When someone is trying to sell you something, they will usually try to convince you that theirs is the best, but it is important to check they can back that up with independent data. When we say that our sun pipes are the brightest and most efficient on the market, you can rest assured that we can prove it. Independent daylight experts at the Building Research Establishment (BRE) carried out tests comparing our Solarspot sun tunnels with the market leaders.
The BRE is an entirely impartial testing and training organisation who offer expertise on every aspect of the built environment and associated industries. They tested our Solarspot D-38 system and compared it to a Solatube 290DS and a Sunpipe 450 to discover which was the most efficient at delivering daylight. All these systems are over 2 metres long and were tested under an overcast sky (a fairly regular occurence in Britain!).
The tests showed that our Solarspot D-38 is almost half as efficient again as its closest rival. For the end user, this means brighter rooms and more light delivered even on dismal days. If you chose a Solarspot D-38 over a Solatube 290DS, you would be receiving 69% more light in the same conditions. It’s clear which is the best sun tunnel!
