In Britain, Sky tubes are still a hidden little treasure and I bet if people were shown the benefits and the whole idea of them they would be more wide spread .

In the building industry companies such as Westbridge Homes should make them available to buyers or make them standard spec and out line the savings and reduction in the owners carbon foot print.

I live in a house where the en-suite is in the centre of the house with no windows so it relies on electric lights. This room would be an ideal room to use sky tubes in as you have to still use an electric light during daylight hours when its bright sunshine outside.

Sky Tubes – tubular skylights that funnel daylight

Sky Tubes are tubular skylights which use silver reflective tubing to funnel daylight from the roof of a property, through the loft to the room below. A wide diameter around 240mm Silver Tube is used to maximise light flow. This fits nice and neat between the joists in the loft but still provides enough light to illuminate the entire room. The top of the tube fits into a Variable Pitch Adaptor (VPA) which means that the tube may also be turned to the South to make the most of the sun when its low in the sky in winter.

Adaptors that are Angled available for tight locations.

Also they saves your money from reduction in electric and gas.

But also reduce your carbon foot print as you don’t need internal lights on until it is very dark outside.

If used in a landing or long passage a SKYTUBE will light up approximately 3.6 meters of corridor (with a width of not more than 1.3 meters)
