Here at Hometech, we can never stop raving about how Solatube skylights provide bright, natural lighting unmatched by any other traditional skylight. However, while Solatube skylights are a great addition to any home, this doesn’t mean they’re a one-size-fits-all daylighting solution.
Solatube skylights have a number of innovative accessories you can add to tailor your daylighting experience and customise it to suit your exact needs. Check out your options below:
1. Daylight Dimmer
While one person may like a brightly-lit room all day every day, not everyone will have the same preference. You may think:
“What if the Solatube is too bright?” or “What if I want to take a nap in the living room?”
This is where our daylight dimmers come in. Daylight dimmers offer optimal daylight control with a wall-mounted switch. They use a patented butterfly baffle to block out or let in as much or as little daylight as you wish, giving you the convenient ability to completely regulate the daylight entering your space.
2. Natural Effect Lens
Fancy a warmer light and some insulation? The Natural Effect Lens range offers additional insulation to your Solatube daylighting system while allowing you to alter the light’s output colour, intensity, or both. You can also pair any of our effect lenses with Decorative Fixtures or Diffusers to add insulation properties comparable to double-glazing - reducing heat loss and maximising heat gain.
3. Ventilation Add-on Kit
If you’re thinking of lighting up your laundry or kitchen space with a Solatube, then the ventilation add-on kit is its perfect companion. This ventilation kit will allow trapped humidity caused by steamy showers and laundry washes to escape your home - preventing condensation and issues with dampness. It also comes in one stylish fixture, leaving your ceiling neat and your space dry.
4. Solar Electric Nightlight
While daylighting is our specialty, we still want to provide Kiwis with light for those late-night trips to the bathroom. Our Solar Electric Nightlight collects the sun’s energy by day with a solar panel mounted into a Solatube, powering a nightlight that automatically turns on at night. This unique product emits a soft, moonlight glow from overhead until there’s daylight again. It also doesn’t require a switch – making it perfect for little ones, or anyone who might have to fumble for a switch on those bathroom trips in the wee hours of the night.
