Solatube Skylights

Source

The Solatube Daylighting System captures sunlight on the rooftop and redirects it down a reflective tube into interior spaces. The tubing will fit between rafters and will install easily with no structural modification. At the ceiling level, a diffuser spreads the light evenly throughout the room.

Solatubes can be installed in new or retrofit construction; they work by refracting, reflecting and concentrating solar light into a small tube using mirrors and lenses. ©2010 Solatube
