Engineered daylight diffusers
Solera units are engineered daylight diffusers. This means that they transform raw sunlight into soft, gentle, practical daylight that fills your entire space. This gives you all the benefits of natural light without the glare and pain that causes so many daylighting projects to fail.
We can help with design decisions by using Radiance Daylight design software to model space. This will help choose the glass, color, shape, size, and how much daylight. We have a number of Insulation values available to meet energy efficiency goals and budget.
Inherent Longevity of Glass
Glass is permanent and will not yellow or deteriorate. Solera is UV-stable and includes a warranty against color change for greater peace of mind.
Compatible to many sustainable building certifications including LEED, BREAM, Well and Fit Well.
