Recent Water Treatment Plant Projects Featuring Translucent Daylighting

The privacy and savings provided by translucent panel systems make them a strategic solution for daylighting water treatment plants, pump stations, and other municipal facilities that house large equipment. By limiting views of the building’s interior from the outside, translucent daylighting keeps the facility and its equipment private and protected from trespassers who are unable to see who or what is inside. This added security may be especially important for pump stations or other buildings that are frequently left unattended.

Translucent panel skylights and wall systems also use diffuse natural daylight to illuminate interior spaces while still shielding plant workers and equipment from disruptive heat gain and glare. Not only does translucent daylighting reduce the need for artificial lighting, but by minimizing thermal transfer through the system, plant operators can more easily maintain suitable interior temperatures for both man and machinery without increasing HVAC costs.
