How Bright Is the Light From A Tubular Skylight?
Natural Light Tubular Skylights illuminate the equivalent of up to 300 to 1,450 watts of incandescent lighting varying on the model installed (see chart below), but without the heat gain of traditional lighting. Additionally, Natural Light Tubular Skylights filter out 99% of the harmful UV rays that fade furniture and carpeting. And because they operate using free solar power, Natural Light Tubular Skylights are energy efficient and will help reduce your electric bills!

Natural Light Tubular Skylights Are Engineered to be the Best!
The main component of the Natural Light Tubular Skylight is a super reflective, mirror-like light pipe with a 98% reflectivity rate. The entire length of the pipe’s interior is coated with the reflective surface that is responsible for bouncing sunlight several times as it travels through the tube. This material, called Miro-Silver®, is used on all Natural Light Tubular Skylights. Miro-Silver has been rated one of the best in its category.
