Nano-prismatic Technology

The Kingspan Day-Lite Kapture rooflight features a polycarbonate layer made up of microscopic prisms. These ‘nanoprisms’ disperse light far more efficiently than conventional pigmented diffusion approaches and enable daylighting to be predictably modelled, like a light fitting.

Opening your Day-Lite Kapture Smoke Vent

The natural smoke and heat extraction system is managed via a 24v / 48v electric SHEV actuator, with a 165° opening angle. 

The opener is triggered, depending on the temperature, at 68°C automatically or via manual triggering at emergency triggering stations.
