Kingspan Day-Lite solutions and Rooftop
Solar PV were incorporated into the roof
system, making the most of the vast surface
area. These elements helped the project meet
its pledge to include 10% daylight into the
warehouse space and to meet at least 10%
of the energy demand with renewable energy
Kingspan Day-Lite Trapezoidal rooflights were seamlessly integrated between the Trapezoidal Roof panels, ensuring lasting performance. Kingspan Day-Lite Trapezoidal rooflights are precision extruded to ensure a superior fit with Trapezoidal Roof panels, providing enhanced building airtightness. They have superior resistance to UV degradation, resulting in excellent long-term light transmission and structural performance, and have a U-value of 1.6W/m²K. These translucent polycarbonate panels allow natural light to rush into the building, creating a bright, healthy and cost-effective workspace below.
However, at night or on overcast days, it was important for the facility to be lit as effectively and efficiently as possible to meet the required standards for BREEAM ‘Very Good’ and keep operation costs low. Given the large roof area and the demand for electricity, solar power generation was prioritised as one of the most appropriate renewable energy generation techniques. The 1680 module solar array of 437kWp of Kingspan Rooftop Solar PV panels will supply electricity straight to the building for immediate use. The expected annual generation is 387,182kWhrs. This bespoke, compliant and cohesive specification was designed and delivered all in-house by one team, ensuring complete synergy between
products and layouts to achieve the optimum results.
