The Solatube Ø 53 cm is the most commonly used daylight tube in commercial buildings. The Solatube Ø 53 cm has a large daylight output and therefore transports daylight to every room or area in a commercial building, such as meeting rooms, offices, but also workshops and warehouses. This Solatube can be used on all types of roofs. We would suggest a maximum ceiling height of up to 14 metres for the Solatube Ø 53 cm system.
Round and square
The Solatube Ø 53 cm is available with various ceiling diffuser style options in both a round or square finish. The round variant can be used in open areas without a ceiling such as warehouses and distribution centres. The square ceiling option is designed to fit into a standard 60 cm square suspended grid ceiling system and is also available with a recessed ceiling finish suitable for concrete or plasterboard ceilings.
The Solatube Ø 53 cm can be used on all types of roofs and facades. The flat roof flashing is suitable for all types of roof coverings such as EPDM, PVC, TPO, Bitumen, CPE. There is also a fully insulated prefabricated flat roof flashing available for optimal thermal insulation, if required.
The Solatube Ø 53 cm pitched roof flashing comprises of Ubiflex, a non-lead waterproof flashing material manufactured from reinforced aluminium mesh with a mixture of modified bitumen, which makes installation quick and easy.
In addition to flashings for corrugated iron, profiled steel or thatched roofs there is also an option available to install a Solatube Ø 53 cm through a vertical wall or the façade of a building.
In addition to the standard applications, the Solatube Ø 53 cm can also be used in a number of unusual applications, such as lighting fauna and bicycle tunnels. A special variant of the Solatube Ø 53 cm system – the ‘IceTube’ has also been developed for use in cooling and freezing environments. If your potential application is not listed, please do not hesitate to contact us.
As the sun does not always shine (or, on the contrary, if there is a need for less daylight), it is possible to integrate various optional accessories into this Solatube system, such as an artificial (electrical) light fitting, a daylight dimmer and even a bathroom ventilation system. If required, security and fire protection options are also available.
