Why schools benefit from insulated daylighting

The schools programme is being revitalised and architects are increasingly specifying the Kalwall translucent cladding and skylighting system for new and refurbishment projects. Aedas architects, for example, specified Kalwall in their clutch of stunning new schools designed for Knowsley Council. Today, daylight modelling enables architects to determine the ideal quantity of diffused daylight which, in combination with the wider use of automatically controlled artificial lighting, such as in sports halls (see below), reduces running costs and saves energy. Highly insulating Kalwall floods interiors with ‘museum-quality’ light which, as well as being glare and shadow free, exerts a unique influence on concentration and wellbeing and importantly, as schools confirm, on pupil behaviour and learning.
