White paper explores ‘Daylighting and Flooring: Don’t Overlook the Issue of Reflectivity’

Home Press Release White paper explores ‘Daylighting and Flooring: Don’t Overlook the Issue of Reflectivity’

Lancaster, Pa.—A new white paper, “Daylighting and Flooring: Don’t Overlook the Issue of Reflectivity,” issued by Armstrong Commercial Flooring, provides insight on leveraging the reflectivity of flooring for architects and administrators who are seeking opportunities to reduce energy consumption in commercial structures. Daylighting is increasingly becoming a green building design strategy and LEED v4 now recognizes the benefits of high light reflective flooring in Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ).

Research suggests that boosting the reflectance values of flooring will allow more light from either artificial or natural sources to bounce off the floor and enable the available light to illuminate the space more efficiently.

“It is an issue that most facility managers are just beginning to think about,” said Amy Costello, sustainability manager, Armstrong. “They realize the flooring can have an effect on daylighting. It’s not the primary factor in daylighting, but it’s something to consider.”
