Installing products you’ll love in Ballarat and the surrounding suburbs
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.
Solatube Skylights 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, the Australian company that pioneered tubular daylighting technology, provides high-performance systems that use advanced optical technologies to significantly improve the way daylight is harnessed. Not only are commercial operators, government bodies and householders looking to offset artificial lighting costs, they’re also opting for natural light because of the myriad ‘human’ benefits – from helping with better sleep, boosting Vitamin D storage, enhancing productivity, to improving moods.
By effectively capturing and bringing daylight into the home from the early morning until late afternoon, Solatube’ s solutions can contribute to improving your health while reducing the need to rely on other traditional sources of lighting.
Extend daylight during winter months
With winter approaching, skylights can be a simple and highly effective way to draw natural daylight into your home, thus extending daylight and transforming dark rooms into natural-light filled spaces. Solatube’s tubular daylighting systems were developed to capture as much sunlight as possible, no matter where the sun is located throughout the day.”
Solatube Daylighting Systems are an economical solution for lighting hallways, ensuites, study nooks, walk-in wardrobes and pantries, storerooms or any room that has small-sized windows, windows shaded by buildings and trees, or a south-facing aspect. Not only will ample light hinder the growth of mould, you will no longer have to fumble in the dark for the light switch or remember to turn it off.
Solatube systems are easy to install and can be installed on just about any type of roof, regardless of the slope or orientation towards the sun.
