Keep reading to learn more about walkable skylights and the benefits of these installations.

Health Benefits

Skylights have been used in building design for centuries as a way to extend the reach of sunlight. When installed in a large opening on a roof, a skylight helps light facilities maximize natural daylight. In fact, a skylight allows in up to 5 times more natural light than a regular window.

What does this mean for your or your occupants’ health? Natural light is shown to have numerous health benefits for the human body. Not only does it help people be happier, healthier, and calmer, but it also is shown to significantly increase productivity levels.

Energy and Cash Savings

Skylights significantly increase the amount of natural light that is able to penetrate throughout your facility. In comparison to incandescent light, sunlight through a 14” skylight is equivalent to a 461 watts electric light bulk. Even on a cloudy day, a skylight would give no less than 100 watts of equivalent sunlight energy.

The addition of a skylight as a light source would minimize your facility’s use of natural electrical lights. Not only is this environmentally friendly, but it will also help you save on utility bills.

Design Benefits

Beyond health and energy benefits, a walkable skylight provides a unique and innovative design element to your facility. With the addition of a walkable skylight, your building is immediately transformed into a sleek and modern facility.

At Greenlite Glass, we provide all the materials you need to customize your walkable skylight to your design needs and preferences. Our glass materials are created to meet any structural or aesthetic need, giving you your choice of texture, screenprint patterns, and colour.

Seamlessly Helps You Divide The Workspace

In comparison to permanent walls, fire-rated curtain walls are a more economical way to create different work enclosures within a large facility. Not only do they allow for fire resistance and design flexibility, but these curtain walls also allow facilities to keep dust, debris, and noise contained within their designated areas. Depending on what industry your facility is in, this is a very important factor to keep in mind when ensuring the safety of your employees and/or occupants.

At Greenlite, our experienced consultants suggest implementing VDS curtain walls to help you seamlessly divide your workplace. With streamlined aesthetic, clean lines, and tight tolerances, the VDS curtain walls will provide your facility with a high degree of design flexibility, aesthetic appeal and security.

With an increased supply of natural light and exceptional thermal performance, facilities will gain control over their energy consumption and notice a significant improvement in cost overtime.
