Daylighting is the design of buildings to leverage natural light from the sun for interior illumination. On average commercial buildings, electric lighting accounts for a staggering 35-50% of the total electrical energy consumption. Many buildings can see total energy costs reduced by as much as one-third through the optimal integration of daylighting strategies.
The picture snapped is following the install of SerraGlaze Daylight Redirecting Film on the first of three windows in a warehouse. Already there’s quite a bit of light (90% efficient) passing through up to the ceiling then diffused downward. Great natural lighting for those spaces which are usually 100% lit by electric lighting. Employees have better light to work by making safer work conditions. The customer loves it!
Would you have warehouse that could benefit from free natural daylight?
