Bristolite Advantage
Our mission at Bristolite is to provide our customers with the highest quality products and supreme service at an exceptional value. We also aim to provide the industry with an abundance of accurate and useful information relative to daylighting and energy conservation. We take our corporate responsibility to our employees, associates, industry colleagues and customers very seriously and we see ourselves as stewards for the efficient use of sustainable carbon free energy.

Frame Design and Integrity

At Bristolite we design our product to be easy to install, high-performing, and long lasting to create superior value versus our competitors. Frame design is very important to the overall integrity of skylights and smoke vents and while we are always searching for ways to minimize product cost through innovative design techniques and manufacturing processes we do not allow cost to dominate our product design principles.

In the figure below please note the cautionary statement placed on the NFRC report for a competitor’s prismatic skylight.

In our evaluation of the competitor’s frame versus the Bristolite AL, ALT, ALI and ALIT frames we find the competitor’s frame to be considerably smaller dimensionally and thinner.
