Natural lighting system Bristolite (Dome Skylights)

EMC do Brasil is the exclusive distributor of Prismatic Dome Skylights Bristolite throughout the national territory. Bristolite has an extensive list of successful projects, from large- to small-sized companies, offering satisfactory results due to the high quality of our products.

Known as the best skylight (dome) type natural lighting systems with prismatic acrylic double lenses, that is, extruded with microprisms on one surface, allowing a uniform diffusion of the sunlight with minimal heat conduction into the environment. The upper prismatic lens is clear (transparent) with 4 mm thickness and internal or lower lens is milky with 3 mm thickness, and this is the main element for the light diffusion into the environment.

Lenses are mounted on an extruded aluminum frame, with a special design preventing any type of water infiltration into the environment, a drainage system of internal condensation to the exterior of the roof, if this occurs.

Holds up to 250 kg static weight on lenses.

This natural lighting system offers the following advantages:

Greater energy saving; the maximum use of natural lighting transmission is necessary.

According to NFRC (National Federation of Roofing Contractors in the USA), IES (Illuminating Engineering Society of North America), other laboratories and the customers themselves that have those systems installed in their roofs, (dome) skylights of Bristolite proved to be the best option for energy savings due to the great transmission of visible light, low heat transmission, and blocking the UV rays.

Corrosion-resistant aluminum frame.

A 5-year warranty from the installation date.

Reasons to use Natural Lighting:

- Natural lighting improves your business’ brands:

Some of the largest retail companies are embracing natural lightning as a way to improve their customers’ experience. Wal-Mart uses natural lighting in many of its large stores, not only to reduce its energy costs but also to lift its customers’ mood.

In fact, the multi-billion dollar retail chain found that incorporating natural lighting onto its stores increased sales of certain products. Walmart realized that natural lighting has increased total sales revenues in stores where natural lighting was adopted.

The evidence is in the results and, in this case, it is clear that natural lighting beats artificial lighting not just in a work environment but also in a buying one.

- Natural Lighting improves workplace productivity:

The Swiss researcher Mirjam Münch has spent decades researching the value of natural light for businesses. Her research indicates that as well as improving sales for the largest retailers, natural light can improve productivity for largest corporate offices.

This is largely due to an incredible dual benefit of natural light: Its ability to make people more aware and less stressed. Workers based in environments lit by natural light, in Münch’s research, had lower cortisol levels and were more awake.

If you operate a business that depends on productive, hardworking staff, you might see a greater increase in productivity from a natural daylighting system that from a management consultant, financial incentive program, or new corporate motto.

- Unlike artificial light, natural light is healthy:

From vitamin D to cortisol, natural light plays an important role in regulating many of the hormones that control the human body. While exposure to artificial light has many negative health effects, normal exposure to daylight has positive effects.

Workers that spend their time in an environment lit using natural light are far less likely to become depressed, less likely to experience a loss of memory, and tend to take fewer sick days than their counterparts working under artificial lighting.

Scientists believe that this is due to our natural orientation to work in places that are lit naturally by the sun, rather than the artificial offices and factories that most workers now spend most of their day inside.

- Daylighting significantly reduces lighting costs:

Many of the benefits of natural light appeal to doctors and health gurus. Others may appeal purely to accountants and investors. As well as enhancing health and raising worker productivity, daylighting results in a proven decline in lighting costs.

Since lighting-related electrical expenses are one of the biggest expenses for many businesses, reducing them is a key priority. In certain cases, modern daylighting is capable of reducing lighting-related energy expenses by as much as 80 percent.

The savings produced by daylighting are not insignificant, particularly for large buildings and businesses.
