Next generation Roof Covering
Welcome to Lightroof Systems
Lightroof Systems is your supplier of choice for daylight systems for agricultural and industrial buildings. Our systems our sold throughout the world either by our sales partners in various countries or directly by our main branch in the Netherlands. Our core business consists of the special heat-reflecting systems known as ‘Heat Guard Light Panels’, which are available in corrugated or flat form combined with aluminium sections specifically developed for this purpose.

We have developed these systems based on the vision that Daylight is Healthy. Scientific research has shown that daylight contributes to better welfare for both people and animals. Daylight gives us more energy and provides for more pleasant working conditions. Daylight influences the immune system, as a result of which people and animals are less susceptible to diseases and viruses. Daylight for your animals means healthier animals that live longer and thus can produce over a longer period of time. Daylight: it’s always there, and it costs nothing, so use it to your advantage…
The Heat Guard light panels are produced with an aluminium pigment incorporated into the polycarbonate. This pigment ensures that solar radiation heat is reflected. Depending on the desired light transmission and heat protection, the roof panels are available in four versions: Corrugated sheets 177/51 types: HG25, HG50 and HG100. Flat implementation: HG Flat – 32 mm, 16% light transmission. Some key characteristics of our Heat Guard light panels include: The translucent Lightroof Systems panels are stronger than fibre-cement corrugated sheets and are easy to install due to their light weight. The translucent panels are also extremely well suited for roof renovation and new buildings. We are also accustomed to supplying the panels in combination with sandwich panels or solar panels. The panels are thermally insulated, classified in fire protection category B-s1-d0, and are impact and hail-resistant. The profile is the same as corrugated sheet 177/51 with a 6.5 wave profile. Installing many light panels and therefore making increased use of daylight will reduce your energy bill because you will need less artificial light. Naturally, the reduced energy consumption benefits the climate, as well as animal welfare. The panels are protected using a special UV-resistant coextrusion layer. Adding aluminium pigment prevents direct sunlight from entering. Conversely, it also reduces the amount of artificial light that escapes to the outside, thus reducing light pollution. Our HG 32 mm is very popular for creating natural lighting sections in roofs or walls because it prevents the discolouration of stored products by filtering out direct sunlight. The high insulation value also is another plus point. Our folders contain additional specifications. These folders can be downloaded from the pages under the ‘Products’ button.

The Importance of Light for Dairy Cattle
Scientific research has shown that optimum light conditions are essential for the well-being and health of dairy cattle and their production1. Light affects the performance of dairy cattle at various levels. The PDF below summarises the key findings.
