Hometech are excited to announce that Solatube TDDs (Tubular Daylighting Devices) are among the first innovations to have received the “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution” Label by The Solar Impulse Foundation!
The Solar Impulse Foundation works closely with the United Nations and collaborates with government organisations such as the European Commission, World Bank and UNESCO, and in this quest to bridge the gap between ecology and economy they aim to select and promote 1,000 economically profitable solutions worldwide that protect the environment.
The “Solar Impulse Efficient Solution”-label is awarded to innovations that combine technical feasibility criteria, positive social and environmental impact and economic profitability, and serves as a guarantee of quality to those looking to implement clean solutions. Solatube was selected under the SDG11 - Solutions for sustainable cities and communities category.
TDDs have become the ideal solution for lighting interiors in a cost-effective, energy-efficient and eco-friendly way because they significantly reduce the need for electricity while keeping people connected to the outdoor environment. The incorporation of optical technologies significantly improves the way daylight is captured and delivered to interiors.
Solatube Daylighting Systems are modular and easy to connect to ceiling systems, and unlike traditional skylights they are designed to control the problematic aspects of sunlight. Glare and inconsistent light patterns are reduced while they also screen infrared rays that can overheat interiors as well as ultraviolet rays that can fade furniture and fabrics, making it a perfect solution for so many homes, workplaces and other settings.
