Benefits of natural light
It has long been known that the natural light of the sun is beneficial for our well-being. Simply notice the bounce in people’s steps and the smiles on their faces when the sun finally peeks out from behind the clouds after an extended absence in the midst of a dreary, cold winter. Most people are fully aware of the impact sunlight can have on emotional well-being. It’s difficult to envision a setting with limited sunlight and smiling inhabitants.
Aside from the emotional benefits, daylight has been shown to have a significant impact on productivity and health. Our eyes and brains simply function more optimally with natural light versus artificial lighting. It has also been observed, especially in comparisons of schools with sufficient daylight over schools reliant on artificial lighting, that children are able to concentrate and maintain focus better when there is ample natural light.
It is not surprising that these observations also signify the benefits of natural light on health and improved energy levels.
Regardless of the sophistication of technology, humans are natural beings in need of natural energy. The sun is our energy source and we are in need of its energy daily in order to function optimally. Fortunately, there are possibilities where technology and natural living can be married to provide the best of both worlds, such as with the Skylight Tube; bringing into a home the benefits of natural light while keeping out the heat and cold. Our Skylight Tubes have been engineered to meet and surpass quality and performance of its competitors outperforming the competition in virtually every key category.
Our entire lineup of Skylight Tubes has been tested for severe weather and all feature hail resistant polycarbonate or upgraded acrylic roof domes.
Our Chroma Skylight Tube 2014ST is specially designed and tested to withstand high wind and pressure in the most severe weather conditions. In fact, our Chroma Skylight Tube can endure a structural load of up to 360 psf (pounds per square foot). Add our Cold Climate Lens Kit, and increase the 2014ST insulation and energy loss reduction effectiveness in particularly frigid winter climates.
**Note: The Skylight Tube is recommended for asphalt shingle roofs only.
