Brighten Up and SolaMaster Tubular Skylights
Solatube International, Inc.
Solatube is the world's leading manufacturer of tubular skylights. For residential and smaller commercial applications, the Brighten Up® series is available in 10" and 14" units and features Solatube's patented Spectralight® Infinity tubing material, and two patented technologies to intercept and collect low angle sunlight. The SolaMaster® Series, featuring a 21" unit, is suitable for commercial buildings and larger residential areas and accommodates a wide variety of ceilings. Installing one 21" SolaMaster can displace approximately two traditional light fixtures, each using three F032T8 fluorescent lamps, according to the manufacturer. Seamless one-piece flashing is available in both the Brighten Up and SolaMaster series. All Solatube skylights are offered with optional light kits, and the 10" Brighten Up unit is available with an optional ventilation fan. A motorized "Daylight Dimmer" butterfly baffle, which is controlled by a wall-mounted switch, is also available for all sizes, adjusting the skylight's output from 100% to approximately 2%.
