illume™ Advanced Skylight Systems

illume_box.jpg

A new "shaftless" skylight system that you can install anywhere.

illume™ adds the ambience of natural lighting to buildings where under normal circumstances a traditional skylight could not be fitted. If you are building, renovating, or designing a living space you can now include the harmonious aesthetic of sky lighting in your home without learning a trade. illume can also easily be installed in high rise apartments or multi-storey housing, even in the basement.

As with traditional skylights, elements such as the time of day and the presence of cloud cover also affect the lighting levels that illume emits. We call this ‘ambient light technology’ and it ensures that illume behaves exactly as a traditional skylight would by creating a balanced harmony between internal and external lighting conditions. The difference is that the illume advanced skylight system isn’t restricted to locations with direct roof access.

The illume easy do-it-yourself system can be easily installed by practically anyone. You won’t need tradesmen, you don’t need to install a light tube or flexible shaft.

illume PREMIUM™ custom trade packs offer a harder wearing more robust skylight solution for building and commercial environments.

In addition to the brilliance of the original illume™ system, our PREMIUM™ range systems include the following:
   
Bullet Expanded range with larger sized commercial models Bullet Cabling can be run during frame stage (Not with retail)
Bullet Heavy-duty terminal box Bullet Run multiple illume lights from the same source (Request)

So, how does illume work?
   
illume_system.jpg

Once the illume solar collector is mounted on your roof, the sun's energy is harnessed and converted using the patent pending ambient light technology system. This system outputs through the illume control module which in turn powers the illume skylight panel. The patented ambient light technology system automatically adjusts the skylight panel output to match external conditions. This means that as the sky clouds over or the sun sets, so does the light output of illume.
