Sunoptics

Leading the Path in Daylighting Technology Since 1978

Since 1978, Sunoptics has been a trusted partner for providing superior natural light and leak-free skylight designs for roofers, architects and building owners.

Our skylights feature high-performance patented prismatic lenses that provide maximum light transmittance while maintaining 100% diffusion —eliminating undesirable hot spots, glare and UV damage to the daylit space. 

To ensure high-grade products, Sunoptics extrudes its own plastics using high-quality materials. This allows for total quality control of the manufacturing process and optical quality of the lenses.

To further promote sustainability, we regrind our post-industrial scrap material, allowing us to provide a minimum of 50% post-industrial recycled content in our plastic. Sunoptics skylights and daylighting delivery systems harness the power of the sun to maximize the cost-effective energy savings of daylighting in warehousing, manufacturing, office and retail applications. Our national distribution network stands ready to serve your local needs. As part of the Acuity Brands® portfolio since 2011, Sunoptics® offers the advantage of providing holistic daylighting product solutions consisting of skylights, LED luminaires, and advanced lighting controls from one source.

Revolutionizing the daylighting market through technology.

[1978] Introduced the first fixed passive solar daylighting device that captured low-angle daylight through its prismatic-dome design to the skylight industry.

[2011] Acquired by Acuity Brands, a market-leading industrial lighting and technology company. Acuity Brands achieves growth through the development of innovative new products and services, including building management systems, lighting, lighting controls, and location-aware applications.

[2016] Launched LightFlex™ LED Tunable-White Tubular Daylighting System (SLFTL). The LightFlex™ LED daylighting system (SLFTL) is the industry’s first LED tubular daylighting system with integrated controls to provide natural light, tunable-white LED light, or a combination of both — in the same system.

Why Daylighting?

Why Daylighting_GettyImages167625444_900x600Lighting Design Today is centered on human health and well-being; while at the same time lowering energy use, meeting code and being sustainable. Daylight is natural, and it's free! Intuitively, we all sense that natural daylight is best, and studies continue to show its intrinsic benefits to human performance and morale in applications such as education and retail.

Sunoptics defines daylighting as the automated control strategy that uses properly diffused and dispersed natural daylight with advanced lighting controls to minimize the use of electric light in an interior space throughout the day. It provides a responsive energy-efficient human-centric lighting solution that supports occupant health and well-being, reduces energy costs and carbon emissions – contributing toward corporate ESG initiatives.
