Solatube Australia were engaged to provide the best solution for both natural light control and thermal performance. Certainly not an easy task, given the variables, but one upon which Solatube could draw upon experience.

A total of 60 x 330Ds Solatube commercial daylighting systems fitted with OptiView Diffusers were installed into the grocery aisles, with a result which exceeded the client's expectations. The Solatube natural daylighting performance was particularly evident during the Tasmanian winter, where the grocery aisles illumination, were much brighter than prior to the Solatube installation.

Store Manager Greg Hind commented "Solatube Daylighting Systems' bright natural light transforms the shopping experience in our store, coupled with significant energy savings on our lighting bill".
