Effective Daylighting is Key in the Fast Growth Green Building Market

Study Links Workplace Daylight Exposure to Sleep, Activity, and Quality of Life

Daylight is generally acknowledged to be an absolute requirement for comfort and health in buildings. Our eyes are adapted to it, and studies show that environments characterized by daylight are the most liked, and probably the most healthy. Daylight does more than save energy; people prefer day lit spaces for many reasons. It is the best light source for color rendition, and its variability is pleasurable.

Access to the Natural Environment Increases Individual Productivity

Natural Daylighting

Overhead interior lighting accounts for a significant portion of overall energy used in a typical office building.  Daylight harvesting is  a popular strategy to generate savings in this energy-intensive end-use. In fact, daylighting is an energy efficient standard in sustainable office buildings, schools, and office buildings and health facilities.  SerraGlaze Daylight Redirecting Window Film can be an important part of the equation as an effective sidelighting solution as it:

Preserves the View (one of the essential functions of a window)
Increases the Penetration of Desirable Daylight into the Space
Manages the Glare (undesirable daylight)
& is Cost Effective
