Why Eco Lighting Systems are a Must have in Your New Commercial Roof

The need of the hour is for eco-friendly building solutions and today, people across Australia are an option for renewable sources of energy like solar power to light their homes and other green products across their homes and office spaces.

And so, when it comes to interior lighting, people automatically look for eco-friendly options too. In this aspect, Eco Lighting is the latest technology. At the outset there were companies that manufactured skylights which could effectively capture daylight and transfer it into the interior spaces of a commercial space and light up areas that had less natural light.

The Perfect Alternative

Today, this technology has advanced even further, and Eco-Lighting is available as tubed-systems. What makes these systems much more effective and different from skylights is that they provide much more light than standard skylights that are much larger in size. Though many commercial buildings rely on massive skylights, they pose certain practical issues. Installing Eco-Lighting eliminates these issues and brings in a lot of natural light into indoor spaces.

An even more advanced version of this technology, now integrates LED lights into daylighting systems. The final result is and a smart-LED lighting system which provides a 24-hour home lighting solution & delivers upto 94% of energy savings. So, what exactly are these Eco-Lighting systems? How do they work and what are their benefits?

What they Are

Eco Lighting systems are large tubes that are fitted into the roofing systems. These tubes lead down into the interior spaces of a home/ office/ industrial space. They have glass distractions & decorative lighting fixtures and look like any other light fitting in the ceiling. These large tubes channel natural light into the room. As a matter of fact, it is a free option to any kind of electric lighting.

The Technology

These Eco Lights are made of a highly-reflective material. It channels the light right from the roof/outer walls of the building into any targeted space. Its entrance point is the roof/outer walls have a domed roof; this is directly connected to a tube. This light is then reflected right-off the tube & into the area/room that has a diffuser at the other end. The natural light from sun’s solar energy is a perfect alternative to a number of our day-lighting needs. It’s free to use, great for areas that have a lot of sunlight and is a sustainable resource.
