Use of natural lighting in buildings brings about many financial and health benefits. As a result, a greater number of buildings are becoming glass towers. Natural lighting helps to reduce the cost of interior lighting. When well directed, natural lighting produces a soothing environment, thus improving the physiological health of the occupants.
However, the use of glass suffers from several disadvantages, such as the transmission of heat and glare.RongZongHospitalinTaipei,Taiwan, was one such establishment facing these issues.
The management of Rong Zong Military Hospital requested for a solution to their problem. Hüper Optik® Taiwan was called in to solve their problem. Patient and staff comfort needed to be improved, and glare had to be reduced without creating glass “mirrors”. Hüper Optik®’s Ceramic 30 provided the ideal solution forRongZongHospital, helping to cut the heat, reduce the glare, and yet allow ample natural light to enter the building. In addition, the view was enhanced by the natural look of the film.
