Daylight Specialists is an authorized distributor and installer of Solatubes®, new-tech skylights that use mirrors to capture and direct natural sunlight to interior spaces. Solatubes can be installed in brand new buildings, as well as during the redesign/retrofit of existing spaces.
Solatube® Commercial Daylighting Solutions
Solatubes first hit the market in the 1980s when an Australian inventor created a tubular daylighting device (TDD) as an alternative to the traditional skylight. This device was the first Solatube product brought to market and served as the catalyst for multiple new daylighting products and technologies.
Solatube products are uniquely different from skylights for several reasons. For professionals specializing in retrofits, most Solatube products do not require complex structural changes to a building to deliver abundant and brilliant light into dark interior spaces.
Solatubes use a rooftop lighting system that redirects sunlight through reflective cylinders on the outside of the building into a diffuser on an inside ceiling. Over the years of development and perfection, accessory features have been added to the Solatube line including integrated lighting as well as dimming and diffuser features, and extension tubes that can circumvent obstacles inside a building without sacrificing quality light.
Since the first patented TDD by Solatube in 1986, the company has become a market leader in daylighting technologies, continuing to innovate and create new products and models.
Features of modern Solatube products boast patented technology that prevents heat-carrying infrared rays from entering the lighting systems, innovative lenses and reflectors that increase light capture while minimizing glare or over lighting.
