Nucor’s prismatic skylights provide 100% diffusion and 35% more light than conventional skylights. The design virtually eliminates glares and hotspots in buildings.

Nucor’s Ecospan mezzanines have components with high strength-to-weight ratios, which allows for shallow floor depths, longer spans, enhanced performance and greater rigidity. The mezzanines are made with 97% recycled steel joists and 70% recycled steel decking.

Installation is quick and easy thanks to the company’s patented screw-down Shearflex HD Connector. Each connector is placed in less than 10 seconds.

The lightweight, shallow composite joints allow for greater rigidity and are a more economical solution.

Nucor’s mezzanines also have a sound transmission classification rating of 57 in tests conducted by the Riverbank Acoustic Laboratory.
