Measuring details are not currently available for this product
UK tests show that a 2m long flexible Sun Tube on a 550mm diameter unit can achieve anything up to 14 times the equivalent of a 100 watt bulb. (1500 lux compared to 105 lux.)
For maximum daylight output the Sun Tube should be located on a south facing roof slope and/or as high as possible, out of any shadow of tall trees and buildings. The Sun Tube should also be installed to give the most direct run from roof to ceiling level.
