What is a Light Tunnel? 
A light tunnel or Sola Tube is a device that captures natural sunlight and channels it through a highly reflective tube, bringing natural light indoors to spaces that lack windows or have limited access to daylight. 
How does a Sola Tube work? 
A Sola Tube consists of 3 main components. A roof top dome, a tube with a highly reflective inner surface and a diffuser installed onto the ceiling indoors. The roof top dome captures the suns light and directs it into the reflective tube which optimises and transports the natural light to the ceiling diffuser which spreads the light evenly throughout the room. 
Can a Sola Tube system be installed in any building? 
Sola Tube systems can be installed in virtually any room or space that could benefit from increased natural light. They are commonly used in hallways, stair wells, kitchens, bathrooms and any other areas where access to natural light is limited. 
How much light do Sola Tubes provide? 
The amount of light provided depends on factors such as the size and design of the Sola Tube system specifically the diameter and length of the reflective tube and intensity of the sunlight. Sola Tubes can provide a signiƒicant amount of natural light, often equivalent to several light bulbs but the exact illumination will vary based on these factors. 
Do Sola Tube systems require maintenance? 
Sola Tube systems typically require minimal maintenance. The dome may need occasional cleaning to remove director debris that could obstruct the natural light. The ceiling diffuser may also need to be cleaned to maintain optimal light distribution. 
Can Sola Tubes be installed in existing buildings? 
Yes, Sola Tubes can be installed in existing buildings. They are designed to be adaptable over a range of roof structures and can be easily installed into spaces without major modifications to the roof and loft area. In this regard it is important to discuss this with one of our specialists in order to determine the feasibility and installation method for your specific application.
