Skylights for Home
Large Corporations, Small Businesses and Individual Households are joining what has been called by some, the Green Revolution. For many people, reducing your Carbon Footprint is seen as a must, in order to sustain the environment and help future generations. The Sky Tunnel is a product that will certainly help you achieve this.
Why use electrical lighting when there is an abundant source of renewable energy available for free – ‘The Sun’. A high percentage of most Electricity Bills is used on lighting areas of buildings during the daytime, when the sun is able to provide enough light… The problem is, you’re probably not utilising this available natural light to its full potential.
Natural light from the sun is a perfect alternative to electric lighting, for all your day lighting needs – The Sky Tunnel does not use electricity. The source of the light (the sun) is free and it’s a renewable energy, so you are reducing your carbon footprint immediately.
It is a well-known fact that sunlight is good for our physical, mental and emotional well-being. Seasonal Affective Disorder (commonly known as ‘Winter blues’) affects nearly half a million people every winter. The cure is light therapy – simple exposure to very bright light (around 10 times the intensity of ordinary domestic lighting) – for 1 to 2 hours per day. Domestic or office lighting only provides 200-500 lux (on average), but the level required to treat SAD is 2500 lux.
On a bright day, a Sky Tunnel can provide between 1000 and 2000 lux – a far healthier option with the advantage of a much reduced impact on the environment.
