The roots of Solatube® International Inc, originator of the Tubular Daylighting Device, go back to the 1980s when Steve Sutton, Solatube's inventor, had a revolutionary idea: a compact, leak-proof and effective alternative to traditional skylights.
His concept incorporated a light-capturing system on the rooftop that redirected light down through a highly reflective cylinder to a light diffuser at ceiling level. In 1986, a patent was sought and in 1991 the first Solatube® was sold in Australia.
More than 20 years have passed since the first patent was sought, and Solatube® has demonstrated an unrivalled commitment to state-of-the-art technology and design. The future looks even brighter as Solatube continues to improve upon the oldest and finest light source of all – natural light!
