Why do I need skylights?
Tubular skylights provide beautiful lighting that reduces your need for electric lighting. Tubular skylights use the sun for lighting interiors without the drawbacks associated with regular skylights and they resemble conventional lighting fixtures. Our tubular skylights have a roof-mounted light collector consisting of a high-impact acrylic lens set in a metal frame. They have a reflective sun scoop in the rooftop assembly that directs sunlight into a metal tube with a highly reflective interior coating. The reflective tube guides the sunlight to a diffuser lens mounted on the interior ceiling surface that spreads light evenly throughout the room. The shape of the scoop is parabolic to reflect sunlight into the home regardless of the sun’s angle in the sky. Do you need light at night? We also have a model that has integrated electrical lights so the fixture can provide light both day and night. This model works very well in bathroom applications where space is limited and multiple fixtures make the ceiling look too cluttered.

Why Tubular Skylights Instead of Traditional Skylights? Tubular Skylights emit more light per given area, because of the high reflectivity of the mirror-like light pipe. Tubular Skylights are far more energy efficient, the cylindrical design minimizes the area for direct light to enter and heat up the area, the thin light pipe radiates any collected heat into the attic area. Since the light pipe acts as a sealed shaft, very little heat escapes up the light pipe, whereas a tremendous amount of heat rises up the large shaft of traditional skylights. Tubular Skylights scatter 100% of the natural light spectrum through the use of a diffuser, thereby eliminating the spot light effect common with the traditional system. Tubular Skylights scatter 100% of the natural light spectrum through the use of a diffuser, thereby eliminating the spot light effect common with the traditional system. 99% of harmful UV rays are absorbed by the tubular skylights special dome, light pipe and diffuser material, thereby eliminating the bleaching effect on rugs and furniture. 99% of harmful UV rays are absorbed by the tubular skylights special dome, light pipe and diffuser material, thereby eliminating the bleaching effect on rugs and furniture.
