How bright is a Light Tube?
All tube skylights are bright because of the shafting technology used in modern day sky-lighting. The silver shaft inside the skylight channels and amplifies any light being transmitted outside. When the available light is captured by the light tube the affects are dramatic. It will very quickly turns a dark dingy room into a bright cheery space. You will be surprised how much light just one single light tube will sparkle into a room. Below we have included a guide on room size and which light tube to use accordingly.
An average sized skylight e.g. a 400mm round or square skylight, will throw between 240 – 300 lux in to any chosen room. This amount of lumens generated is more than enough to light any average sized room. Remember, the delivery system of the light tube spreading the light must be considered in these light readings.. We liken it to a hose in the back garden. You could turn on two hoses, running at the same pressure. But when you pinch one of them with your thumb more water pressure results and water reaches further. This is the same case with a light tube, when discussing the brightening of a room.
