Designed for high bay commercial facility applications, this tubular daylighting device features a 29″ diameter opening.
This online simulation tool enables facility managers to view the impact of proposed daylighting designs before construction, while also having the option of viewing “what if” alternatives.
The development of daylighting metrics has been the subject of considerable effort and debate, but no widely accepted metric has emerged to help recognize well-daylit buildings. Although simulation software exists to assist in daylight analysis, these programs are often overly complex and involve a high level of expertise. On the other hand, rule-of-thumb approaches that are often used to aid in the decision making process are based on overly simplified assumptions.
Public input to help shape the 2010 version of Standard 90.1 is being sought through 21 proposed addenda.
