The Daylighting Division of HUVCO L.L.C., Frederick, Md., announced an improved line of skylights. These new units use 8,000 prisms per square foot to equally diffuse light throughout the room, eliminating the typical glare and damaging “hotspots” associated with traditional skylights. The industrial strength of the unit has been demonstrated by its ability to withstand a 200-pound drop test from the height of 3 feet. A 4-foot by 8-foot dome can bear up to 1,500 pounds on top of it. The unit can be triple and quad glazed for better insulation.
