What is a sun tunnel?

Sun Tunnel skylights are generally known as tubular skylights and solar tubes. They consist of a long tube from the roof (or other available natural light source) to the ceiling of the room or closet where you want more light.

 

A tubular skylight is a popular choice for narrow hallways, bathrooms and closets. These skylights tend to resemble conventional light fixtures because of their size and concentrated intensity. A tubular skylight captures sunlight in a tube protruding from the roof. The inside of this tube is covered in a highly reflective metal coating, which sends the light bouncing off the metal and into the small room or hallway that is at the other end of the tube.  The sunlight is diffused, which prevents carpeting and furniture from experiencing the sun damage that other skylights can cause.

 

A sun tunnel  efficiently provides pure natural light while effectively minimizing heat gain and heat loss since it is a sealed system.
