A Tube Skylight helps reflect natural light to the inside and provides a green alternative to electric lighting.
This concept dates back to Ancient Egyptian architecture and was first patented in London by Paul Emile Chappuis in the 1850s. Later in 1986, it was re-discovered in Australia and is now marketed for widespread residential and commercial applications worldwide.
▪ DOME ASSEMBLY - installed on roof, on top of flashing, allows natural light to enter the tube. Secondary dome improves light distribution by avoiding hot spots within the tube.
▪ FLASHING - sturdy, aluminum base, installed and sealed on top of roof.
▪ TUBE - aluminum, reflective tubes run from roof to ceiling. These help re-direct natural light into the desired dark area.
▪ CEILING ASSEMBLY - dual prismatic diffuser and white trim rings help keep the heat out while providing an elegant design.
