How Solatube Works – See how we can brighten any room in your home.

Solatube Daylighting Systems combine breakthrough optical technology with advanced designs and the highest quality materials to fill your living spaces with an abundance of pure, clear natural light.

From sunup to sundown, daylight is harvested by a specially designed rooftop dome that uses our proprietary Raybender® 3000 Technology. The dome collects sunlight from any angle, selectively harnessing only the wavelengths we need to see, and filtering out those we don’t. It then redirects the sunlight through our highly reflective Spectralight Infinity Tubing, and delivers it to you in spaces never thought possible—like the
bathroom, laundry room and kitchen. Solatube Daylighting Systems make these spaces brighter to give you the light you need to see better, accomplish more, and live better. Solatube…the brightest idea since the creation of the sun.

1. Capture

The story all begins with capturing sunlight. We challenged our engineers to develop a dome that automatically adjusts daylight harvesting throughout the day while achieving demanding thermal performance requirements. The solution? The most advanced dome technology with the ability to virtually bend daylight.

LightTraker Reflector
An innovative in-dome reflector that:

  • Redirects low-angle winter sunlight for maximum light capture
  • Increases light input for greater light output
  • Delivers unsurpassed year-round performance

Raybender 3000 Technology

A patented daylight-capturingdome lens that:

  • Redirects low-angle sunlight for maximum light capture
  • Rejects overpowering summer midday sunlight
  • Provides consistent daylighting throughout the day

How much does a bounce matter? You’d be surprised. Every time a ray of light is reflected, a small amount of that light is lost. And even a few percentage points in reflectivity make a huge difference in overall performance. It’s that attention to detail that led us to develop the highest performing tubing available.

What Are A Few Percentage Points? A small difference in reflectivity value can make an exponential difference in overall light delivery of a tubular daylighting device.

3. Deliver

What makes Solatube Daylighting Systems unique? The ability to offer amazing control over daylighting a space. From light control to diffusion, we’ve thought of virtually everything you need to bathe a space in pure, natural light.

Stylish Daylight Delivery

Form and function combine for optimal daylight diffusion with:

  • New Glass Distractions Decorative Fixtures
  • Warming or softening Effect Lenses
  • Ventilation, dimmer or nighttime lighting options

Superior Color Rendition

The unique spectral reflectance characteristics of Spectralight ® Infinity Tubing reflect the visible spectrum without color shift to deliver the purest color rendition possible. It’s performance like this that ensures that the color you use in a space will be vivid and accurate.
