Natural light is one of the best ways to liven up a room. Research even suggests that natural light actively improves physical wellbeing, boosts productivity and enhances our mood. Custom skylights are not only a great way to allow more sunlight into a room, but also improve energy efficiency, especially in colder climates.
BCJ Plastic Products specialises in custom skylights across a variety of applications, including private homes, commercial business, campers and boats. Read on to find out more about how to ensure you’re getting the best quality skylights.
Custom Skylights in Your Home, Camper & Boat
Whether you want to let natural light stream into your home, camper or boat, we have custom skylight solutions designed by our team of experts. Rather than carve out space into a wall, skylights allow sunlight to stream in from overhead. Not only does this maximise brightness throughout the day, it also keeps your walls free for artwork, shelving and other decor.
Let the light flood in with a custom skylight
Nothing improves the aesthetic of a space quite like natural light. While in some cases windows allow plenty of light into a room, sometimes floor-to-ceiling glass may not even be enough. This can be caused by many things, including trees or buildings blocking out sunlight and inconvenient room orientation. Custom skylights address this problem by capturing sunlight from overhead and allowing it uninterrupted access to your room.
Increase energy efficiency with skylights
Custom skylights allow light to stream in from overhead and can be an effective way to warm up a room and minimise heating costs on cold days. During daylight hours, skylights can also eliminate the need for interior lights and reduce your electricity bills.
What Do All the Best Quality Skylights Have in Common?
Whether you’re installing a large ceiling lantern to illuminate a kitchen or a compact skylight to brighten up a boat cabin, the best quality skylights should have one a few things in common.
1. Premium quality plastic
Skylights are exposed to the elements so construction is critical. At BCJ, we manufacture all our custom skylights from premium quality plastics resistant to harsh UV rays, wind, rain and frost. Our go-to plastic for manufacturing skylights is acrylic, an ultra-tough material with excellent strength and durability. We also use polycarbonate and copolyester for skylights that require extreme impact resistance.
2. Custom design and installation
Every space is unique and it’s rare to encounter two skylight projects with the exact same specifications. Big, small or somewhere in between, all the best quality skylights should be custom designed to fit your space. Not only does this maximise sunlight, it also ensures your skylight is waterproof, weather-resistant and built to last.
How Much Does a Skylight Cost?
Installing a skylight may seem like a big job, but with the right approach prices can be kept relatively low. So how much does a skylight cost? As a ballpark figure, skylights can range from as little as $200 right up to $4500 for large-scale projects.
Generally, the final figure will depend on design and installation specifications. A custom skylight is certainly worth the upgrade. We often have requests for specific glazing, blinds and shapes. By tailoring a skylight to your house, you’ll get the most out of your spending.
Domes and Diffusers
Don’t think a skylight is the right fit for your space? As well as skylights for sale, at BCJ we specialise in domes and diffusers. Like our skylights, all our domes and diffusers are custom designed to fit the space. They’re also made from durable, cost-effective materials.
As well as increasing the amount of natural light in a space, domes are also an effective way to diffuse light and soften harsh UV rays. The K12 Clear Prismatic Acrylic Light Diffuser is one of our most popular products, used to reduce glare in retail displays and conservatories.
