to allow for integration with a range of building materials.
Insulair is intended for use in all metal framed architectural skylight glazings and vertical wall light emitting applications such as pyramids, octagons, polygons, barrel vaults, ridge lights, continuous vaults, canopies, single slope lean to, and all other applications requiring natural lighting while supplying excellent insulation values. Insulair is also the perfect glazing replacement for aged, fiber bloom, yellowed, fiberglass sandwich glazed daylighting systems.
