WITH new green trends no longer being trends, and in fact becoming regulations, builders, architects and institutions are seeking alternative materials when constructing new buildings.

One of the major ingredients to consider is the energy use of a new or retrofitted building — and when it comes to energy bills and environmental impact, artificial lighting is often a big offender.

However, homes, businesses and schools have been increasingly embracing tubular daylighting. This form of daylighting is leakproof, heatproof and provides natural daylight from pre-dawn to post-dusk.

Australian-born and now global, Solatube boasts the world’s best Tubular Daylighting System, with the highest performance guaranteed. It has NFRC approval and the energy and Green Star approvals.
