The Retrolite is able to prevent water penetration and has an acrylic dome design designed to pull in more light earlier and later in the day, with a visible light transmittance value of 0.68. Other features include 100% diffused light without glares or hot spots, even in overcast conditions. The RetroLite daylighting system, specially designed to replace the Lite*Panl panel system, is available for retrofit applications to an MR-24 or CMR-24 roof system.
