Benefits of Having a Roof Light System In Commercial & Industrial Buildings

Many commercial and industrial buildings are opting to include roof light systems into their buildings, and for good reason. There are a range of advantages to having a roof light system installed within your commercial or industrial building.

Energy Efficient

Reducing the cost of energy bills is something every business could benefit from and installing a roof light system is something that could help do this. Because roof light systems allow natural light to shine through into the building, it reduces the need to rely on artificial lighting. Using a renewable, clean and natural source of light can not only help to save money, but it reduces the impact excess energy consumption has on the environment, making your business more eco-friendly.

Improved Health and Wellbeing

It is widely accepted that exposure to natural sunlight can improve our health and wellbeing. Not only does it give us the essential vitamin D, which is needed for healthy bones, teeth and muscle, exposure to natural sunlight helps strengthen our immune system and helps regulate our sleep patterns.

Conversely, workers who are exposed to nothing but artificial lights during working hours can become lethargic, irritable and can often get headaches.

By having roof light systems installed in your building, you can increase the health and wellbeing of your employees, as well as helping to maximise work productivity.


A lot of businesses who work with sensitive materials or need to maintain a modicum of privacy because of the nature of their work, have to sacrifice window space and in turn, access to natural light because of it. However, roof light systems allow buildings to have access to natural light whilst still maintaining a high level of privacy.

Here at NWIR, we can install new roof lights on both flat and pitched roofs. If you’re looking for roof lights replacement on your commercial or industrial roof contact us today 0800 046 1500.
