The Caitewick Western Stables built their new western stable in 2010. The Caitewick Stables is well known to those who practice the Reining.
In recent years, the idea arose to make the stables more sustainable. In addition, the Caitewick Stables team experienced that it was dark in the stables, so the electrical lights were always turned on.
Because of the high demands they place on the climate and comfort for the horses, they only wanted to gain the benefits of daylight, without the disadvantages such as heating and glare.
24 Solatube daylight systems have been installed in the stables and the washing area, which distribute diffused daylight. The ceiling diffusers are neatly finished in the Dupanel ceiling. In addition, the daylight tubes feature INFRAREDuction technology, using a patented process to extract infrared wavelengths at the first bounce of light before they can be transferred through the tube, dissipating heat before it ever enters the building. Industry-leading daylight technology provides unparalleled natural light transmission, with minimal heat gain.
Manager at Caitewick Western Stables, Miranda Hendrikse, is extremely satisfied with the daylight that illuminates the stables with the Solatube daylight systems. There is really a noticeable improvement in the indoor climate.
