Tubular skylights designed for commercial applications
Every tubular skylight that I have ever seen was born out of the residential field. Small round domes with round tubes coated with highly reflective material allowed the light into the interior space cheaper than a typical skylight. Until now.
Entech, which has been in the solar optics technology for twenty five years, decided to get into the tubular market. However, they decided to design a commercial tubular product from the ground up. With a blank slate and an open mind their highly educated and skilled engineers designed the ultimate tubular skylight. The differences to the residential skylight are obvious. The reasons for the differences come to light (Pun intended) when you deal with the installation and see the results. Look for more blog posts that will expound upon these reasons.
