How does illume work? illume Skylight Alternative creates harmony between internal and external lighting using Ambient Light Technologu (A.L.T). The system comes to life and adjusts itself as the sun makes its way across the sky. Just like traditional skylights, the light emitted by an illume system is variable based on the angle of sunlight and volume of cloud cover.
The skylight alternative that you can install in any room on any floor of any residential, commercial or public building. Unlike traditional skylights, you don’t require direct roof access to install an illume skylight alternative. You can place an illume panel in any internal space where additional daytime lighting is of benefit including basements, pantries, walk-in wardrobes, internal bathrooms and ground floor living rooms in multi-story floor-plans.
No heat transfer:
Unlike a traditional skylight, room temperature is not compromised by a shaft breaking the integrity of insulation against external conditions. It means that an illume fitted space will retain heat in winter and repel heat in summer more efficiently than a shafted skylight system would thereby further adding to utility cost savings.
Fitting an illume requires no modification to the roof structure. With all roof materials remaining intact, there is no opportunity for water to pool or trickle down through the light diffuser.
illume is entirely powered by solar energy with no mains power or batteries required. Just like a traditional skylight, illume brightens your space during the day reflecting external light conditions and sustainably reducing utility energy costs.
