Like much of Australia, Ballarat has between six and 14 hours of daylight, depending on the time of year. Unlike areas further north and inland, however, Ballarat has a cooler climate, one of the reasons for its famed wine production.
Solatubes in Ballarat
This tendency toward cloudy conditions and cooler weather can mean that traditional windows allow a great deal of heat to escape. Even the biggest and best double and triple-glazed windows fail to make the most of the available light. It fades into interior gloom, and windows’ insulating properties are always poor when compared to solid walls. On sunny days, solar gain can be a problem, with rooms overheating thanks to unfiltered UV light.
This is where Solatube Skylights can be the solution. A skylight can provide bright natural light where windows are unable to reach, and they cause neither significant heat loss nor solar gain. Solatube’s unique technology captures more than 99% of the available light and reflects it along a tube into almost any room. In fact, thanks to Spectra Light Infinity technology, it is possible to extend the reach of daylight from a roof light as far as 10 metres into the building.
Solatube Plus LEDs
On even the darkest days, Solatube’s Smart LED Lighting System maximises the use of daylight and seamlessly transfers to energy-efficient LED lights when the daylight fades away. Customers in Ballarat can also choose to add optional motion sensors to this lighting system so that the LED light is never on unnecessarily.
