Daylighting Systems for Corporate Applications

Ciralight SunTrackers drastically reduce utility costs, while creating a more desirable and productive work environment.


Corporations that seek to adopt a more sustainable business model must ensure that the green products they use are effective at lowering utility costs. Daylighting techniques are attractive, reliable, adaptable, and energy saving, which makes this natural design approach desirable in a corporate environment. Daylighting in corporate offices has many benefits including:

  • increased productivity
  • superior lighting
  • greater comfort
  • healthier indoor environment
  • lower utility bills

Studies link daylighting to human wellbeing. Proper daylighting reduces the occurrence of headaches and eyestrain. It also improves employee moods, which directly increases workplace job satisfaction and motivation as well as reduces absenteeism. Negative moods have been associated with discomfort and distraction, so it is no wonder that the positive moods of employees in an office with diffused natural light leads to a boost in employee productivity. 

After Lockheed Martin moved some of its offices to a daylit building, they calculated that “every minute less of wasted time per hour represents a 1.67% gain in productivity… where a 2% increase in productivity equates to $3 million saved (per year)”

Ciralight SunTrackers maximize the benefits of daylighting for corporations such as Boeing, LG, Google, Swinerton, Emerson, Eaton, Caterpillar, Johnson and Johnson, Cargil, and others. Our active daylighting solution is solar powered and operates entirely on energy from the sun’s rays.
