Manufactured with only the finest materials available today, the Skyview® tubular skylight outperforms the competition. The heart of the system is a state of the art, super reflective Silver tube. The Silver is chemically etched to the aluminum, which transmits virtually no solar radiation.
This coating is not a film or a polish. The finish can never delaminate or tarnish which means that the light transmitting properties will be the same in the years to come, as they are the day you install you Skyview® Tubelight.
Our domes come factory sealed to the tube using a leakproof seal method. The outside dome assembly is sealed to the tube section with a high quality silicone sealant. This means there is no sealing of the unit on the jobsite, just a little caulking around the roof jack.
Our tubular skylight installs through a paintable galvanized steel roof jack with a storm collar. By using this method, rather than using a plastic or fiberglass flashing, you are allowed much more flexibility. For instance you may trim the flashing to accommodate whatever roof pitch you have. The flashing is multi pitched from a flat roof application to a 6:12 pitch with a 12:12 pitch flashing available.
The flashing system used is a standard galvanized roof jack, which we know can withstand the harshest of environments. All the glazing is clear UV protected acrylic, which emits full spectrum light. This makes colors in the room that the Skyview Tubelight is installed look much brighter then under conventional skylighting.
The Skyview® Tubelight has a UV absorber incorporated into the reflective coating. It will only allow UVB to pass through. This means that your plants will thrive and fabrics will not fade under this light. It will also completely inhibit mildew growth, making the Skyview® Tubelight perfect for bathrooms, laundry rooms, or anywhere that mildew grows.
When the Skyview® Tubelight is properly installed, it requires no maintenance. That means no dust, cob webs, or bugs in your skylight diminishing the output of light over time. We achieve this by providing high quality seals at all points of entry.
The Skyview® Tubelight comes in two sizes. The 8" model is designed to illuminate up to 150 square feet and the 12" model up to 300 square feet. Both are easily installed and come with a lifetime warranty.
