Sky Lights

Skylights are architectural elements that are designed to bring natural light into indoor spaces by incorporating windows or openings in the roof or ceiling. They are typically made of glass or other transparent or translucent materials and can be fixed or operable (able to be opened and closed).

When installing skylights, it’s important to consider factors such as the orientation and location of the skylight, the potential for glare or excessive heat gain, and the need for appropriate shading or glazing options. Proper installation and insulation are also crucial to prevent leaks or energy loss.

Overall, skylights offer a way to incorporate natural light, ventilation, and visual appeal into indoor spaces, enhancing the comfort, aesthetic, and energy efficiency of buildings.

Natural Light: Skylights allow natural sunlight to enter the space from above, creating a bright and welcoming atmosphere. Natural light has been associated with numerous benefits, including improved mood, increased productivity, and reduced reliance on artificial lighting during daylight hours.

Energy Efficiency: Skylights can help reduce energy consumption by reducing the need for electric lighting during the day. Properly designed and installed skylights can maximize the amount of natural light while minimizing heat gain or loss, contributing to energy efficiency in buildings.

Ventilation: Some skylights are designed to be operable, allowing fresh air to flow into the space. This natural ventilation can help improve indoor air quality, regulate temperature, and reduce reliance on mechanical cooling systems.

Aesthetics and Visual Appeal: Skylights can enhance the aesthetic appeal of both the interior and exterior of a building. They provide a connection to the outdoors and can offer views of the sky, trees, or other natural elements, creating a sense of openness and beauty.

Privacy and Views: Skylights can bring natural light into areas that may not be suitable for traditional windows due to privacy concerns or limited wall space. They offer an opportunity to introduce light into spaces such as bathrooms, closets, or corridors without compromising privacy.

Health Benefits: Exposure to natural light, particularly in the morning, has been linked to regulating the body’s internal clock, known as the circadian rhythm. This can have positive effects on sleep patterns, mood, and overall well-being.
