Industrial Roof Skylights

Replacing Aged Sky Lights

As pressure to save energy mounts, green architecture and building movement drive increased use of day-lighting, the use of natural light through roof skylights.
Evolving International building energy codes are expected to favour, or even mandate, the use of skylights in large flat-roof industrial buildings. Skylights can lower electric lighting bills by one-third or more, industry experts say.

Excellent day-lighting is provided by industrial roof skylights which have the potential to displace much artificial lighting, improving light quality, reducing heat generation and saving on energy costs.

Even under overcast conditions, the use of skylights can result in spaces that can be predominantly day-lit with little supplementary artificial lighting required. Additional energy needed for space heating and cooling because of thermal movement through larger window areas will be minimised.
