Harvesting Daylight- 3M Daylight Radial Lens Film

Baxter Pharmaceutical Harvests Daylight with 3M Daylight Radial Lens Film

Problem:

Baxter Pharmaceutical’s new Covington GA plasma products facility design utilizes  extensive sets of skylights that presented an opportunity to harvest the daylight to minimize energy consumption from artificial lighting.

Solution:

The architect specified 3M Daylight Radial Lens film to capture the natural light from wide angles with the use of UV stabilized polycarbonate lenses. These lenses have a unique design that allows them to reduce glare and eliminate hot-spots while uniformly distributing light from the lens to the interior space. The optical grade plastic also does not alter the colors of the transmitted light. National Glazing Solutions LLC, a national 3M authorized dealer, was brought in to furnish and install the 3M product at the new Baxter facility.
