Solatube Diffusers Traditional skylights are designed to let light in – and that’s where their functionality stops. They’re not designed to prevent glare or hot spots or to ensure the light they provide is pleasant and designed to enhance the spaces beneath them. As a result, the light you get is often harsh and inconsistent, providing significant variations throughout the days and across the seasons.

Solatube skylights are different. When Solatube’s unique daylighting system was designed, it was created to provide a different type of skylight experience aimed not just at bringing in daylight, but optimising it to ensure each light provides the clearest, purest light possible, even over 30-foot distances, and all without glare, harsh shadows or unpleasant hot spots.

Solatube achieves all these aims – and more – by implementing a unique design, from the roof all the way down to the opening in your ceiling.

In fact, it’s at the ceiling that many of Solatube’s unique design elements really shine – literally. Instead of just a clear opening that allows light to enter the space without regard for the end product, Solatube skylights use diffusers to prevent glare and ensure light is spread evenly across the interior space. And instead of just providing one style of diffuser, Solatube offers several styles to blend with any décor and to provide just the right amount and quality of light you want: Choose the Vision Diffuser™ for optimal diffusion and a fresh design crafted to blend seamlessly with the ceiling while providing soft, pure, natural light. Or if you want a truly unique look, you might prefer the OptiView® Diffuser and its series of high-tech radial lenses that offer a kaleidoscopic view of the sky, clouds, sun and moon. The radial lens design bends exiting light for optimal light dispersion that eliminates glare.

Beyond the diffusers themselves, you can also select lens effects to provide natural, warm, soft and warm/soft light for just the look you want. Plus, every diffuser uses a sleek, unobtrusive design and a bevelled edge that hugs the ceiling for a custom, built-in look sure to lend high-end appeal to any room.

In addition to the light and décor effects they provide, Solatube diffusers are simple to remove and clean too. Just a gentle counter clockwise twist is all it takes to remove the diffuser for easy cleansing with soap and water.

Why settle with the standard, harsh, sub-par light of a traditional skylight when you can enjoy pure sunlight gently diffused by Solatube’s one-of-a-kind diffuser systems and lenses?

  1. Please send me information on the price and availability of a solar light diffuser. My living room is small, but deeply shaded, and a roof solar diffuser would make a big difference.
    Thank you,

  2. We need a another dome diffuser – about our 3rd one – probably not installed properly. After some time – they have just dropped- with the usual results. Where can we purchase one near Penrith – both getting a bit old to get up to the ceiling again – but will give it another go. Please advise price and address. Thank You.

    1. Hi Beryl

      Solatube home can assist with sourcing replacement, they can be contacted on 9725 5433 – 4/5 Wenban Place, Wetherill Park

  3. I have just bought a new slimline diffuser for my 18 inch Solatube, but discovered that it doesn’t just fit in place of the older dome diffuser which was originally fitted. Can the base of the old one be changed to accept the new slimline diffuser?

    1. Hi Sid,

      The original Solatube diffusers had optional décor trims added to complement our dome shaped diffusers for a neat finish on the ceiling. If this décor trim is still attached, the more recent slimline diffusers will not fit. It is possible to remove the décor trims, however we recommend this is done by a trained Solatube installer as it may be necessary to also re-adjust the skylight tubing. Please contact your local Solatube dealership for further advice.

  4. I am looking for 3 x 400mm round diffusers with white plastic mounting frame to suit suspended ceiling panels (clip in). Needed asap.

  5. Need to replace diffusers in my solar tubes. Clips have snapped off.
    Live in Illawarra nsw. Can you advise where to purchase.

    1. Hi Kerry,

      There are tabs on one side, align the tabs on the diffuser to the ones on the ceiling ring and twist clockwise to secure.

  6. Which diffuser provides the delivers the most amount of light? Are there differences between optiview and other diffuser types?

    1. Hi Shayed

      It is more about the spread of light than any diffuser changing the volume. In most simple domestic applications, you are better off choosing the most appealing diffuser as the natural eye will not notice the difference.
