Installation Instructions

The Solatube® Brighten Up® Series is a quality system that has been engineered to make installation as easy as possible; small components are pre-assembled and features such as ‘easy snap’ dome, pre-installed dome spacers, twist-fit ceiling ring and push on/off ceiling diffuser make installation quick and simple.

We suggest you read these instructions and our skylight Installation tips as it may help you decide whether to go ahead with a DIY installation or opt for our Solatube Certified Installation service. If you choose to fit your Solatube® Daylighting System yourself, you should allow at least 4 hours, particularly if it is your first installation. You will need to carry out some work on your roof, so you should only undertake this part of the installation if you are confident you can do so safely and competently.

With so many options available to you, it’s easy for you to choose the right skylight installation option to suit your current situation, home or project.

If you are in any doubts about carrying out the installation yourself and you are purchasing this product as an independent project (Not as part of a renovation or full build) then we would recommend opting for a Certified Installation by a member of our team.
