The Solatube® Daylighting System, a Tubular Daylighting Device (TDD) was invented over twenty years ago in Australia, as an easier and more cost effective way to daylight any dark area in your home. Optical technology included throughout the system allowed Solatube® to be the first Tubular Daylighting Device in the world to daylight a room consistently with no heat gain or loss. Our original designs were revolutionary and earned the praise of the media and the loyalty of Solatube® product owners all over the world. Solatube® Daylighting Systems have challenged conventional thinking and changed the way people use daylight.
Over the years, we have continued to innovate, adding both optical technology throughout the system as well as offer an array of sizes and design choices. Do not confuse Solatube® with a skylight. We are a high-performance daylighting system that is able to capture, transfer and effectively diffuse daylight through many of our patented technologies, giving homeowners, architects and designers a way to solve many of their daylighting challenges.
