Continuous rooflights provide daylight and smoke and heat exhaust ventilation

In Siegen, Germany, at the site of Erich Schäfer GmbH & Co, a warehouse was extended in 2020. This manufacturer of conveyor technology and cranes required additional space to accommodate more machinery as the company sought to expand operations.

A rooflight installation to bring light to industrial spaces

The building extension was designed by architect Oliver Schmidt Betzdorf and included the addition of a row of modules to a flat-roofed warehouse. Like the existing hall, daylight enters the building from above. The decision was made to use a fully prefabricated continuous rooflight system.

The Vario Norm system allows natural light to pour in from above, filling the building with light, while optimizing illumination in spaces where heavy machinery is in constant use throughout the day.

Natural light to illuminate operations and ventilation to remove unwanted fumes

Prefabrication means the continuous rooflight system was quick and easy to install, reducing time spent on the roof. The extension also includes smoke, heat and exhaust ventilation (SHEV) to help remove unwanted fumes and smoke in the event of a fire.

The result is a safer working environment for staff using heavy machinery, and maximum light exposure evenly distributed throughout the warehouse.
