Thousands of Kiwis have installed Solatube skylights in their home. Here's why

The Solatube system is one of the world's most popular ways to get more light into your home. Whether you have small rooms that are in desperate need of natural light, or you want to brighten up large open plan living areas, there is a Solatube for you. Read on to find out more about the tech behind a Solatube skylight!

Dome day

Raybender 3000 Technology

Only accepts the right type of sunlight

The dome on top of the Solatube is not just for show. The bands running around the outside of the Solatube dome are actually small prisms that have been designed to capture and direct more sunlight into your home, and also reject harsher midday sun. This is how the Solatube consistently delivers natural light.

Rays

INFRAREDuction Technology

The coolest technology

Solatube's industry-leading daylighting technology delivers an unparalleled transfer of natural light, with minimum heat gain. It does this by removing infrared wavelengths before they can be transferred through the tube, getting rid of heat before it ever enters your home. So it's perfect for hot climates and warmer months, where it reduces the cooling load on heating and cooling systems.
