FALCONER, N.Y. — Truck-Lite has developed a lensed product called the Sky-Lite, allotting external sunlight to assist with additional trailer interior lighting without the need for added power or wiring, the company has announced.

The polycarbonate product was designed to only mount on the upper sidewall of a trailer or body, giving a small windowed appearance and allowing natural light to enter the trailer and increase daytime visibility, according to Bob Ives, vice president of marketing.

“The Sky-Lite’s addition, coupled with our existing LED interior trailer lighting will enable fleets to run energy efficient units day and night.” Ives said. “Increased cargo visibility is key to fleets, and the use of our Sky-Lite encourages a safe work environment as well as loading and unloading accuracy.”

Truck-Lite Sky-Lite part numbers are 40270C (for 0.05-inch aluminum sheets), 40271C (for 0.31-inch composite panels) and 40275C (for 0.25-inch composite panels).
