This standard is intended to allow a fast, approximate sizing of the appropriate ratio of transparent surfaces to the total ceiling space in rooms with rooflights.
The numerous parameters influencing the dimensioning of rooflights are largely eliminated by specifying representative default values in Clause 5, making a comparison of various rooflight shapes possible and allowing the approximation of roof constructions that is often sufficient in practice.
DIN 5034-3 describes a method for the precise calculation of illumination provided by daylight in rooms with rooflights.
