At roof level … 
The Solatube inner dome, insulated flashing and flashing insulator combine 
to provide greater insulation at roof level. 
 
In the tube … 
The Solatube Climate Control Lens provides additional compartmentalisation to minimize air movement, and the multi-layer foil to BS/EN 12667 & ISO8302 (0.0345W/m2K) ensures the tube is highly insulated. 
 
At diffuser level … 
The Solatube Vusion ceiling diffuser is already double-glazed by means of the Effect Lens situated just above it.
