When we invented the tubular daylighting device back in late 1980s, daylighting wasn't even a term anyone used; now it's ubiquitous.
The first Solatube Daylighting System was sold in 1991 and millions have been installed since.
And as a result, will the value proposition for daylighting
become less about energy savings and more about health and productivity?

South-facing classrooms required solar protection and, to maintain daylighting
, horizontal visors were designed to act as reflectors, bouncing light up on to the ceiling.
northern San Diego County) in the United States, is the exclusive licensee and marketer of Tubular Daylighting
Devices (TDDs) in Europe, Latin America, Central Asia and The Middle East.
You go back to older architecture, and those architects used daylighting
in and out," asserts Nancy Clanton, founder and president of Clanton & Associates and a leading advocate for sustainable design.
systems, which use natural lighting to supplement electric lighting, have the potential to cut energy use, reduce peak demand, and create a more desirable indoor environment, yet these systems often fail to live up to their potential.
In mathematical terms, daylight autonomy is the percentage of annual work hours during which all or part of the lighting needs can be met through daylighting
Make it a Double: A feature story on the Hiram Walker Whiskey Bottling Hall, Dumbarton, Scotland, showed readers how artificial lighting and daylighting
allowed the company to facilitate four "special visual task requirements": bottle filling, bottle capping, labeling and packaging.
A unique state-of-the-art robotic daylighting
system that saves energy and money was unveiled today at Downtown LA Motors Showroom.
is much like piecing together a puzzle, Meek adds.
has been looked upon as an energy-saving technique that provides ambient illumination.
The Integrated Design Labs at the University of Washington in Seattle and University of Idaho in Boise in partnership with New Buildings Institute have developed a free web-based design resource for the implementation of proven daylighting
design strategies in commercial buildings.
