Daylighting has become one of the fastest growing green building strategies in the last few years due to its simple application, significant cost savings and its ability to create healthy, enjoyable work and living spaces. This course is designed to give an overview of how to achieve sustainable design goals with tubular daylighting devices. Learn about the latest advanced optical daylighting technology and the product category Tubular Daylighting Device (TDD) which makes daylighting a space as easy as applying traditional lighting equipment. After a brief overview of typical daylighting strategies and key energy and human performance-based reasons for daylighting todays buildings, the audience is introduced to the three technology zones that are common to every TDD. Commercially available component technologies are compared, allowing the designer to make informed decisions when choosing the appropriate TDD technology for their application.
