Commercial DaylightShaping ™ with OptiView

VISTA, CA, UNITED STATES, July 12, 2021 / – Solatube® International Inc., the world’s leading manufacturer and marketer of tubular daylight, continues to strive to bring the most advanced, energy-efficient daylight technology on the market to Devices (TDDs ), introduced its latest technological innovation to its commercial line of products, the OptiView® Shaping Diffusers.

The next-generation OptiView Shaping Diffuser lens technology uses state-of-the-art microreplicated lens technology with pseudo-randomized lens orientations that precisely direct and control nature’s dynamic light source – and deliver highly scattered, evenly distributed natural light without glare, aberrations or flash. This enables the architect and / or designer to modify the lens patterns in order to achieve different light distributions for different visual effects.

It’s not always easy to keep things simple, especially when working with sunlight, but with the new OptiView Shaping Diffusers it goes without saying to keep the ceiling surfaces simple. The OptiView diffusers ensure a contemporary frost look that blends harmoniously into the ceiling level and one below the other. For further simplification, this new technology can even be combined with the Solatube Integrated LED Light Kit, so that natural light and highly efficient LED lighting can be integrated from a single luminaire.

With the new OptiView DaylightShaping technology, the possibilities are endless. The options available include:
• OptiView Wide – use for ambient lighting and / or wallwashing lighting
• OptiView Superwide – use for exceptional wallwashing and volumetric daylight
• OptiView Narrow – Used to highlight specific objects in a room and create pools with high light levels

“The ability to use clearly unique daylight distribution patterns to create different layers of daylight for a bespoke daylight visual environment while maintaining a consistent, visually optimized appearance across the ceiling is a game-changing innovation for the design community,” said Neall Digert. Ph.D., MIES, Vice President of Solatube International.

Cost-effective, energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, a Solatube TDD captures daylight on the roof, guides it through a highly reflective tube and distributes it evenly into the interior through a diffuser on the ceiling – both on sunny and cloudy days – with practically no maintenance. Solatube prides itself on delivering the highest light transmission efficiency (LTE), the most consistent color temperature maintenance (CTM) and the best light-to-solar heat gain ratio of any daylight system on the market.

The first Solatube product was sold in 1991 and today more than 2 million people have upgraded their homes with Solatube TDDs and millions more have enjoyed the benefits in department stores, schools, hotels, hospitals, grocery stores, offices and sports facilities. Well-known Fortune 500 brands have improved their customers’ experience while reducing their energy bills by adding Solatube products to their stores, offices and facilities.
