Multilight® Seamless Glazing Systems

Superior light transmission for Cutting-edge Elegance

Rainbow Skylight specializes in the design, fabrication, manufacturing and installation of the Multilight® Seamless Glazing System in South Africa. This unique multicelled polycarbonate glazing system that can be used in a variety of applications for designs that are both striking and functional, with a rich, non-industrial appeal. This lightweight, maintenance-free glazing system has excellent insulation properties and superior UV coating, enabling architects to introduce natural light into commercial building design, whilst experimenting with colour and form.

  • Endless design applications – including skylights, vertical cladding, facades and canopies

  • High impact and weather resistant

  • Superior light control – reduces glare whilst ensuring optimum lighting

  • Excellent insulation properties

The Architecture of Light


The sun: the best natural source of light and energy. Multilight® harnesses this inexhaustible source, providing exceptional quality of light.

Multilight’s® glazing material features multicell panels which offer customers the best combination of translucency and strength, transmitting an even diffusion of natural light, with superior durability and impact resistance.


The optimal solar and thermal balance

Multilight® provides exceptional quality of light. Its rich non-industrial visual appeal delivers thermal insulation and UV protection.

By filtering the amount of light – depending on the different daytime hours – Multilight® contributes to optimal efficiency and significant savings in energy costs.

The Multilight® Microcell structure:

Exceptional durability and thermal insulation

Multilight® Microcell panels are manufactured with unique and innovative extrusion technology, providing ten times more cells than the majority of other sheets on the market. The smaller spans between the rib supports give customers the best combination of translucency and strength. Multilight® Microcell panels are 100% leak proof, offering superior impact resistance and thermal insulation.

Superior light diffusion

The Microcell structure transmits an even diffusion of natural
light, producing a rich look. Specifically designed for architectural daylight applications, the tight spacing between the ribs produces a superior quality of light, offering unique iridescence -
reflecting and dispersing light in a way unmatched by any other material. Multilight® Microcell panels are available in a range of thicknesses and widths.

System benefits
• 100% leak proof

High impact and weather resistance

Due to the tightness between the vertical supports, Microcell
offers the 
highest resistance to impact and hail damage.
The high concentration of cells provides Multilight®
with improved mechanical properties and rigidity.

• Reinforced safety gauge
• Improved inertia for improved lightness
• The very best air and water tightness available
