Skylights, Sky Lites, Solar Rooftop Windows, Light Tubes

Posted on 19. Nov, 2008 by .


Sky Tubes can make a huge difference in the world of living, turning
a small stuffy dim room and instantly bringing in the natural light
from outside and then letting you feel the space and freedom you never

They save you money by keeping off the lights normally used and in affect turn on the sun.

light lifts peoples spirits, makes small spaces appear larger, and just
shows our home  in its true colour. Beyond It also reduces eyestrain,
increases our productivity, reduces electrical demand and cost.

Unfortunately, today’s buildings rarely have enough natural light.

very good alternative to standard skylights and not as expensive are
tubular sky tubes. Sky tubes can provide enough daylight for a whole
room and are ideal for en-suites. Amazingly on a clear night with a
bright moon, the moonlight can help lighten a room, garage or workshop.

Many tubular skylights are very similar in design. Usually a small
tube between 8” and 22” in diameter runs from a replaced tile  in the
roof down to the rooms ceiling below. The interior surface of the tube
is very shiny and reflective.

It really doesn’t lose much
light from length of the tube as the light bounces around in the tube
while travelling from roof to room diffuser. The dome on the roof is
usually a plastic self cleaning fitting.

The ceiling part of the tube is covered by usually a frosted looking diffuser, so it really looks like a normal ceiling light.

Sky tunnels/tubes can help with SAD (seasonal disorders)

Posted on 31. Jan, 2008 by .


Though the dangers of sun exposure–like skin cancer and blindness–should still be taken into consideration, sunlight is still a part of a healthy lifestyle and to have natural light in your home is a good thing.

Natural sunlight can reduce the effects of SAD, or seasonal affective disorder—( seasonal depression). Doctors have suggested taking walks daily for people who suffer from this disorder, even when the sky is overcast. This has shown to help improve seasonal depression even more than the use of sunlamps. So having sky tubes installed must only be a huge benefit.
