Do you have a dark hallway or landing
If you have a dark hallway, or if you have a dark upstairs landing/hall then there is a way to get more day light in to dark rooms. Over the years I have frequently found that people are just not aware of tubular daylight systems, such as the Solatube sun pipe, and also how bright they are, yet a Solatube is often one of the best ways to light up windowless rooms.
So, how does a Solatube sun tunnel work?
Well, a Solatube is an incredibly simple, yet incredibly effective way of piping bright daylight inside.
- We install a clear dome on your roof which gathers ambient daylight from all around and directs it down a highly reflective tube.
- Inside your roof space, the tube is lined with the world’s most reflective material (99.7% reflective), which ensures that the maximum amount of light is reflected inside.
- This daylight emerges from the diffuser in the ceiling below, filling the room with bright daylight
- It’s simple, cost effective and incredibly bright
How many Sola tubes do you need to light up a hallway?
Usually fewer than most people think. A single standard size 35cm dia Solatube can comfortably light up a 6m / 20’ long hallway, or 2 smaller 25cm dia systems evenly spaced will also do a fantastic job. If the hall is small and only up to 2-3m / 6-10’ long a single 25cm dia system will be absolutely fine.
You can see from the pictures above just how bright a Solatube is and the difference they can make to a dark hallway or landing – filling them with bright daylight and transforming a dark area in to a light, bright space.
And whether your hallway is long and narrow, square or oblong, a Solatube can brighten any hall so that you don’t need to leave the doors open al the time in order to get some light in.
