Acuity Sunoptics Seamlight curbless daylighting system

September 27, 2011 - Acuity Brands has expanded its Sunoptics prismatic daylighting portfolio with the introduction of the Seamlight curbless daylighting system, which is designed for direct installation onto existing industrial standing-seam roofing systems, thereby creating opportunities for the implementation of daylighting. Sunoptics prismatic skylights optimize indoor daylighting performance via a patented dome construction, says Acuity, that is designed to capture more light at low sun angles. It maximizes the amount of light transmittance while maintaining 100% diffusion and eliminating undesirable hot spots, glare and UV damage, adds the company. The Seamlight system’s installation does not interfere with the structural integrity of industrial low-slope, standing-seam metal roofing systems. The product’s integrated rail attaches to the roof’s structural standing seam, allowing Seamlight to move with roof expansion and contraction.
