Beyond its energy efficiency, LITEFLAM is also a cost-effective lighting solution that helps facilities like yours save on energy costs. As LITEFLAM often reduces and eliminates, the need to use artificial lighting during the day, facilities with skylights will notice a dramatic decrease in operational costs after making the switch.
Reduces Your Carbon Footprint

Thanks to LITEFLAM’s ability to capture and make good use of natural light, your facility will no longer be dependant on artificial light sources. In turn, this dramatically reduces the amount of energy your building consumes.

On top of helping your facility reduce its carbon footprint, LITEFLAM walkable skylights also offer tremendous design flexibility to architects, developers and designers.
