If you need a way to bring more light into hard-to-reach places, suntubes are the answer. Suntubes work to bring natural light into small areas and awkward space by directing sunlight down through reflective tubing into the space below. Suntubes are perfect if you’re looking for ways to comply with various building regulations and are also available with passive ventilation options for use in spaces like bathrooms and kitchens.
Natural light has so many benefits. It can help to improve any space and make it look bigger, brighter and more inviting. It’s understandable that people want to bring as much natural daylight as possible into a property, which is why suntubes are so useful. UK tests have shown that they are incredibly effective – a 3m suntube on a 550mm diameter unit can be 14 times brighter than a 100 watt bulb. Once a suntube is installed, there is less need for artificial light, helping to save energy and reduce bills as well.
These are the standard specifications of our suntubes:
- Rigid tube system: available up to 1m (or 0.7m for flat roof kits)
- Flexible tube system: available up to 3m
Flexible extension tubing is also available in 625mm and 1250mm lengths. It can be used to extend rigid and flexible tube systems.
