The Solatube Tubular Skylight That Shines Even at Night

Over time, homeowners have craved naturally lit spaces, even before studies proved the health benefits of daylight on us. Due to historical issues in performance, many homeowners have steered clear of conventional skylights. Fortunately, recent advancements in daylighting technology have unveiled an array of possibilities for the future of indoor daylighting.

There’s a reason Solatube is one of the world’s leading daylighting innovators.


Brilliant Technology

Were you aware that a Solatube tubular skylight can deliver natural light to virtually any room, even those on the ground floor of a multi-story home?

We rely on a few key elements.  

At Solatube, we strive to make our skylights not only cost-effective and compact, but with the addition of a few accessories, they can be used in a multitude of ways.

Day and Night

A simple solution for any spot in your home is the Solatube Skylight – featuring an integrated solar-electric nightlight. This self-contained photovoltaic (PV) system is positioned within our reflective tubing, where it captures and stores solar energy and then converts it into electricity to power the soft, low-wattage nightlight. This capability lets you bring the beauty of natural light into your home during the day while providing safe and easy-to-navigate hallways, kitchens, bathrooms, and stairwells at night. As the daylighting system with a built-in nightlight harnesses the power of the sun, they require no electricity and have no cost to operate.

Additionally, your Solatube skylight can also be enhanced with a universal light add-on kit. This ideal accessory eliminates unnecessary clutter by easily affixing to the interior of the system’s tubing to deliver LED lighting for nighttime use.


Daylight Dimmer

Uncertain about having daylight stream into your living space throughout the entire day? Seeking the flexibility to indulge in a nap or enjoy a movie within a dimmed setting? We understand you may love the natural light of our tubular skylights but may also need the ability to adjust the brightness. This prompted the introduction of our Solar-Powered Daylight Dimmer, which includes a remote-controlled, solar-powered baffle that opens and closes at the touch of a button.  Adjusting the natural light in your space has never been easier!



As you’re aware, our daylighting systems have the capability to effortlessly transform a dimly lit interior bathroom or laundry into a bright and beautiful space. However, what about the challenge of trapped humidity caused by steamy hot showers or the operation of a washing machine and clothes dryer? Solatube tubular skylights can handle that too. Our Ventilation Add-On Kit merges daylighting and ventilation into one attractive fixture, leaving your rooms humidity-free and preserving the appearance of your ceiling. Our daylighting systems, combined with our Ventilation Add-On Kit, can make any room feel as beautiful as it looks.

Sweet Efficiency

While insulated skylights have become commonplace, not all skylights are the same. Inferior skylights may experience greater heat loss in winter or contribute to excessive heat gain during the summer months.

Therefore, it pays to insist on a product with an ENERGY STAR certification.

Our Solatube tubular skylights and accessories boast the coveted ENERGY STAR rating for their ability to exceed the defined energy performance requirement for climates around the country and for their ability to ensure minimal heat exchange.

Quick and Easy Installation

Gone are the days of extensive renovations to accommodate a skylight. With Solatube, the installation of a tubular skylight can be accomplished within a few hours, requiring no structural alterations. Thanks to our product’s convenient design, the components fit between and around rafters and joists, making for a fast and easy project.

Homeowners have always loved skylights for the way they transform dark, dreary interiors into bright, airy spaces. Leveraging its unique design and accessories, our Solatube tubular skylights go where others cannot, introducing sunlight to virtually any room in the home and offering customisation for any home or space.
