Natural light for underground buildings can be a real issue but it can be easily solved with a Solarspot sun tunnel system. If you’re considering extending your home underground, due to restricted space or the high cost of land, then making the most of the space you have at your disposal is paramount. Modern, damp-proof membranes and insulators make warm and dry underground rooms easier to achieve, but once you have them you need to find a way to light them. Solarspot tubular daylighting systems can easily deliver natural light to turn them into bright, homely spaces.
Installing a Solarspot system in any underground or windowless sections of your home can make a difference instantaneously, offering even more light than you would get from a window This is because the system’s light collectors will be facing the light source all day, all year round, while conventional windows look out horizontally so can be impared by neighbouring buildings or over-hanging trees.
Often in underground homes and extensions, the size of aperture you can use for lighting is restricted. A Solarspot sun tunnel tubular daylighting system, can help you maximise not only on the available daylight but also the available space, with the system designed to be discreet – a skylight would need to be much bigger for the same amount of light. In the photo below three Solarspot D-38 solar tube systems flood the room with natural daylight.
