Natural lighting

SolApipe Tubular Rooflight Systems

Demand for natural lighting is on the increase, as it is an ideal solution for offices, shops, schools and public buildings to bring natural daylight into internal spaces.

As an alternative to reliance on artificial lighting, natural lighting offers a range of economic, social, health and wellbeing benefits. At one end of the scale, an organisation can reduce carbon emissions and save money due to lower energy bills.

At the other end of the spectrum, natural lighting can lead to increased productivity through the improved wellbeing of people in buildings with natural lighting in combating depression, SAD and vitamin D deficiency.


Sunpipes offer a brilliant way to pipe natural daylight to brighten areas where daylight from windows cannot reach.

They collect daylight using a patented Diamond Dome, pass it through a MICRO-SILVER® mirror-finished aluminium tube and finally distribute it evenly through the use of a ceiling diffuser.

Sunpipes are suitable for homes, schools, offices and retail stores because diamond-shaped facets on the surface of the dome concentrate the projection of any daylight through a series of flat prisms.

LED sunpipes

Did you know that LED hybrid lighting systems can complement sunpipe natural daylight systems? LED is an ultra-low-energy lighting system and is suitable for any location, with guaranteed lighting performance.
