“It is important to us that we develop products that deliver health and aesthetic benefits alongside the requirements of specifiers and contractors and facilities managers,” said Jim. “This modular roof lights range provides the perfect solution diffusing sound and natural light to manage temperature and comfort of the building for users.”
