Xella Nederland is a producer of sand-lime bricks, aerated concrete and dry building systems with the A-brands Silka, Ytong, Hebel and Fermacell in the Netherlands. The factory in Vuren mainly produces aerated concrete.
When renovating the different halls, one roof was placed over the different spaces. This gave the raw material preparation hall a height of 15 metres without windows and lighting was required for shift workers during the night.
The daylight professionals from Techcomlight prepared a lighting plan for this hall and then installed Solatubes of Ø 53 cm with the TechLED system. Thanks to the overall quality of the Solatube daylight systems including proprietary seals, no concrete dust enters the tubes and they continue to reflect optimal light levels.
I initially had my reservations, but the Solatubes give lots of light. Since the installation we have actually stopped wearing artificial lighting. ”And the employees? “We don’t hear from them. You can't get a better response.
