Project Spotlight - Skylights Illuminate PAST Innovation Lab

Major Industries recently provided a few Auburn® glass skylights for the PAST Foundation Innovation Lab in Columbus, Ohio. The PAST Foundation is made up of scientists and educators who work together to create programs for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) schools that focus on a learn-by-doing approach.
Auburn® Skylights

The newly renovated warehouse that's home for the Innovation Lab is divided into hands-on learning labs with flexible seating areas and access to the latest technology. WSA Studio designed the space, which has a central design feature - a large “agora” space that can accommodate overflow from adjacent classrooms and provides additional separate learning space. The highlight of the space are two large Auburn® glass single slope skylights that provide access to daylight for both the space itself and the adjoining rooms. Access to natural light, especially in a location such as this in the central part of a building, can make the space feel more inviting, and cut down on artificial lighting needs during peak use hours.

See You @ the AIA National Convention!

The 2016 AIA National Convention and Expo in Philadelphia is only a few days away, and we've been busy getting ready for the Expo with a new booth, some new samples and free give-aways. If you're headed to the convention, we encourage you to stop by our booth - #1922 - and check out what's new in skylights, wall systems and canopies. From translucent panel systems to glass and polycarbonate multi-wall, as well as mixed glazed systems, we have a daylighting solution that's sure to fit your needs.

Major is also participating in this year's Expo Chat program. By stopping by the booth for a 15 minute discussion about daylighting, and getting our verification code, you can earn Learning Units (four 15-minute chats add up to one LU - and you can get up to six total). No appointments are necessary, and you can chat about a number of topics from new products to the pros and cons of materials.

We hope that you're able to attend the convention this year, and look forward to seeing you at the show on May 19-21, 2016!

Practice Facilities Shine with Guardian 275® Translucent Panels

Guardian 275® wall systemMajor Colleges and Universities across the country have been pushing more and more dollars toward indoor athletic facilities in order to provide better practice facilities for their student athletes, and to entice potential athletes to attend. But these facilities aren't just for keeping student athletes out of the rain and snow... they can also be useful when the temperature dips below freezing or when the Summer heat makes it difficult to focus on practices.

Miami University in Ohio recently constructed the David and Anita Dauch Indoor Sports Center, a 91,000-square-foot facility that's adjacent to the main outdoor stadium. While it looks like a simple football field, the set-up can be modified by netting and other means to accommodate additional sports. “You can cut the field in half, so baseball can be on one and softball on the other,” said David Sayler, the University's Athletic Director, in a recent article in the Oxford Journal-News. “We have netting at the ends as well, and on the sides, so baseball and softball can actually hit balls in here. Golf hits balls in here, there’s track lanes over on the other side of the facility. There’s a jump pit on the end. Soccer can use this, lacrosse, everybody.”

The facility, designed by RATIO Architects, Inc., utilizes Guardian 275® translucent panel wall systems throughout, allowing for diffuse natural light to enter the large practice space while also limiting solar heat gain during Summer months when off-season workouts and practices are in full swing. With a wide variety of sheet color combinations and insulation options, Major can provide a Guardian 275® configuration that will fit your building's needs.
Guardian 275® Wall System

No matter what type of athletic facility you're designing, adding translucent panel daylighting can cut down on energy costs, eliminate glare and hot-spots, and help create a distraction-free training environment for athletes. And with Major's wide range of glazing and performance options, we can put together a custom solution that's both practical and eye-catching. Contact us today!
