The Apollo light pipe is a sealed skylight system comprising a dome, a pipe and a diffuser. Designed to capture and control light with reflective materials, the unit harvests sunlight, focusing the light through the dome and down to the facility floor. Internal and external seals keep warm, moist air from entering the tubular unit and condensing in the Acrylite FF dome, and a seamless, one-piece aluminum flashing construction is non-corrosive and rust-resistant. The large-diameter aperture is made of highly polished material to provide 98% total reflectivity.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
