Tamworth, the ‘First City of Lights’, was the first Australian city to use electric street lights, but the next big thing is energy efficient indoor solar lighting. Come meet Shane and Katie Hannaford, our professional Solatube team at Skylight World in Tamworth. A family business specialising in skylights, ventilation and daylighting systems in the Tamworth area for over 23 years. Our showroom and office have every model we sell installed and functioning just as it would in your space, maximising natural light from sun up to sun down. We are a premier Solatube retailer with a variety of systems available.
As the name suggests, Skylight World’s range of products ensures we have a solution for every dark problem. We will recommend the best product for every home, workplace, shed, or anywhere that is need of natural light and/or ventilation. We are also highly experienced in the commercial area, lighting up several hospitals, aged care facilities, schools, TAFEs, airports, car showrooms and many other industrial buildings.
Our Daylighting Products
Skylight World specialises primarily in daylighting and ventilation products. Solatube is the original and industry leader in daylighting systems. It leads the market with a light tube that has astounding 99.7% reflectivity, making it so much more than an ordinary skylight, more pure, natural indoor light at Skylight World.
How do I spruce up my home?
If you can provide adequate natural light through products such as windows, skylights or tubular daylighting systems you are able to have the best of both worlds as natural light from the sun is the best source that transitions from warm (sunrise) to daylight to warm (sunset) to ensure you feel great every day. This allows you to use warm light in every room to create a relaxing living space while still utilising the best colour light during the day.
Another issue that many do not realise about sacrificing natural light to LED is the importance of colour rendition. It’s surprising how often colour rendition effects your day-to-day lives. The average 80% colour rendition of LED in comparison to natural lights 100% is the difference between knowing if that suit is navy or black in the walk-in robe. It’s the difference between picking the wrong shade of makeup in your bathroom, natural light is the choice for turning that old tired looking home into something that makes colours pop and feel vibrant.
So, what should you choose when it comes to natural light? It depends on what you want to achieve. Windows will allow you to see the Sky and create a feature, but if you’re looking to spread beautiful natural light evenly across the entire space the best way to do this it’s through a tubular daylighting device or tubular skylight. At a fraction of the cost of traditional large windows…
