Natural daylight enlivens the interior in ways that an ordinary lamp cannot. It is especially important when it comes to the colder period of the year.
For all those who need a solution for the introduction of daylight in rooms where it is not possible to install skylights, the company VELUX provided a solution light tunnels for sloping and flat roofs. With VELUX light tunnel it is possible to get natural light even in the darkest parts of the attic, because it transmits light up to 6 meters into the room below. They are ideal for small rooms and narrow spaces – such as hallways, bathrooms and rooms without natural light. They are a great solution, even when the days are cloudy and winter.
The tunnel can be with a flexible and a non-flexible tube. The light tunnel with a flexible tube is ideal for distances from 0.4 m to 2 m between the roof and the ceiling. It is packed with 2m reflective flexible tube with a diameter of 35cm. It is possible to install a ZTL lighting set in the tunnels, which makes them a source of light even at night. Flexible tunnels can be used when the distance between the roof and the ceiling is too small for a rigid, inflexible tunnel. Rigid tunnels provide a direct beam of light when the ceiling is located just below the outside window.
VELUX light tunnel can be installed on tiled roofs (TWF / TWR) or on slate roofs (TLF / TLR). Light tunnels for pitched roofs can be installed on roofs with a slope of 15 ° -60 °, and for flat roofs should be VELUX light tunnel for flat roof.
VELUX roof tunnels can be installed on flat roofs with a roof pitch between 0 ° and 15 ° (VELUX code: TCF / TCR).
They fit perfectly in hallways, stairs, pantries, but also bathrooms and rooms where it is not possible to install a skylight.
VELUX flexible tunnels and rigid tunnels make installation flexible. Flexible tunnels can be used when the angle between the roof and the ceiling is too small for a rigid tunnel. Rigid tunnels provide a direct beam of light when the ceiling is located just below the outside window.
The light tunnels also feature enhanced diffuse glass that comes with a clear glass ring, providing spectacular lighting effects. This ring provides better light propagation throughout the room, allowing you to experience a change in light during the day like never before.
