Day Lighting

Solatube, a pioneer in tubular day lighting devices, has launched the solatube Day lighting System, consisting of the 160 DS, illuminating up to 200sq.ft. and the 290 DS, illuminating up to 300sq.ft. – enabling daylight to be delivered to interior spaces.

Why daylight?
Without the sun, there would be no life as we know it. The sun works to create the food we eat and the air we breathe. It is no wonder that the natural light that the sun produces is so important to the quality of the life we live.
Natural light lifts spirits, makes spaces appear larger, and reveals our world in its true color.
Beyond its aesthetic appeal, it also reduces eyestrain, increases our productivity, and lessens electrical demand. Unfortunately, today's buildings within which we reside rarely have enough natural light.
But now, it's possible to change our buildings with affordable, yet highly advanced skylights. Using a revolutionary, innovative design, you can capture sunlight on your rooftop, redirect it down a highly reflective shaft and then diffuse it throughout your interior space. The result is remarkable.

Kitchen: Your Kitchen is one place that needs maximum natural light. The kitchen is a gathering place for your family and friends to spend time together and retell the events of the day, as well as a center for activities such as cooking meals and entertaining. See for yourself in these Before and After picture illustrating the remarkable change with solatube.

Bathroom: Bringing Natural Light in a windowless Bathroom will reveal true colors, reduce eye strain and lower your energy bills

Before and After of a Bathroom with solatube.
Bedroom: You want to feel comfortable, safe and inspired in your bedroom; natural light helps convey that feeling.
Living Area: A pleasant environment with lots of natural light adds to the ambiance and makes your home feel comfortable and welcoming.
Hallways: Most homes have double-loaded corridors, with rooms on both sides resulting in dark, windowless hallways or staircases. Using natural light from the sun to illuminate a room lets us keep electric lights off during the day, saving energy and money.

Enjoy the Sunshine :)
