SunWave Daylighting System

SunWave Daylighting System

The Firestone SunWave™ Daylighting System is a premium daylighting product for the commercial roofing industry.

Featuring a double-glazed, acrylic, prismatic layered dome, SunWave Daylighting System provides the highest visible light transmittance with superior light distribution, compared to sunlight domes. Over 4,000 tiny prisms per square foot refract, direct and diffuse sunlight into thousands of micro sunbeams. This technology will keep rooms bright enough to decrease the use of indoor electrical lighting up to 70% during daylight hours.

The innovative design of SunWave Daylighting System catches up to 20% more light at low angles than standard shapes and transmits more light to the work place area without producing glare, hot spots or UV damage to interior merchandise. It is equipped with an insulated, condensation-resistant, thermally-broken frame and integrated exterior weeping wells, eliminating the buildup of moisture in the frame. After passing a 200 lb drop test from two feet above the highest part of the dome, the dome has proven to be 50% stronger than building codes require. Hail and wind resistant, the dome is approved for use in Class 3 Hail Risk Zones and High Velocity Hurricane Zones.

SunWave curbs support the domes and come in a variety of sizes and gauge thicknesses, in either metal or wood. All curbs (insulated or non-insulated) come with a built-in security guard for fall protection, in compliance with OSHA regulations. UL-rated and FM-approved, SunWave smoke hatches are also available with two domes side-by-side, providing both fire safety and daylighting.

Substantial energy savings and available local and federal government incentives or rebates for daylighting translate into a short-term payback of as little as three years for installing the system. In addition, it also offers greater energy efficiency over the long term, reducing the pollution of water and air and the production of greenhouse gases.

SunWave Daylighting System is available in six standard sizes and can be covered under a 5-, 10-, 15- or 20-year Firestone Red Shield™ Warranty.
