Solatube Daylighting Systems also known as Sun Tunnels, Light Tubes, or Sun Pipes gather natural light at roof level then transfer it via highly reflective tubing to a ceiling fitting which diffuses the beautiful, natural light into the room below.

The newest innovation, the Solatube ISn Daylighting System, harnesses the sun’s energy during the day to power a soft-glow, solar-electric nightlight.

In the Solatube ISn Systems, patented Solatube technologies direct sunlight to an in-tube solar-electric system that collects energy by day to power a soft nightlight after dark. It emits just enough light to avoid nighttime tripping hazards such as sleeping dogs and stray toys. It also qualifies for a 30% federal tax credit.
