Application

The skylights can be installed into new or existing roofs with ease and can be accommodated within most roof construction types.

Description

em.tube™ Tubular Skylights effectively transmit natural daylight to internal rooms or areas that do not receive adequate daylight. Natural daylight is captured at roof level and directed downwards through rigid or flexible tubes and then diffused at ceiling level. With the ventilation options available the units can assist compliance with Building Regulations.

  • Minimal disturbance to roof and ceiling.
  • Comprehensive range of sizes and accessories.
  • Double glazed ceiling diffuser.
  • Low profile polycarbonate UV resistant dome.
