Skylights, Windows and Daylighting

EXTECH/Exterior Technologies Inc. awarded patent

EXTECH/Exterior Technologies Inc. has been awarded a patent for the design of its Hybrid (Green) Wall/Skylight System. This light-transmitting skylight system is composed of a glass outer layer, followed by an airspace and a second layer of cellular polycarbonate. The combination results in an insulating value nearly twice that of conventional insulated glass systems. It provides diffused daylighting for energy savings. Further savings can be achieved through optional photovoltaic panels in the outer layer.
