COMPANY OVERVIEW

Product Presentation
Easy to apply, predictable, and reliable daylighting! A Solatube® Daylighting System is a cost-effective, leak-proof, energy-efficient way to bring the benefits of natural light into any commercial or residential interior. Models are available to provide designers with the right amount of lighting for each particular application, and our Daylight Dimmer™ allows for dimming of daylight output. The SolaMaster® Series, Solatube 750 DS Daylighting System and Solatube 330 DS (21 in/530 mm), offers a unique daylighting option for all types of ceiling configurations in commercial buildings including suspended, hard, and open ceilings. The Brighten Up® Series consists of the Solatube 160 DS & 290 DS (10 in/250 mm & 14 in/350 mm.) Designed for superior performance from a compact design, this series is ideal for residential and smaller commercial spaces and offers the option of an electric light for nighttime lighting. The Solatube 160 DS also features an optional integrated ventilation fan.

As members of the U.S. Green Building Council, Solatube International has also been discovered by the sustainable design community as a simple and effective way to earn LEED™ certification credits. Solatube Daylighting Systems are specified in multiple LEED projects around the U.S., with growth expected to increase as more local, state and federal governmental agencies and departments adopt the rating system for their building projects.

Businesses and institutions aren’t the only ones turning to energy-efficient lighting options. More and more homeowners around the country are also demanding “green” design options for their homes.
