Daylighting vs Skylights

Solatube Daylighting Systems vs Skylights

A Better Alternative to Traditional Skylights

Solatube® Daylighting Systems offer a simple, smart alternative to traditional skylights. Only Solatube Daylighting Systems use innovative breakthrough technology to bring natural light into virtually any room in only two hours.

Why choose Solatube?

It is important to understand that not all "tubular skylights," or daylighting systems, are created the same. Most cheaper daylighting systems will deliver only a small fraction of the light that a Solatube Daylighting System delivers.

While "flexible" systems may be cheaper to buy, you could find out too late that the poor results of that cheaper tubular daylighting system (in areas such as light output and light quality) significantly outweigh the small money savings.
