Create the Perfect Solution to windowless rooms with a VELUX Rigid Sun Tunnel!
The VELUX Rigid Sun Tunnel solves the problem of dark corners in your property such as corridors, bathrooms, store cupboards and even box rooms. Also known as sun tubes, sun pipes, and light tunnels, come in two sizes, 10” and 14”, is easy to install and comes with its own integrated flashing that can be specified for slates or tiles.
How do I choose between a Rigid and a Flexible Sun Tube? It's recommended for a tunnel length of 0.9m to 6.0m. Supplied with this kit is 1.8m of tunnel and additional length can be made up by using the ZTR extension sections. The key feature that determines the Rigid or Flexible version choice is the roof space. Rigid is ideal for use where there are no obstacles in the roof space such as joists, water tanks and other obstructions in the path of the pipe.
So how much light will a Sun Tunnel give? This depends on the position in the roof and the length of space between the roof and the ceiling above the room it will be lighting. But on the assumption that you will be installing the sun tunnel in an area where there is little natural light at the moment then it is likely to give more illumination than a light bulb! And once installed you are also likely to save energy as there will be less need to switch lights on during the day.
