Take a look and see just how bright a Solatube really is. These short videos are of our own Solatube installations from across the country including Sussex, Dorset, Somerset, Devon, Wiltshire and Cornwall, and show how effectively they can transform a dark room in to a light, bright space.
Comparing sun tunnel systems
Comparing sun tunnel systems can be difficult, but when you are looking for the best sun tunnel you need to compare the relative light levels each one delivers.
Here is the perfect example showing how the brightest Solatube sun tunnel compares to a cheap, copycat system with a flat glass collector.
