was used to create 6m diameter circular skylights, allowing natural
light into the interior of this 'serviced shed'. To control glare, large
turnable light diffusers, manufactured from a lightweight fabric, were
installed immediately below the cushions. Using these elements, natural
light can be directed around the structure.
Due to stringent requirements for ambient noise levels over the workspaces, Vector Foiltec's patented 'rain suppressors' were also installed over the top of the Texlon cushions. These reduced the 'drum' effect caused by heavy rainfall to acceptable levels. These suppressors are not usually required for projects, but can be supplied on request.
