Tubular Skylights

Tubular Skylights
by Universal Roofs

The idea of having skylights in the home was formerly limited and costly to think of. Not to talk of the technicalities of installing the traditional skylight. The mere thought of it made it seem impossible. In come tubular skylights with all their smartness, class and sophistication. Having skylights installed doesn’t seem like a chore any longer. Add our professionalism in the field of roofs and skylight installation, you have yourself a winner and a skylight that will last longer than expected.

You can have windows and doors installed to bring natural light into your home. The only clause is that the room is next to an exterior facing wall. We have used French windows and glass doors as a source of natural light for generations. But with rooms that are in the interior of the house, away from an external wall, the source of light becomes limited and skylights look like the obvious solution. 

Tubular skylights have been around since the 80s and have gained popularity for being a straightforward way of supplying light to any room of the house. At Universal roofs, our tubular skylights are not just compact but efficient in lighting up homes.

Tubular skylights are shaped like tubes, just as the name suggests, and captures sunlight via rooftop lens and tubes lined with reflective material. They capture sunlight and deliver it into a room whether the office or house. It has three key parts which are the dome, tube and diffuser. They are more compact in contrast to the normal rooftop skylights. They are thus more affordable and less difficult to install. We design them with rigid, adjustable and flexible features and can be customized for spaces that can’t accommodate conventional skylight.

What is the Working of a Tubular Skylight?

Tubular skylights work like the traditional or regular skylights that are more commonly seen. It is a natural lighting system again like the regular skylights. Except that it is a high performing natural light source that makes use of advanced optics to harvest sunlight in a method that is a great improvement to daylight control and usage.

These types of skylights capture sunlight from the roof and reflect it down through a tube into a fixture in the room below.

You can use them to provide natural light to living areas, kitchens, hallways, closets etc. this type of skylight can give off as much sunlight as a skylight more than twice its size. It also costs less than other natural light rendering options.
