Everyone thrives in sunlight, but the most of us spend 90% of our time awake indoors. We often sit deep into the building, far away from windows, preventing us to enjoy the benefits from the healthy natural light. Wellbeing and health are affected negatively and we do not perform as well as we could.

Benefits With Natural Light

Parans’ solutions are a contributor in all sustainable construction projects, both regarding humans and the environment aspect.

It is shown in studies that natural light has a good and positive impact on our health. We feel better and thrive better in indoor environments filled with natural light. The learning capability increases and we become more productive. The natural light has an important impact on the human production of hormones that keep us awake at the right time and make us sleep well during the night.

Today more than half of the world’s population lives in cities and the urbanization creates today a huge interest to densify the cities, and at many places in the world this means that the daylight will be a challenge. Deep buildings, dens block structure, increased demands on energy efficiency and older buildings to be adapted to new types of uses means that more and more people risk ending up in living and working environments with insufficient daylight.

Parans allows the effective utilization of deep buildings and can be an easy and cost-effective alternative to major engagement in the property such as light shafts and complex retrofits. Good access for natural light means also less need for electrical light, which can mean energy savings. It could also be a way to fulfil daylight requirements.

The green certification systems such

as LEED, BREEAM and WELL Building Standard rewards the use of natural light. Parans’ solutions can contribute to gain points within these systems which in the end also means an increased property value and is a question about employer branding.

Building Types And Typical Spaces

The Parans system is mainly requested within the commercial and the public sectors for both retrofit as well as new building projects. Buildings for office buildings, health care buildings and buildings for education are our most common building types, but the Parans system is not limited to them. Below you see the most common building types and spaces where the Parans light is used.

Extend Your Windows

Via the Parans system with thin, flexible fiber optic cables you can get sunlight far from windows and deep into the building where the sunlight from windows cannot reach. You are also able to balance the light dynamic in the room with light from the windows. As common as it is to have windows along the facade and that way add natural light, as common it could be to have sunlight via a Parans system deeper into the building.

The sunlight could be spread in a variety of ways in different environments. We choose to show the ways we believe are the most natural ones to spread the sunlight indoors:

Point Light

spreads the sunlight over a large surface.

Ceiling Light

the sunlight is spread over the ceiling which gives an illusion that the light comes through an open shaft.

Wall Light

the light is spread over a larger wall area like a waterfall or in Parans’ case like a light fall.

Ambient/diffused Light

when this is preferred and gives the possibility of combining the natural light with artificial light.
