Saw tooth rooflights – the ideal solution for glare-free daylight

Modern architects seek to create not only functional, but also aesthetically appealing environments. Saw tooth rooflights, which are effectively rows of monopitch rooflights, make it possible to do just that by combining ideal ambient lighting with soft, glare-free light.

Basic principle and structure

A saw tooth rooflight is similarly a series of contiguous monopitch rooflights, which is used primarily in industrial buildings. This distinctive roof structure allows for excellent room illumination, as the entire roof surface can be fitted with saw tooth rooflights, allowing daylight to be evenly distributed, creating a pleasant working environment.

The advantages of glare-free incident light

The glare-free incident light provided by the north-facing orientation of saw tooth rooflights is a distinctive feature of this type of roof structure. This can help increase productivity as workers are less affected by glare normally caused by direct sunlight.

Optimum room illumination with soft light

Furthermore, the even distribution of soft light coming through the saw tooth rooflights promotes a pleasant working atmosphere, which not only improves the well-being of employees, but also the aesthetics of the space itself.

A wide range of applications for saw tooth rooflights

Saw tooth rooflights have proved to be extremely useful, not only in industrial architecture, but also in various other areas, such as shopping centres and sports halls.

Use in assembly shops

Lighting quality

The quality of lighting is of crucial importance in assembly shops. Good quality lighting can help to reduce errors and accidents and improve safety in the workplace. Saw tooth rooflights offer the ideal solution, as they provide optimum room illumination.

Examples of successful installations

In practice, many companies have decided to install saw tooth rooflights to improve working conditions in their assembly shops, with considerable success, as reflected in improved employee satisfaction and productivity.

Use in shopping centres and sports halls

Aesthetic aspects

Aesthetic aspects play a major role in shopping centres and sports halls. Saw tooth rooflights can be used to good effect here thanks to their modern yet industrial look, as they create a pleasant ambience that invites you to linger while at the same time offering a bright and open atmosphere.

Contributing to customer satisfaction and the athletes’ experience

The pleasant light atmosphere created by saw tooth rooflights can have a positive impact on customer satisfaction in shopping centres and on the athletes’ experience in sports halls. A bright and friendly environment can encourage customers and visitors to linger longer, which can have a positive impact on business.
