Solatube Wins Coveted A4LE Solution Provider Award

We are proud to announce that we have been named the winner of the 2020 A4LE Solution Provider Award for our Solatube Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs) and Integrated LED Light Kit.

The annual award, sponsored by the Association for Learning Environments, recognizes companies and products that have a profound effect on students, faculty and learning outcomes by creating safe, sustainable, healthy, high performance learning environments.



What are TDDs exactly?

Cost-effective, energy-efficient and eco-friendly, a Solatube Tubular Daylighting Device (TDD) harvests daylight at the rooftop, transfers it down a highly reflective tube (which bends up to 90 degrees and can be up to 70 feet or more long) and distributes it evenly into an interior space through a diffuser at the ceiling — on both sunny and cloudy days — with virtually no maintenance.

With Solatube TDDs, daylight can reach places never thought possible, overcoming limitations associated with windows and traditional skylights in both new and retrofit applications.

TDDs eliminate the need for electric light during the day and the various systems are powerful enough to illuminate windowless classrooms, hallways, large gymnasiums, cafeterias, faculty offices, common areas and even tornado shelters and safe rooms.

Additionally, Solatube is proud to offer the highest Light Transfer Efficiency (LTE), the most consistent Color Temperature Maintenance (CTM) and the best light-to-solar heat gain ratio of any daylighting system on the market – making it an optimal, energy-efficient solution for delivering natural light to create healthy and comfortable learning environments.



The new Integrated LED Light Kit allows the integration of natural light and traditional electric light from a single fixture for a cleaner ceiling appearance and nighttime illumination.

It works by harnessing the sun’s (free) natural light during the day and additionally offers cost- and energy-efficient LED lighting at night. In addition, the high-efficiency LED lighting system includes a dimming option that can be paired with manual and automated dimming controls, which is perfect for schools where lighting control and comfort is important.
