Solartube South Africa

Solar tubes are cylinders used to bring natural light into homes, to help replace or add to electric lights. They’re also known by several other names, including sun pipes, sun scopes, light tubes, and daylight pipes. They’re usually installed on roofs and come through to the ceiling below (like a skylight) and they look like small spotlights. Like skylights, solar tubes provide light coming directly from above, so you’ll get more sunshine. Solar tubes are better insulated than skylights or ordinary windows, though you won’t be able to see as much of the outside world. For interior rooms without outside walls, they can be a great source of natural light. Because of the way the technology works, they can actually provide much more light than a skylight that’s many times larger. For people with seasonal affective disorder who need more access to sunlight, they can help supplement existing windows. Solar tubes can also be useful in rooms that require high-security.
