The 3M™ Sunlight Delivery System is currently being developed by 3M Architectural Markets. This new energy efficient daylighting solution for commercial buildings helps bring sunlight into areas that weren't previously possible. This sophisticated system combines mulitple technologies to bring sunlight deep into interior spaces and provides consistent light levels throughout the day.
These walls concepts are made with three bands stacked on top of one another; each band has a side emitting diffused light, and the other side is covered with 3M™ DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes. The panels can emit light from one side or both, depending on how the three bands are combined. The emitting side of each band may also be finished with a translucent DI-NOC design for a unique look.

The marketing offices of a Chicago manufacturing company are to be housed in a two-story factory building constructed in the 1950’s. The architect wants to keep the raw, industrial look of the place, combining it with high-tech equipment and furniture to create a nice visual contrast.
She doesn’t want to cover the reinforced concrete beams on the ceiling with anything false, so she’s looking for an efficient, sustainable free-standing lighting system without wires.
Fortunately, she knows that 3M Architectural Markets has developed a system for conveying sunlight into the core parts of a building. She plans to place a series of sun collectors on the roof and – via 3M's light ducts – bring sunlight to the ground floor, where the intrinsic properties of natural light will improve employee productivity.
3M Architectural Markets also provides:
Light Path Concept, a new modular office lighting concept that diffuses artificial light to provide the same qualities as sunlight
3M™ Wall Panel System featuring DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes that help the architect differentiate various office areas (executive offices, work areas, boardroom, etc.)
3M™ DI-NOC™ PWF-500™ Projection Whiteboard Finish that provides functional, yet tasteful, solutions for office presentations and visual aids
DI-NOC™ Architectural Finishes especially suited for refurbishment of existing construction
