Following the installation and construction of ACS’s new facility, the high fabric performance achieved by Kingspan Insulated Panel products, as well as the natural and low-energy lighting system in place from Kingspan Light + Air, ensured that the facility is comfortable, healthy and helps to reduce overall running costs.
The Day-Lite Kapture rooflights are designed to be integrated with all Kingspan insulated roof panels as well as other roof systems. As a result of the partnership between divisions, Kapture rooflights were easily integrated with the trapezoidal roof and helped to fill the internal space with natural light.
The triple-glazed polycarbonate layers, along with the shape of the rooflight, has been specifically designed to capture the maximum level of light. This helps the facility to maximise on both light transmission and diffusion, even at low angles. These rooflights, implemented with a low-energy LED lighting system with energy efficient controls, blend the perfect balance between natural light integration and artificial lighting. Not only does this help to reduce overall running costs, as the energy efficient controls monitor when the lights can be reduced or turned off, but it also allows workers at the facility to benefit from natural daylighting, which is known to have health and safety benefits and to increase productivity.
