Colorcoat Technical Paper – Rooflights
I’ve just uploaded the new Technical Paper onto colorcoat-online. The Paper, entitled ‘Integrated lighting solutions for low energy buildings’ uses full-building energy modelling to assess the benefits provided by rooflights in large commercial and industrial buildings.
Rooflights can readily be incorporated into a pre-finished steel roofing system and when combined with an effective control system can help to minimise energy usage by providing natural lighting and useful solar gain to offset the increased energy losses through the increased area of low insulation.
The paper has been developed in conjunction with Oxford Brookes University and is available to download here
