Retrofitted 16 skylight pods at the Embassy Suites Phoenix Biltmore.

The existing ¼” clear plexiglass lenses and aluminum frames were replaced, the existing curb and roof flashing system remained in place.

New 1″ six-wall polycarbonate lenses and framing system were installed, significantly reducing the solar heat-gain into the atrium of the building.

The opal lenses also diffuse the sunlight, preventing direct sunlight from reaching areas in the atrium and restaurant.
