Solatube International Announces New Daylight Dimmer for SkyVault Series from Solatube International


     Solatube International Announces New Daylight Dimmer for SkyVault Series


Innovation continues to be a focus at Solatube


In a move that illustrates its continued commitment to innovation, Solatube International Inc., the worldwide leading manufacturer and marketer of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), introduced a Daylight Dimmer for its SkyVault Series. The SkyVault Series, featuring the largest TDD yet with a 29-inch diameter, is specifically designed for high-bay commercial applications, including convention centers, warehouses, auditoriums, sports arenas, manufacturing facilities, gymnasiums, hotel ballrooms/meeting spaces, and more.


While SkyVault’s main purpose is to provide an abundant amount of daylight to large spaces or direct it for task lighting, there are instances where dimming capabilities are needed, such as presentations, movies, plays, concerts, and dramatic effect (bringing in a sports team).


The Daylight Dimmer features Solatube’s patented butterfly baffle designed to ensure even light distribution throughout the space, reduced “flares” when opening/closing, near total black-out when fully closed and is lined with the company’s Spectralight Infinity material to maximize light transfer when open.


The SkyVault Series and Daylight Dimmer fully integrate with digital lighting controls for easy, synchronous operation..


“It’s a whole new ballgame with the Daylight Dimmer as an option for our SkyVault Series,” said Robert E. Westfall Jr., president of Solatube International. “Now high-bay spaces have the ultimate flexibility for lighting – SkyVault units bring in copious amounts of daylight but can be dimmed or completely darkened for presentations and the like.”
