Improve Architectural Designs with Daylighting
Solatube® Tubular Daylighting Devices assist in bringing light into dark and shaded places. Many buildings do not let in enough natural light for workers. Other times, the glare from the sun is so strong that people must keep blinds closed or shades drawn. Read more about how to add daylight while blocking heat and UV from entering a building.
Daylighting systems act to capture natural light from roofs. They reintroduce the natural light into residential and office space with tubes and reflective materials. People can adjust the system to let in as much or as little extra light as is needed. Daylighting systems can be placed at many spots in a ceiling. They do not negatively affect the roof during installation.
increases To productivity and comfort
Daylighting systems have a number of health benefits. Daylight exposure promotes health and well-being. Exposure to natural light during the work week encourages people to exercise more. In addition, daylight has a positive effect on an individual's mood, alertness and metabolism. The studies on daylight exposure examine receiving light during natural daylight hours. The key to benefiting from daylight exposure is working during the day. Learn more about the technology behind Solatube® lighting systems to understand how the tubes work even on cloudy days.
maintaining circadian rhythm
Cycles in the mind and body that occur in one day's time are called circadian rhythms. Daylighting systems helps workers improve sleeping and wakefulness patterns by allowing workers to maintain regular circadian rhythms. Daylighting systems can also help workers get over 45 minutes more sleep. In addition, the systems promote regular circulation and blood flow.
Solatube® lighting systems are particularly beneficial for individuals with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). The systems help individuals get the additional amount of bright light that they need. Our daylighting system disperses bright light around a living or work space with a diffuser. With the additional light, individuals are not as prone to depression.
Contributions to savings in energy costs
Daylighting systems save energy. They help a building not to be overlit and establish a light level appropriate for the space. The light let in through a daylighting system is sunlight, free energy with no charge. In addition, daylighting systems are adjustable. An individual can determine the size, number and location of openings. Daylighting systems have thermal insulation. They are designed to minimise heat loss or gain. They may also qualify a building for LEED certification or a green building designation.
