SolaBrite Kitset

Get your custom-designed and manufactured steel building ventilation ducts and other building products designed, built and fitted by Ellflow in Auckland.

Tubular skylights are a cost effective and energy efficient means of using natural light to brighten any room in your home.

They are economical to install and introduce less heat than conventional square or rectangular skylights.

SolaBrite Plus is a tubular skylight that can also help ventilate your home. Ventilation is entirely controllable
and can be closed in winter.

THE FEATURES OF SOLABRITE PLUS

Available in three throat sizes (350mm, 400mm and 500mm) to suit any sized room.

  • High impact acrylic roof dome with insect proof vent tabs.
  • Two high grade, stainless steel reflectors within the throat to maximise the capture of the sun's rays.
  • Two metres of high quality, flexible, reflective foil tubing manufactured for long life.
  • A ceiling diffuser that can be raised to enable warm ceiling air to ventilate to atmosphere and eliminate condensation build up.
  • A choice of soaker trays to suit tile, metal or custom orb profile roofs are available and can be powder coated to match most metal roof colours.

INSTALLATION HINTS

  • The 350mm and 400mm units are ideal for areas such as walk-in-robes, kitchens and modest family rooms. The 500 mm tube suits lounge rooms and extended passageways. To achieve an even spread of light in large rectangular rooms, 2 x 400mm units are the preferred option rather than a single 500mm unit.
  • Both the 350mm and 400mm units fit between roof timbers and can be fitted by a competent handyperson. The 500mm unit may require professional installation if roof timbers are spaced at less than 520mm centres.
  • The dome should preferably face due North to capture maximum light in winter.
  • The flexible tubing works best when fixed in a straight line but can be offset to reach difficult areas. Any bending of the tube will reduce the proportion of reflected light.
