Solatube Brighten Up Daylighting Systems


The Solatube 160 DS and 290 DS Daylighting Systems feature patented Raybender® 3000 and LightTrackerT Reflector technology. A patented dome lens captures daylight from all angles, including low-angle winter sunlight, and redirects it down the highly-reflective Spectralight® tube into interior rooms. It also rejects overpowering summer midday sunlight, providing consistent, full spectrum daylighting throughout the day. Highly effective and simple to install, the Brighten Up Series can transform dark interior rooms, and can illuminate more expansive spaces. Solatube daylights are great for bathrooms, hallways, corridors, utility rooms, dens, home offices, kitchens, dining rooms, and closets. Choose the 160 DS for areas of 150-200 square feet, and the 290 DS for areas of 250-300 square feet.

Traditional skylights can take days to install. Solatube Daylighting Systems take just a couple of hours, thanks to their patented fastening and tube telescoping system. Attic obstructions aren’t a problem either; angle adapters and extension tubing make it easy to skirt around rafters and joists for quick, easy installation. That’s why Solatube Daylighting Systems require no structural changes during installation. Rather than cutting into obstacles like rafters and joists, they are designed to go around them.
