Lucite EcoShade IR reflective acrylic sheet

Now this is WAY COOL. No puns. Lucite has a new product for use in skylights and other window glazing. I quote:


A FRESH AND REVOLUTIONARY PRODUCT THAT REFLECTS MORE THAN 75% OF IR RADIATION PRESENT IN SUNLIGHT

A new product, IR reflective acrylic sheet is a continuous cast acrylic sheet containing an innovative component distributed uniformly throughout the material. This aspect means that the component will not heat or form out of the material.

A PLUS FOR ENERGY CONSERVATION ADVOCATES

IR reflective acrylic sheet will effectively reduce heat transmitted through windows and skylights during the summer months. This ground-breaking technology also reduces heat lost during the winter.

DESIGNER APPEAL

IR reflective acrylic sheet also appeals to the design community because of its pleasing aesthetics. The iridescent effect compliments many modern designs from fashion to architecture. The technology in IR reflective acrylic sheet often evokes feelings associate with happiness and comfort. These calming effects are due in part to the color reaction exhibited when IR reflective acrylic sheet transforms from serene blue to glistening gold based on the angle of view and light surroundings.

  1. Great Blog!!! Acrylic skylights are even more energy efficient than plastic and tend to be best for roofs made out of higher profile materials.

  2. Maybe they can also add a little bit of solar technology on those wonderful sheets. It wouldn't just reflect harmful infrared rays it will also light up the rooms and save up energy at the same time.
