Daylight is our business
THE 1.001 BENEFITS OF DAYLIGHT
There are very few things that are free and offer as many benefits as daylight.
DAYLIGHT ENHANCES OUR SENSE OF WELLBEING
Daylight is a gift from the heavens. It makes us feel good. Did you know that artificial light upsets our biorhythms, leading to mood swings? By contrast, daylight is great for our natural constitution. Providing enough daylight - through a skylight - is therefore essential to get through the day feeling well-balanced and avoiding fatigue.
DAYLIGHT GIVES US BOTH ENERGY AND REST
Daylight comes in various colours and intensities. For example, the rising sun stimulates the production of cortisol, a hormone that makes us more active and improves our concentration. Towards the end of the day, daylight becomes less intense and our bodies start producing melatonin. That hormone makes us restful and prepares us for the coming night. With a skylight you therefore benefit from all types of light.
DAYLIGHT IS ENTIRELY FREE
Daylight is free - it doesn’t come from a power outlet. A skylight dramatically reduces the need for artificial light in your home or workplace. That is not only good for the environment but also greatly reduces your electricity bill.
DAYLIGHT IS SAFER
In the office, in a workshop or at home, you work a lot more safely with daylight from a skylight. That is because blanket lighting from above is three times stronger than light aimed vertically downwards. By ensuring that there aren’t any dark corners, you can prevent an accident.
