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.

  1. We install a clear dome on your roof which gathers ambient daylight from all around and directs it down a highly reflective tube.
  1. 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.
  1. This daylight emerges from the diffuser in the ceiling below, filling the room with bright daylight
  1. 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.

I hope all the above helps and If you are interested in bringing natural light into your home, why not contact us at info@solatubescotland.co.uk; 07778 283 427 to find out whether a Solatube sun pipe can help you.
