A good climate pays off.

Fraunhofer Study

The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) has examined the influence of various types of roof glazing units on a typical industrial building’s interior heat buildup and brightness. ISE’s study compared PLEXIGLAS HEATSTOP? with different combinations of double acrylic-glass panels.

The number of skylights (openings in a building’s roof) was the pivotal factor in this investigation. Skylights admit light and thermal energy into buildings. Comparing combinations of materials (such as white/clear with PLEXIGLAS HEATSTOP?/clear) is meaningful only if light conditions in a building are identical. A relevant standard specifies that the daylight factor (ratio of indoor illuminance to outdoor illuminance) be at least 4 percent. ISE used this standard value in its study.
Because the combination of PLEXIGLAS HEATSTOP?/clear is less transparent than a white/clear skylight, artificial lighting must compensate for the difference in daylight.

Simulations took into account the variables of temperature and light concerning various climatic zones and different light conditions (cloudy, overcast, sunny, etc.).

The study’s findings can be summarized easily:
