Halio Provides Daylight for Seniors at Belgium’s Avondzon Residential Care Center

Avondzon, a 160-bed residential care center in Erpe-Mere, Belgium, has installed Halio smart-tinting glass. Developed and manufactured by Kinestral Technologies Inc., Halio was used for 132 skylights to create a “glass roof” that delivers maximum daylight without sacrificing the comfort of residents and staff.

Light was a key consideration in the design of Avondzon’s new wing. Research has shown that seniors need three to five times more light than younger people because a lack of light stimuli can disrupt their biological clocks. Maximum exposure to daylight during the day can help older adults sleep better at night.
