Lightway - Lord of the Daylight

Lightway crystal sun tunnels bring healthy daylight into your home or workplace.

In association with

Lightway brings daylight into buildings with its 3 main parts:

  • On the roof or side wall is a crystal glass dome or daylight collector
  • The tube, with sterling silver as one of the reflective layers, reflects daylight into dark rooms
  • The daylight diffuser column, made from crystal glass, effectively spreads daylight around the room
Lightway Galaxy 1200. Typical placement of sunlight collector on the roof. The active mirrored surface is covered with special glass. Sunlight is then led into the building itself through a 520mm diameter tube. Meanwhile, the collector surface has a diameter of 1,200 mm, which ensures huge performance and plenty of daylight inside the building.

Fresh sunlight brought through the sun tunnel enters the crystal glass column and flows through its body; the load-bearing construction of the column is steel, and massive crystal components are stacked horizontally. In the lower part, the light column is equipped with modern light source ceramic core chips, imparting an upwards flow of light.

Lightway sun tunnels can bring daylight into windowless rooms, such as basements, in various ways. They transmit healthy sunlight collected from roofs and sidewalls down into rooms where natural light is limited. Pictured are the inner rooms of a building where windows cannot be installed.

Typical placement of light collector Lightway F400 is on the exterior wall of the building. Under the glass one can see the main mirror inside, with a layer of pure silver, which collects daylight and sends it through the sun tunnel tubing and into the building.
