    Many skylights are rather disappointing once installed providing far less light than hoped for but the Solatube has technology that provides up to 99.7% of the natural light into the room below (even around bends in the pipe). The attached document shows the options. Reduce your lighting costs in the darker areas of your building(s) with Solatube and enjoy healthier natural light.
