Although several decades ago most illuminating engineers subscribed to the philosophy that "brighter is better," our understanding of real lighting needs has expanded to the point where few professionals still have this point of view. Now days, the aim is to study the needs of people within the visual environment and create a lighting circumstance which maximizes their visual comfort. In general, this means providing a controllable soft general lighting environment which is free of glare, veiling reflections or hot spot.

Daylight harvesting optimizes the lighting with full spectrum light while being as energy efficient and environmentally conscious as possible by utilizing renewable sun light. This can be accomplished easily, quickly and affordable with Tubular Skylight, Inc's customized designs. Start with our basic Daylighting System to receive beautiful soft non glaring energy efficient free renewable natural light. The Eclipse Dimming System easily controls the natural sunlight to the preferred light level maximizing visual comfort levels. Then, add our Hybrid Electric Lighting Systems with dimming ballast auto controlled by daylight sensors, saving up to 95% of daytime lighting load. Our designs also allow for costumed sizes, as well as varying roof and ceiling applications.

NASA Tested and Installed

 
Although this building had recently been retrofitted with T-8 lamps,
the users were experiencing problems with low light levels along the walls during soldering procedures. Tubular Skylight Inc.'s Daylighting System was installed as an additional light source. The interior lens evenly diffuses the sunlight to illuminate the walls as well as the entire space. The NASA Technology Outreach Program did extensive analysis and tests. The findings proved the product to be an effective energy conservation measure (ECM) and qualifies as a solar and other renewable energy source (Passive Daylighting System).
