Daylight illumination technology
Daylight illumination is
significant because it makes a major contribution to physical well-being
and 'comfort'. It is also an essential element in production halls.
The level of daylight illumination is considered to be adequate
if the illumination of the darkest workstation is at least 60% of
required level of illumination from artificial light as specified
by the relevant standards.
When calculating the level of illumination, it is necessary to take
into account that daylight is only available during certain periods
of time on specific floors and at specific workstations due to daily
and seasonal fluctuation. This variable level of daylight illumination
is often viewed as advantageous and to be essential for certain
The range of GAL lighting components
/ systems now includes new, multifunctional elements for daylight
architecture (lighting, natural ventilation, natural smoke and heat
extraction). They provide evenly-distributed, dazzle-free daylight
illumination and are suitable for commercial, municipal and industrial
The large-dimensioned systems open up entirely
new design possibilities.
