COMPANY OVERVIEW
ALL PRODUCTS

SkyVault Series - Commercial  

The core of the SkyVault Series, our largest tubular daylighting devices, is the M74 DS with 29″ diameter tubes that can be extended up to 100′ long to fill the largest spaces with natural light.

The beauty of the SkyVault is that it's not just a one-size-fits-all solution. With varying combinations of domes and collectors to capture light, modular optical tubing to transfer it, and optional Diffuser and Amplifier components to deliver it into the building, the SkyVault Series is a flexible, high-output solution for any large-volume space.

It all starts with standard domes that are available in both single- and dual-glazed configurations with optional security guards. But then the light capture functionality gets really big with the addition of the innovative SkyVault Collector that significantly enhanced the products ability to capture and redirect low-angle light into the advanced optical tubing while filtering out the heat associated with infrared wavelengths.

The The M74 DS uses unique bottom assembly components to deliver maximum daylight in high-ceiling applications, from the prismatic diffuser to the optional Amplifier, which focuses daylight all the way down to the task area.

The SkyVault Collector makes it possible to capture significantly more daylight than traditional skylights without heating the building interior. Featuring proprietary Raybender HD, LightTracker and INFRAREDuction Technology, the vertical collector:

  • Maximizes daylight delivery by capturing and redirecting low-angle light downward into the system

  • Minimizes solar heat gain by preventing heat-carrying infrared rays from entering the system

The Solatube M74 DS Amplifier significantly improves the delivery of daylight in high bay and high ceiling applications. Featuring 36 highly reflective facets made of proprietary Spectralight® Infinity material, the cone-shaped amplifier:
  • Reorients daylight to the visual task plane in occupied areas
  • Converts daylight at inefficient angles into useable light for increased optical efficiency of diffuser technologies

Brighten Up Series - Commercial  

Smaller commercial spaces - corridors, restrooms, nooks, and others—often suffer from lack of natural light because light from windows can't reach them. Solatube's Brighten Up Series is the perfect solution for bringing daylight to unexpected, hard-to-reach areas.

The Brighten Up Series offers two different tubular daylighting devices (160 DS and 290 DS, 10"- and 14"-wide tubes, respectively, with lengths up to 30') to fit different applications and space sizes and fill them with natural light.

To match up with the Brighten Up Series' two device sizes, there are two different sized domes, each of which integrates technologies to maximize the capture of sunlight, even in lower light conditions and geographies.

The Brighten Up Series has leak-proof options to mount its domes on any roof type, from curb caps to flashings for both pitched and non-pitched roofs.

The Brighten Up Series offers the widest variety of diffusers, which can be used with hard, suspended or open ceilings. Attractive design options change commercial spaces from bland to beautiful.

Extension tubes can be added in increments of 24 in. (600 mm) to extend tube runs to the desired length without sacrificing performance. Our unique telescoping tubing system allows for easy adjustment in the field so tubing rarely has to be cut. Spectralight® Infinity Tubing has the highest reflectivity in the world making it possible to create extensive tube runs of up to 20 ft. (6 m) for the Solatube 160 DS and up to 30 ft. (9 m) for the Solatube 290 DS.
