 How Does It Work? 

Solatube Daylighting Systems (also known as Sun Tunnels, Light Tubes, or Sun Pipes) gather natural light at roof level then transfer it via highly reflective tubing to a ceiling fitting which diffuses the beautiful, natural light into the room below. 
 
Solatube patented the first tubular daylighting system over twenty five years ago and is still leading the industry, with a worldwide reputation as the best quality system available. From roof domes to ceiling fitting, every component is manufactured to the highest quality and fully tested resulting in a superior system that is unrivalled in performance. All components are backed by a 10 year manufacturer’s warranty.

Quality, Compliance and Value for Money

Flexible Tubes 
= Poor Performance 

Avoid Disappointment 

Daylighting systems with flexible tubing are at the lower end in terms of quality and cost. Usually bought by tradespeople for convenience, tests show that just one Solatube rigid tube system will deliver more daylight than 10 (yes 10!) equivalent sized flexible duct systems.

Building Regulation Compliance

Daylighting Systems vs Skylights

Tubular vs Traditional Skylights 

While traditional flat skylights or roof windows have been used for many years to bring daylight into homes, they do have their disadvantages. Tubular daylighting systems offer significant innovations and benefits over these traditional methods, not least significantly more daylight at far lower cost.
