Artificial lighting is one of the largest sources of energy consumption in commercial and industrial buildings. Utilizing skylights has been shown to significantly reduce energy costs through the benefits of daylighting.
To maintain structural integrity and weather tightness, specially designed skylights are available for the Astron LPR1000 roof system (> 6 % slope). Astron engineered roof systems provide an integrated effective daylighting solution for your project. Every accessory and opening is fully engineered in our factories, so there’s no necessity for improvisation on the jobsite. Every accessory is designed to work as a part of a complete, weather tight roof system, eliminating leaks and maintenance problems.
Skylights bring natural lighting inside your building. Natural daylight is essential for the well-being and the efficiency of building occupants. Depending on the translucent panel location, natural lighting can be created so that it is either equally distributed or specific to one area. Translucent panels are the most cost effective way of introducing light into a building.
Single translucent panels:
Covering width: 1000 mm Usual length: ± 3000 mm (2 purlin spacings); or multiples of 1.5 m, with a minimum length of 3m, can be supplied Weight: ±2.8 kg/m² Light transmission: 76 % Ageing properties: material tested according to EN 1013 §5.5.2
Double translucent panels:
The double translucent panel has a polyester exterior skin with Astron LPR1000 profile; underneath there is a 10 mm polycarbonate sheet. Covering width: 1000 mm Covering length: ± 3000 mm (2 purlin spacings) depending on the roof slope Weight: ± 5 kg Thermal resistance: U = 2.5W/m²K Light transmission: 76 % Ageing properties: material tested according to EN 1013 §5.5.2
Glass-fibre reinforced polyester (GRP), protected on its outer surface by a gel coat or with a polyester film. For double skin, additional 10mm polycarbonate sheet (PCA) assembled in factory.
Colourless Mechanical Performance Impact resistance: 1200 joules (sand bag test)
Every accessory is designed to work as a part of a complete, weather tight roof system, eliminating leaks and maintenance problems. Easy erection, the installation is done by our own team, specialized sub-contractors are not required.
Your roof has been designed and fabricated for a low-maintenance service life. The use of high quality raw materials and accessories and high engineering and manufacturing specifications minimize the effects of weather and other environmental factors.
