Silica Aerogel Skylights Are Incredibly Efficient Thanks To NASA

The Performance of Aerogels are Truly “Out of This World”!

NASA’s Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, endure the harsh Martian atmosphere thanks to a Space-Age compound known as aerogels. This solid silica is made from unique, nano-sized, silicon-based particles nicknamed “solid smoke” because it’s 99.8% air! They are 1000x less dense than glass, extraordinarily lightweight, and incredibly effective insulators… In fact, they all but eliminate heat transfer.

Kingspan Light + Air has capitalized on these amazing physical and chemical properties to create a series of silica aerogel skylights called Nano Insulgel/Lumira. They feature approximately 6X the insulating properties of traditional skylights, along with an astonishing .17 U factor! They’re sure to save your business money on energy costs in addition to serving as highly efficient daylighting solutions. Insulgel/Lumira skylights provide excellent light transmission, sound suppression, and thermal insulation abilities, enabling them to be among the most advanced skylights on the planet!

Our mission at Kingspan Light + Air is to provide the highest quality products and offer superior service for residential, commercial, and industrial customers alike.

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