Perfecting sunlight through invention

We didn’t invent the sun. We just improved it. Solatube Daylighting Systems are engineered to efficiently capture the sun’s rays and pipe them into your home. The result is brighter, more colorful rooms that cost nothing to light. And because installation can usually be done in about two hours with no structural changes, it's the fastest and simplest solution to a more beautiful home.

More natural light

Sunlight in your home can transform a dark room into one that is bright and full of natural light. It can also highlight textures, and bring out the vibrant colors of your furniture. And that’s a beautiful thing.

Leakproof design

Solatube flashings are ingenious little devils. Engineered to work with all roof types—including shingle, slate, tile and metal—their seamless, one-piece steel construction eliminates the possibility of leaks. Plus, their circular design allows rain and debris to bypass the rooftop dome, making them virtually maintenance-free.

Quick, easy installation

Traditional skylights can take days to install. Solatube Daylighting Systems take just a couple of hours, thanks to our patented fastening and tube telescoping system. Attic obstructions aren’t a problem either. Our angle adapters and extension tubing make it easy to skirt around rafters and joists for quick, easy installation.

Reduced energy use

We all love free stuff. With an energy-efficient Solatube Daylighting System, you can light your home for free during the day using no-cost sunlight. That means you can spend less on electricity and more on you.

No structural changes

We like to keep things simple. That’s why our Solatube Daylighting Systems require no structural changes during installation. Rather than cutting into obstacles like rafters and joists, our products are designed to go around them.
