Light is becoming a very important design element for office buildings. Studies show that when people live and work in a well lit environment, they are happier, healthier and more productive. Natural light:
- Lifts spirits, makes spaces appear larger and lessens demands on electricity.
- Reduces eyestrain, increases productivity and even decrease absenteeism in the workplace.
- Helps people function better in light-filled environments.
Reducing One of the Largest Business Costs: Energy
The US Government ENERGY STAR Buildings and Plants web site provides guidelines for energy management, a library of tools and resources, and commercial building design information.
Skylights and Sun Tunnels--Daylighting Solutions
Skylights have been available for years, but recent technological innovations plus accessories that help control the light they provide have made them an excellent choice for providing daylight beyond normal windows and doors. Daylighting through the roofs of commercial buildings provides many benefits that no other light source can offer. With VELUX commercial products you can provide optimal light distribution at the building's core while minimizing glare and enhancing your architectural designs.
Sun Tunnels provide exceptional lighting.The light output is incredible, providing as much as light can be expected from a skylight many times its size. A tubular skylight iis cost effective because they cost considerably less than other day lighting options such as windows and skylights, including both product and installation costs.
Installation of Sun Tunnels is fast, clean and easy. They require no structural reframing, tunneling, dry walling or painting. Their compact and flexible design allow them to be installed in just about any room, including rooms without direct roof access and smaller spaces where day lighting would usually not be an option.
There's An App For That
