Benefits of daylighting your retail space
Daylight requirements will vary dependent on the size and type of your retail space. But the benefits are universal. Where façade glazing isn’t present light will come through the roof or be artificial. Studies have shown daylight to improve mood, morale, reduce fatigue and increase productivity. High-level exposure to daylight also helps shoppers to feel alert and engaged.

Atrium roofs are popular designs for shopping and retail communal areas. Natural light spreads and can penetrate entries and facades of retail outlets. Rooflights can also bring satisfaction to employees. A connection with nature helps balance behavioral changes, improving energy levels and mood.
Daylight solutions for entire retail spaces
VELUX Commercial offers a complete range of daylight solutions for retail spaces of all types. Have a look at our case study to learn more about retail rooflight refurbishment at the Metrocentre in Gateshead, UK. The operator required shell retention to lower cost and cause minimal disruption to centre operations as access to public areas remained open throughout the project. VELUX Glazing panels were chosen because they could be tailored to suit the project and for their ability to be self-supporting.
