“maximum amount of
light possible , while guaranteeing that there would be no heat transfer from outside”
Competition Winner for 2018
Hellen from Sunshine in Melbourne’s western suburbs was the lucky winner of a Solatube Skylight
installation as part of the Solatube / Better Homes and Gardens Promotion. The Skylight Shop
carried out the consultation and installation of the job.
The prize included the supply and fitting of a Solatube DS skylight to any part of her house that
required more natural light. Hellen’s house had a very dark kitchen due to the construction of a large
carport adjoining this area. This substantially reduced the amount of natural light coming through
the window above her sink.
We recommended that we fit the Brighten Up 290DS product to give her the maximum amount of
light possible , while guaranteeing that there would be no heat transfer from outside – an important
factor when choosing a skylight for a kitchen , which is one of the most used areas in a home.
Hellen chose the Round Just Frost Diffuser to match in with the rest of the ceiling fittings in the
room. The natural light output from the new Solatube skylight was impressive and dramatically
changed the feel and look of the room, while also cutting out the need to use the downlights during
Solatube invented the tubular skylight system over 30 years ago and continue to offer cutting edge
technology in all of their products. They are the market leaders with clear daylight between them
and their competitors.
