Designing daylight to the new EN 17037 with VELUX

  • 16 Aug 2019

VELUX has introduced a new whitepaper on using VELUX Modular Skylights to help meet the new European Standard for daylighting in buildings, EN 17037.

European Standard, EN 17037 is helping to change the focus of building design, and the role of glazing in those designs, to improve occupant comfort and overall energy efficiency.

The standard covers four areas of daylighting: daylight provision, assessment of the view out of windows, access to sunlight, and the prevention of glare. It also covers the need to provide glazed openings and well-distributed daylight to interior spaces, while reducing artificial lighting use, along with the balance between heat loss and solar gains.

VELUX’s Guide to Daylighting and EN 17037 covers:

– EN 17037 – what is it and why does it matter?
– The impact of daylight on building performance and occupant comfort
– Using VELUX Modular Skylight solutions to achieve good daylighting

You can download your free whitepaper here and learn more about using VELUX Modular Skylights to help meet the four areas of daylighting while also contributing to the building’s energy balance and ventilation strategy.
