Want Better Performing Students? Let Them Bask in Natural Light

Educational experts around the country are continuously trying to create & implement new learning initiatives meant to increase student achievement. To say the least, some have been more successful than others. However, the physical structure is often overlooked as a source of potential success. In other words, implementing design improvements to the school itself can improve the behavior, performance, and morale of the students and staff. While buying into a new reading series costs significantly less than what we’re about to suggest, the long-term benefits will be better realized because physiological evidence doesn’t lie… Sunlight is good for us, and apparently, it’s good for learning too!


It’s so good, in fact, that an article written in 2010 by architects Eric Brossy de Dios, Tinka Rogic, and Wendell Vaughn at the American School and University highlighted the benefits of implementing a passive daylighting system into the design of schools. While their work focuses on such systems being an integral part of the design process, not added once the structure is complete, many of Bristolite’s custom roof skylights can be incorporated into existing buildings without major structural work. Among the easiest are flat-roofed structures as their design lends themselves well to our wide assortment of flat roof commercial skylights.

Our mission at Bristolite is to provide the highest quality products and offer superior service for residential, commercial, and industrial customers alike, all the while remaining an exceptional value.

We aim to provide the building industry with an abundance of accurate, current, and relevant information relative to daylighting and energy conservation. We take our corporate responsibilities very seriously because we consider ourselves innovators and stewards in the efficient use of sustainable carbon-free energy.
