EcoSky emerged from a collaboration between Wasco and Evonik Cyro. The skylight’s thermal performance is three times higher than competitors’ products, according to the manufacturers. It incorporates Wasco’s Lumira Aerogel, which stops connective and conductive thermal transfer, while Evonik Cyro’s Acrylite Satin Ice acrylic sheet reduces glare and blocks infrared rays. The impact modified acrylic sheet comes in 100% haze white. wascoskylights.com
