Daylighting with Prismatic Skylights

Daylighting with Prismatic Skylights is the controlled admission of natural sunlight into your building using diffused skylights, both integrated and curb mounted, in conjunction with energy-efficient lighting and a day-light-responsive lighting control system, maximizing your energy savings. Ideal for nearly any application, daylighting with prismatic skylights significantly reduces the need for electric light, which will save significantly on energy costs.

Prismatic skylights maximize light transmission
GSM prismatic skylights enable building owners to harness the sun so that electric lights can be dimmed or turned off for a portion of the day while making the interior more pleasant for occupants. By completely diffusing incoming sunlight, prismatic skylights refract light into micro light beams, spreading the sun’s bright, natural light throughout your building’s space.

Integrated Prismatic Skylights
Designed with a Class 4 Impact rating, our integrated prismatic skylight is the ideal solution for daylighting when using the Gulf States Manufacturers’ standing seam roof system. Factory manufactured and shipped as a complete unit, the Standing Seam Integrated Prismatic Skylight is mounted to the trapezoidal steel panel, and is simply seamed in with the rest of your roof.

Curb Mounted Prismatic Skylights
Perfect for new construction or retrofit applications with any Gulf States roof, this patented skylight is designed with a double-glazed acrylic over acrylic lens. Using the highest UV resistant materials ensures the highest visible light transmission. Its performance provides better quality light for maximum hours, maximizing energy savings by greatly reducing electric lighting use. More>>


Smoke & Heat Vent Skylights
Smoke and heat vent skylights are rooftop venting systems typically used in manufacturing & industrial buildings, warehouses, and retail facilities. They automatically open, releasing heat, smoke, and noxious fumes during a fire, as required by building code section 910. More>>




LED Lighting and Controls
Using thousands of tiny prisms to completely diffuse incoming sunlight, GSM prismatic skylights completely diffuse incoming sunlight and refract it into micro light beams. This transmits 35% more light over conventional skylights, and spreads the natural light throughout your building. More>>



Why Prismatic Skylights?

  • 100% light diffusion
  • No hot spots
  • No glare
  • No UV damage
  • No uncontrolled heat

With at least 4,000 tiny prisms per square foot of glazing layer, Gulf States Manufacturers’ prismatic skylights provide 100% diffusion and transmit 35% more light than conventional skylights.

By completely diffusing incoming sunlight, Gulf States Manufacturers’ prismatic skylights refract the light into micro light beams, spreading the sun’s bright, natural light throughout the space. This reduces the sun’s intensity without compromising daylighting effectiveness.
