A new European Standard for daylighting in buildings, EN 17037, is helping change the focus of building design, and the role of glazing in those designs, to improve occupant comfort and overall energy efficiency.
EN 17037 covers four areas of daylighting: daylight provision, assessment of the view out of windows, access to sunlight, and the prevention of glare.
The standard covers the need to provide glazed openings and well distributed daylight to interior spaces, while reducing artificial lighting use, along with the balance between heat loss and solar gains.
