Natural Light From Tubular Daylighting Devices

February 26th, 2018

Most of us know that being exposed to natural light is good for our health and it has been shown that daily exposure to natural light can enhance mental and physical well-being, boost concentration and energy levels.

Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs) are also referred to as Tubular Skylights and they are an effective way to bring natural light into the home or any where there are dark spaces indoors.

TDD’s are “high technology” skylights which use various technologies to increase the capture of natural light at the roof level, have a specular reflective tubing to direct most of the daylight they capture to the ceiling level and then offer a selection of diffusers to maximise the intensity of the light and improve the visual presentation of the natural light.

TDDs ( sometimes called “tubular skylights,” “light tubes,” “sun pipes,” and even “light tunnels,”tend to have much smaller cross-sectional areas than conventional skylights because of their efficiency at capturing and transferring light.

Advantages of a TDD over a conventional skylight include:

Being able to offset the roof top structure from the ceiling so that the light can be “bent”.
Better colour rendition than aluminium light shafts.
Lower heat loss and heat gain.
Product and installation costs for a TDD are considerably less than other daylighting options, such as windows and skylights.
Installation is fast, clean and easy because there is no need for structural reframing, tunneling, drywalling or painting.
DIY in one day.
Compact and flexible design means they will fit almost anywhere.
Environmentally friendly reducing power costs.
