Natural light is a simple way to dramatically save energy. Daylighting minimizes dependence on artificial light sources, reducing electricity and HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning) costs. Electrical lighting produces high levels of heat, whereas natural lighting generates virtually no heat when properly controlled. Exploiting natural light can save up to 75% of energy consumed in lighting buildings, as well as reducing cooling costs.
Nevertheless, daylighting design faces two big challenges: controlling glare and heat. A global leader in the design and manufacture of daylight systems with high thermal insulation properties and mechanical resistance, Danpal enables architects to harness natural resources in an environmentally responsible and cost-effective manner. Danpal®systems assure balanced thermal comfort, while their translucency ensures comfortably even light diffusion.
Danpal’s minimal maintenance solutions offer excellent control of energy consumption, resulting in substantial life cycle cost savings, and our ready-to-install systems reduce on-site labour time, particularly in open environments or problematic conditions.
