Horizon Systems have been installing 33 monodruaght sunpipes in a new care home. Made up of individual flats in Kent. each flat has between two and seven 450mm Diamond dome sun pipes.
The home has been carefully designed to maintain the independence of it’s elderly residents. We have worked closely with the main contractor installing in stages to fit in with the build programme. The monodraught sun pipes at 98% reflectivity will fill each flat with daylight, meaning there will be less falls and trips as well as less eye strain for the residents. In addition the extra daylight will not only reduce energy bills but is excellent at reducing Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
This project is still on going, this has been a great project for Horizon to be involved in and we look forward to posting the finished interiors on our future news section. Now theres something to smile about!
