Skylights

Reduce the need for artificial lighting

Daylighting through the introduction of skylights in your building reduces the need to use energy sapping artificial lighting. At the same time, it can enliven a building by bringing the outdoor environment indoors, improve safety, generate warmth and ultimately improve the living experience of the building inhabitants. Daylighting includes two broad categories; side lighting and/or top lighting.

Skylight placement and the type of glazing used in sky lighting are key to unlocking maximum light performance for a specified area. It must be noted that glazing serves two different purposes: providing a view out and allowing daylight in. The quantity and directionality of light provided by the daylighting system should be appropriate for the visual task.

Daylighting must be integrated with interior layout design, décor and electric lighting. Your skylights must work together with the mix of the correct lighting technology, temperature control and daylight resource. The daylight zones must be regulated to ensure that energy savings from the daylighting system are realized. The electric lighting system may be either dimmed or automatically switched off when the desired levels of illumination are achieved from natural light.
