Sola’s flexible approach to daylight in buildings

High levels of natural daylight can be brought into dark areas in buildings using Sola Skylights’ Sky Tunnel. They are easily installed in pitched or flat roofs in just a couple of hours. A flexible connector with highly reflective inner surface simplifies installation. They are available in lengths of 3, 4, 5 and 6 m. Two sizes of Sky Tunnel fit between 14 and 16 in frame centres. They are best installed on a south-facing roof. Standard units can be configured to act as trickle ventilators. Other options include a system to cut off daylight transmission when required. An electric light can be installed within a unit to provide illumination at night.
