architects drawing of facade

The Translucent Façade and Roof is the polycarbonate glazing system featuring building protection, daylight and ventilation for installation in industrial buildings such as warehouses and halls. Suitable for application in both façades and roofs, the system is designed to illuminate large areas with daylight whilst protecting the building from weather damage with its high stability in driving rain, hail and during storms, alongside the highest airtightness class. 

Features and benefits

Quality

• CE marked quality according to EN 14351 with CE Label product declaration

• Factory production approved to ISO 9001:2015, which means the quality products are manufactured to a consistently high standard

• High level of stability and safety under wind, driving rain, hail and snow loads

• Manufactured, installed and guaranteed by LAMILUX - avoiding split responsibility between manufacturer, fabricator and installer

Design

• Thermally broken aluminium profiles free of thermal bridges to minimise condensation

• Enhanced isothermal characteristics in the overall construction – resulting in maximum energy efficiency and thermal insulation

• Innovative and made-to-order solutions to suit project specific building envelope dimensions

• Frame profiles in mill finish as standard with the option of powder coating to your choice of RAL colour

Comfort

• Variety of polycarbonate glazing options to meet your required light transmission and sound insulation values 

• Optional integrated opening flaps serve both as natural ventilation as well as smoke and heat exhaust ventilation

• Excellent heat transmission values supporting whole product efficiency 

• SHEV and ventilation openings can be installed directly next to each other to give continuous natural and smoke ventilation with the same surface

Use

• Suitable for illuminating large areas with daylight for installation in industrial buildings such as warehouses and halls

• Designed to improve both natural daylight alongside fresh air supply with daily ventilation and improved safety with integrated certified smoke extraction

• Customised for a variety of installation variants including in the façade or on the roof

• Ideal as a continuous run to reduce costs for electric lighting

Design flexibility

The Translucent Façade and Roof is a contemporary panel glazing system suitable to improve natural daylight, ventilation and aesthetics within renovation and new construction industrial buildings. The innovative and made-to-order solution is available in panel lengths up to 12 meters. Due to its modular design it offers flexibility in size for both height and spanning requirements. Design flexibility is also available with colour, and function variants. The complete assembly can be installed to any load bearing material within your chosen installation position whether it be incorporated in the reveal or as a front façade, as well as installed as a lean-to roof or a ridged roof

Safety and function

The Translucent Façade and Roof from LAMILUX boasts audited watertightness under heavy rain and storm alongside high levels of wind resistance and the highest airtightness class values according to EN12207 (class 4.) Approved in accordance with the European Technical Approval, the daylighting system is multifunctional. Not only flooding the industrial building with natural daylight, but also offering a range of optional integrated ventilation flaps for both natural and smoke ventilation. The optional integrated LAMILUX Smoke Lift Vents open as a single or double opening into the SHEV position in under 60 seconds and are certified to EN 12101-2

 

Health, wellbeing and productivity

The design of a workplace has a material impact on the health, wellbeing and productivity of its occupants. Up to a third of employees feel they don’t get enough natural light in their workspace and it is common for employees to feel tired and unmotivated because of the lack of light. The LAMILUX Translucent Façade and Roof provides an even distribution of high-quality light transmission and daily ventilation. This results in a positive impact on the wellbeing of employees and ultimately on their productivity levels

Design details

Translucent Façade and Roof technical design characteristics


Energy efficiency

The Translucent Façade and Roof from LAMILUX is the multiwall polycarbonate glazed, aluminium framed Façade and rooflight system with maximum energy efficiency and thermal insulation. With certification to support the systems high level of stability and safety under wind, driving rain, hail and snow loads, the rooflight system also benefits from enhanced isothermal characteristics in the overall construction. The unrivalled performance of this range results in no condensation alongside excellent air tightness values. The thermally broken “isothermally balanced” aluminium frames feature optimally aligned 10° isotherm line. This means that the thermally broken 10° isothermal line remains within the structure (see below) for consistent heat insulation without any weak spots, reducing condensation, mould and bacteria on the inside of the construction.
