Simply the best
The Solatube® Daylighting System will provide more daylight all day long, all year long than any other tubular daylighting device – guaranteed!
Not only is this backed up by independent tests carried out by the Building Research Establishment, but a simple mathematical calculation demonstrated below shows how the tube material plays a huge part in providing the best light transfer.
Solatube® Daylighting Systems offer unrivalled performance. The combined technologies incorporated in the Solatube® roof dome can more than double the amount of light entering the tube. Even low level winter light is captured by the Solatube® dome technologies
It is the tube material that determines how much of the light entering via the dome is then transferred to the room below – so always check the reflective value of the tube material; the higher, the better!
Reflect on this ...
A Solatube® Daylighting System – indeed any tubular daylighting device – works in a similar manner to a window; the brighter the day outside, the more light you receive inside, the key is to choose the system that makes the most of the available daylight.
At 99.7% reflective, the tube material used in Solatube® Daylighting Systems is the most reflective material available in any tubular daylighting device
You can probably appreciate, flexible tube by its very nature is not a reliable means of transferring light; light entering a flexible tube will not necessarily continue to bounce on a downward path, but will scatter randomly in all directions (including upwards) as it bounces off the concertinaed surface of the tube.
A rigid tube will allow light to continue on its path with each bounce – rather like a mirror. A flexible, concertinaed tube has an inner surface rather like a piece of crumpled foil and will therefore scatter light randomly in all directions, some of it back up out of the tube, which will significantly reduce the amount of light delivered.
Independent tests have been carried out between Solatube® Daylighting Systems, which use only rigid tube material, and two widely-available flexible tube systems and the results show a dramatic difference in the amount of light delivered.
The ceiling diffusers that complement the Solatube range effectively and evenly distribute the incoming daylight around the interior space. They are double glazed and UV shielded to help prevent fading of furnishings and carpets.
Generally, no planning permission is required but do check if you are in a listed or conservation-grade building. There are systems that allow for Solatubes to be installed with conservation grade roof windows for these applications.

We do provide low-call 0845 numbers, which cost less than national rate, for those who prefer not to call us on our standard land lines, which are detailed above.
The very best delivery times
We don't want our customers waiting for interminable delivery times. We don't make vague delivery date promises, we strive to deliver next working day if ordered over the Internet before 12noon.

The very best service
While we are sufficiently large to be able to offer excellent value, but we are not so large that we cannot empathise with the needs of our customers and provide a helpful, friendly service. We have set up a web site that is as informative and user friendly as possible, but when you need to telephone us for advice, we won't treat you like some novice at a trade-counter; you will speak to a real person ... not some telephone answering bureau; and, unlike some, we won't charge for such advice.
