Solatube® Daylighting Systems
Solatube® Daylighting Systems, the world's leading Tubular Daylighting devices, deliver the benefits of brilliant, natural light to both new and existing buildings, allowing you to switch off artificial lighting during daylight hours and thus significantly reduce your energy costs and consumption. The most advanced technologies are used to capture daylight from the rooftop, transfer it through 99.7% reflective tubing and deliver it to the rooms below.
Daylight – a sustainable natural resource for healthier environments
Independent studies have long shown, that living or working in a well-lit environment, makes the occupants happier, healthier and more productive. And most people prefer to work under natural light; it makes spaces appear larger and more cheerful, and lessens demands on electricity, an important factor in today’s energy-conscious world.
Βuildings are responsible for almost 50% of the energy consumption and carbon emissions. Electric lighting is a major source of energy consumption – and not only by the provision of artificial light but also in the demand it in turn creates for cooling. Daylight, therefore, has become a very important design element for homes and places of work.
In the workplace, the effective use of Solatube® Daylighting Systems can reduce lighting bills by up to 80% by allowing electric lights to be switched off during daylight hours and eliminating the associated heat gain.

Whether you are looking to enhance your working environment by bringing additional daylight into your building or proactively seeking to reduce your energy costs and/or carbon footprint, Solatube® Daylighting Systems offer a well-proven, cost-effective and easily-implemented solution to achieve your goal.
Few would want to work in a dark, badly lit environment, but attempts to improve a work space simply by adding more artificial light, atriums, roof lights or traditional windows can be disappointing and costly; as well as bringing more light, these traditional methods can also bring associated negative consequences such as glare, solar heat gain, heat loss, major disruption to working patterns and high implementation and running costs.
Solatube® Daylighting Systems suffer none of these negative consequences and the only natural resource they run on is daylight – and that is free and abundant.
Supply and installation can be arranged into all types of buildings – please contact us to discuss your specific application.
Solatube® Daylighting Systems can transfer daylight into areas that traditional methods could not achieve; relatively small roof penetrations into almost all roof types are possible, including standing seam, composite roof panel, green roof, as well as the more conventional tiled roof styles.
Solatube® Daylighting Systems are completely maintenance-free and incorporate patented and proven technologies to give unrivaled performance and peace of mind. Supply and installation can be arranged into all types of buildings – please contact us to discuss your specific application.
