At Holcim Building Envelope, one of our goals is to help our customers conserve energy by maximizing the number of hours their electric lights can be turned off. A cost effective way to achieve this is to use rooftop skylights to daylight a space and harness the full spectrum of natural sunlight.
Please see our helpful Product Selector Tool below.
Selecting the right skylight for your commercial or industrial building can be difficult when you are not familiar with the products. Our Product Selector Tool was developed as a general reference guide to aid in the selection of a skylight based on geographic location, application, and building requirements.*
The following criteria are included:
• Wind Load (Geographic)
• Hail Rating (Geographic)
• Climate Zone (Geographic, Regulatory)
• Building Insurance – Factory Mutual (Building Requirements)
• Hurricane Zone (Geographic)

*Use this guide only as a reference guide. Please reference local code and specification requirements when selecting a skylight.
