Natural light lifts spirits, makes spaces appear larger, and reveals our world in its true color. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, it also reduces eyestrain, increases our productivity, and lessens electrical demand. Unfortunately, today's buildings rarely have enough natural light.

But, now it's possible to change that with affordable, yet highly advanced tubular skylights. Using a revolutionary, innovative design, you can capture sunlight on your rooftop, redirect it down a highly reflective shaft, then diffuse it throughout your interior space. The result is remarkable, see for yourself. The product is Solatube®, The Miracle Skylight.

Solatube International Inc. patented the first tubular skylight over 15 years ago. Since then, Solatube has been dedicated to manufacturing a technologically superior, high quality product. Over the years Solatube has become the largest and most trusted manufacturer of tubular skylights in the world.

Need to light a small space, such as a bathroom, hallway, or walk-in closet? Choose the compact 10" Solatube. Use the 14" Solatube to bathe your large living areas in sunlight. It’s also perfect for kitchens, bathrooms, stairwells, home offices, and entryways.
