Ciralight SunTrackers are better for the Environment, Better for Business, and Better for People.

Now with the worldwide movement toward energy efficiency and a greener planet, Ciralight Global, Inc. is making Ciralight SunTrackers an international commercial industry lighting solution that will allow millions of people enjoy natural, healthier, clean energy efficient lighting.
Ciralight's Solar Powered GPS Controller is the brain behind the SunTracker. Utilizing a small photovoltaic panel for energy, the GPS Controller establishes the unit's location on Earth and rotates the SunTracker'sô Mirror Array towards the sun to direct it's light indoors throughout the day. The GPS Controller's capabilities make this skylight the pinnacle of daylighting devices.
The SunTracker Dome is specifically shaped for active daylighting and strength. Available in either Acrylic or Polycarbonate, the Dome has been tested to withstand over 800 lbs dropped on it while also allowing full spectrum sunlight to pass through and into the building below. Capable of withstanding any climate, the SunTracker Dome is the skin that keeps the whole system protected within.
The SunTracker Dome Assembly Frame is the intermediary between the roof curb and the dome. Sitting flush atop the curb, the Assembly Frame holds the Dome firmly in place while keeping the GPS Controller and Mirrors protected from all external elements outside. The dual rain run-off levees built along the edge of the Dome Assembly Frame assure the SunTracker will not leak, while the Top Diffuser Lens sealed inside the Dome Assembly Frame works, in part, to minimize temperature transfer.
Rotating within the Dome throughout the day is the SunTracker Mirror Array. Reflecting direct sunlight through the Top and Bottom Diffuser Lenses, the highly-reflective aluminum Mirrors make the SunTrackerô the most effective skylight on the market. Pictured at left is the Triple Mirror Array; Single Mirror Array to the right. The SunTracker's Mirrors allow for consistent natural lighting from just after sunrise to just before sunset.
The SunTracker Lightwell transfers sunlight reflected off the Mirror Array into a building's interior. Sunlight passes through it's highly-reflective shaft to transmit abundant illumination indoors through a Lower Diffuser Lens at the bottom of the Lightwell throughout the daytime. SunTracker Lightwells are available in a variety of lengths and can be adjusted to meet any design and construction need.
Ciralight's SunTracker Flat Lower Diffuser Lens allows for a clean, flush finish to any ceiling while also dispersing stunning daylight all throughout any space utilizing SunTracker Skylights. Available in Acrylic and Polycarbonate, the Flat Lower Diffuser Lens is a great compliment to any SunTracker unit.
The SunTracker's Pyramid Lower Diffuser Lens gives a building interior a beautiful, evenly lit room at every angle. The shape of the Pyramid Lower Diffuser Lens allows for further dispersal of daylight to maximize indoor illumination levels. Available in Acrylic and Polycarbonate, the Pyramid Lower Lens is an aesthetic and effective answer for any room's daylighting needs.
The Low Ceiling Diffuser Lens is the suitable choice for ceiling heights of 12 feet (4 meters) or less. The SunTracker's Low Ceiling Diffuser Lens diffuses more light than our Pyramid and Flat Lower Diffuser Lenses, which may be too bright for smaller applications like classrooms and offices. Also, the Low Ceiling Diffuser Lens' design allows for daylight to reach further into the corners and edges of an interior space with low ceilings. Available in only Acrylic.
SunTracker's steel Security Bars ensure your building remains safe while having SunTrackers securely fastened on your roof. Protect your building interior from intruders while still allowing abundant sunlight through with the inclusion of Security Bars to your SunTracker systems.
The SunTracker Roller Shade System is a great compliment to any space that needs to control indoor light levels during the day. Go from full light, to half light, to pitch black in seconds with the Roller Shade System. Installed into the Lightwell away from view, the SunTracker Roller Shade System is available in solar powered, electric powered, or manual crank.
There are two ways to incorporate Ciralight Globalís high-performance daylighting into your building: Retrofitting units into an existing roof, or including them in a new construction project. Let our experience help you out.
At the A-1 Cold Storage warehouse near Los Angeles International Airport, Ciralightís SunTracker units pour in so much daylight that their electric lighting, standard four-foot long fluorescent lamps, can be turned off completely. The skylights are so effective that A-1 turns off every row of the office's lights at 9 a.m. and switches them back on at 5 p.m. In the winter, when the sun sets earlier, they're turned back on between 3-4 p.m. Their warehouse in back also follows a similar daylighting schedule.
Itís been proven that outdoor views and daylighing can greatly increase patient well being by ďreducing stress and anxiety, lowering blood pressure, improving recovery, lessening the need for pain medication, and bringing about shorter hospital stays
Retail stores who embrace daylighting often find they have a measurable advantage over their competition in several ways. An increase in consumer activity in daylit stores can be attributed to a combination of better visibility; more attractive displays; greater color differentiation; calm, relaxed atmosphere; stronger loyalty and increased frequency amongst customers; and finally, improved employee morale.
