Overview: Product Presentation
Sun-Dome Tubular Skylights are a no non-sense, Dade County Hurricane Tested and approved energy effective tubular daylighting device with a solid .040 aluminum (rust proof) flashing in 4 slopes to match roof pitch for optimum capture of sun-light. Alanod aluminum tubes (98% reflectance) bring in natural light all day long, whether the sun is at high noon or at the horizon. Our polycarbonate domes are UV treated so no damaging heat rays are transferred and our tubing (warranted for 25 years) will not delaminate.
LEED credits are applicable with Sun-Dome Tubular Skylights.
Commercial: school, warehouse, office, park restroom, recreational facility, retail store, supermarket, industrial site, medical and manufacturing site.
Residential: all rooms in the home, assisted living facility, modular home, and apartment.
Flashings match 4 roof slopes (flat, low, medium, and high pitch) for optimum light capture.
Select diffusers for open and closed ceilings in prismatic or white translucent.
Eclypse light dimmer controls lighting.
Round to square troffers fit suspended ceilings.
*Color Rendering Index approaches to 100%.
*No structural modifications necessary for most applications.
Sun-Domes can usually be installed in 2 hours or less.
The 10“ diameter unit lights about 100 square feet.
The 13” diameter unit lights about 250 square feet.
The 21” diameter unit (mainly used in commercial applications) lights 400 to 600 square feet depending on the height of the ceiling and quantity of light required.
Eclypse dimmer controls the natural lighting.
Round to square troffer system offers transition into acoustical ceiling tiles.
Sun-Dome Tubular Skylights brighten interiors with free, renewable energy from natural sunlight without the heat gain of ordinary skylights. They cut power consumption and reduce A/C heat load and run time by several hundred kilowatts per month!
Sun-Dome Tubular Skylights are a energy efficient choice for commercial and residential lighting. Help save our natural resources by reducing energy consumption.

Proven energy savings with minimal heat gain or loss.
Natural light helps plants flourish
Cost? Just a fraction of ordinary skylights with more light, no heat, and without the problems!
Reduce A/C heat load and run time to reduce wear on A/C
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS
A clear, unbreakable polycarbonate dome mounted on a storm-tested, aluminum flashing on the roof collects and directs sunlight down into the area below through a high-performance reflective transfer tube. This tube connects to a domed translucent or prismatic diffuser that distributes natural light evenly throughout the area without heat gain or loss.
Include energy-saving Tubular skylights in structures and
become a solar energy leader in GREEN BUILDING NOW!
Save 75-90% with SUN-DOME Tubular Skylights
(Commercial applications will use more than one skylight.)
LIGHT ANY BUILDING WITH 0 WATTS PER LUMEN ALL DAY
Sun-Dome Tubular Skylights can drastically reduce overhead costs in almost any type business and reduce A/C heat load and run time. “Daylight Harvesting” should be considered in all new building designs as well as renovations and up-grades to existing buildings. Solar lighting is no longer just an option but a reality for the future.
SUN-DOMES WILL EASILY MOUNT TO ALMOST ANY TYPE ROOF SYSTEM. WE CAN ALSO SUPPLY CUSTOM ROOF FLASHINGS TO FIT MOST METAL ROOF PROFILES THAT LOOK GREAT AND WILL NEVER CAUSE LEAK PROBLEMS.
Sun-Dome Tubular skylights are a true energy savings product. Highlight the beauty of your home and conserve energy too. Improve your quality of life and lower power bills. Natural, healthy and free sunlight all day. Sun-Dome is the light source of the future NOW! Tubular skylights conform to the definition of "Solar Energy System" by the Florida Energy Research Foundation.
Impact Resistant Polycarbonate Lexan® Domes
Flashings are made of .040 aluminum. Won't warp during extreme
temperature changes. Custom flashings available on request. Since 1996, Sun-
Dome Tubular Skylights have been used in all climate extremes, from Canada to
the South Pacific.
Four standard flashing slopes.
Elbows standard on 10"; and 13" units. Elbows optional on 21" units.
This device is designed for easy installation in commercial applications into open areas. As the unit may now be lowered directly into the flashing barrel from the roof there is no longer a need to access the inside of the building to attach the diffuser as it is now fastened at the bottom tube with (6) sheet metal screws through the collar into the pipe.
This new design is less labor intensive as well as cost-effective for an installer. It takes less time to install, saves on equipment expense (ie. tall ladders, platform scaffolds) and reduces liability exposures.
