Solatube Diffusers for Beautiful Daylight Delivery

Solatube sun tunnel Diffusers for Beautiful Daylight Delivery

Your sun tunnel ceiling fitting is the most visible element of your sun pipe as it’s what sits on your ceiling allowing the light to enter the room.  Think of it as the equivalent of a light shade.

Is there a stylish range of diffusers for you to choose from?

The ceiling fitting is the one element of your daylighting system you will see every day. For this reason, we make sure our diffusers and ceiling fixtures make a design statement, offering options that are both stylish, well-made and attractive — as well as functional.

However, Solatube sun tunnel systems don’t just deliver daylight to interiors; they do it with style. Solatube decorative fixtures (or diffusers) enhance the look of any room with designs that range from subtle to stunning.  And with a choice of both round AND square sun tunnel diffusers the Solatube range of ceiling fixtures extends to 10 exciting designs - something that no other manufacturer gets close to.

And to ensure you get that quality look and feel, Solatube doesn’t use vacuum forming to make its diffusers as this tends to result in a flimsy cheap looking ceiling fitting.  Instead, Solatube diffusers are injection moulded which leads to a high quality finish that adds a touch of class to your sun pipe system.


“What a delight it is to have found a system with such great looking diffusers — the glass options are beautiful. That’s why I chose Solatube.” 

Lisa M, Windsor, homeowner 


Diffusers need to be practical too

A diffuser not only needs to look good, it also needs to spread and diffuse light evenly throughout the room.  With the Solatube range of diffusers you can be confident that you won’t end up with a beam of light shining vertically down in to the middle of your room.  These ceiling fixtures ensure that the light is immediately spread throughout the room, covering a large area and flooding the room with daylight.

Prevent heat loss

Not only does the diffuser ensure that light is spread evenly throughout the entire room, they also need to be thermally efficient – preventing heat loss from going up the tube as well as reducing heat gain during sunny days.

Consequently all ceiling fittings should be double-glazed at ceiling level, providing a thermal barrier between your room and the roof void above, thus ensuring that your (expensive) heated air remains in the room below. However, not all systems adopt this common sense practice. Systems that adopt double-glazing further up the tube, say at roof level, risk losing your precious heated air up the tube to be dissipated into the roof void.

Spread the light and chose from the widest and best range of diffusers on the market…
