    Educational Buildings
    (Schools, Colleges and Universities)

    arrow Back to applications 22nd July 2019

    Educational buildings such as Schools, Colleges and Universities thrive with the addition of extra light. As studies have shown, much like an office building, more light not only benefits the students and faculty with a heightened sense of wellbeing, but promotes better learning and productiveness which many educational facilities are becoming more aware of every year.

    Creating an environment where future generations can flourish is so important to Sunsquare, which is why we jump at the chance to be a part of a such a projects.


    The versatility of our standard range of products combined with the creativeness of our bespoke design team allows us to exceed the requirements of our educational customers, giving them the opportunity to think outside of the box to create something truly spectacular for teachers and students.


    Our products have been used on a diverse range of projects, from walk-on cat-walks for fashion colleges to vast areas of glazing over reception halls and study halls.


    For more practical projects, Access rooflights have been installed above stairwells for maintenance purposes which has proved particularly popular with educational building. We can even create electric opening versions or manual opening versions with a secure internal lock to prevent unwanted access, keeping the establishment safe 24 hours a day, 7 days week.


    Our range of products also work well for large rooms over 6 metres with vertical windows which struggle to get the right levels of natural light. More often than not, rooflights are used in association with vertical glazing to improve the levels of light within the space. Educational buildings can start to bid farewell to spaces with interfering light levels during exams and lectures.


    With Sunsquare’s sleek design and high performance range of rooflights means that the leaky Georgian single glazed rooflights of the past that used to feature in schools and universities for decades can soon be gone.
