Some cool stuff and things to read about.

Welcome to the Southern Daylight Systems blog. Are you mesmerised by the choice of solar tubes, sun tunnels, sun pipes, light tunnels, tubular daylight systems, or whatever you want to call them? There’s seems to be a lot of choice on the market but how do you know whether what you are buying will light up your home with natural daylight or just leave you in the shadows?

Solarspot sun tunnels are independently proven to deliver more daylight than any other solar tube style system. So if you are in the market for a sun pipe system for your home you need to ask yourself what you want from the unit.

If you want a wide selection of diffusers to match your room, even if it means dramatically reducing the daylight that will be delivered, then a Solatube might be the system for you. If you just want something that’s cheap and easy to install, even if it delivers virtually no daylight at all, then a Velux flexible sun tunnel system could be the one for you. However, if you just want the maximum amount of daylight for your home then a Solarspot system is the only choice. Delivering around 70% more daylight than its closest competitor, there’s no brighter system that you can buy – guaranteed.

Below you will find a number of articles that may help you decide of what is the best option for your particular situation. We hope you find them interesting. If you have any questions about fitting a sun tunnel, sun pipe or solar tube you can contact us or by phone on 0333 772 0137. Just call us at any time.
