SUNPIPES DEPLOSUN – A NEW SKYLIGHT

Sunpipes are based on skylights placed on the roofs of the buildings and on highly reflective pipes which transport sun light to the inside of the buildings.

Bring sun light to dark spaces or to spaces without windows and enjoy the advantages without question of daylighting, thanks to the sun pipe.

The result are very bright and lively spaces thanks to daylighting. Transform dramatically the dark spaces and save energy by using a free and sustainable source. The newest technology in skylights.

WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE ESPACIO SOLAR? DISCOVER YOUR BENEFITS

Glass versus plastic

Our domes and skylights are the only ones in the market manufactured with DOUBLE GLASS with internal anti-condensation air chamber that improves the anti-condensation thermal insulation .The externall hardened tempered glass gives it a mechanical resistance to impact and scratch, that is very difficult to achieve with plastics.

aging

It yellows, cracks and looses mechanical properties with the years. Chemical agents can accelerate degradation process.

Glass has not aging process, and its properties get inalterable for years.

scratch

Plastic could be scratched very easily when cleaned or manipulated, loosing light properties.

Glass has a high superficial hardness up to 6,5 mohrs. Will never get scratched nor loose it's light properties.

acoustic

Acoustic isolation is very low because there is only one plastic barrier and a continuous air flow, that lets sound go in and out.

Very high acoustic isolation due to a double glazed window with air chamber and 100% sealed system. We can reach up to 49 dBs in flat top models.

thermal

Monovalve dome 3 mm thick with air flow system offers a very low thermal insulation. Normally up to U=1,9 W/m2-K.

Double glazed window,air chamber and 100% sealed system,will reach down to U=2,8W/m2-K and if we also take into consideration the light pipe it can reach U=1,9W/m2-K.

mechanic

Can’t be used in transit areas because of breaking danger when walking in.

Holds up to 1000 Kg load in the skylight centre, which even bears vehicles (only for FLAT TOP).

PLASTIC DOMES

Double light

The reflective grid DEPLOCELL is a patented system that captures sun light and reflects it toward the inside of the pipe. With that we double the minimum performance of the conventional domes. The reflective grid DEPLOCELL is factory assembled. It’s located inside a double glazed insulation chamber and remains totally protected against dirt and scratch. The deplocell grid is manufactured in aluminium SILVER PLUS98% with a superficial 98% silver treatment according to DIN5030 with 25 year guarantee.

The reflective material guaranties a better stability against UV rays than laminated plastic used by other manufacturers. When installing the DEPLOCELL grid it should be oriented towards the south, to maximize sun capture along the day.

Traditional skylight versus DEPLOSUN tubular skylight

In conventional domes , low rays (winter), hit inside the aluminium pipe with a very low inclination, causing rays to go through multiple reflections before reaching the end of the pipe, that decreases its performance.

DEPLOSUN, tubular skylights with DEPLOCELL technology redirect sun rays inside the pipe reducing the amount of reflections , increasing up to the double the amount of light comparing with traditional domes.

Traditional skylight versus DEPLOSUN tubular skylight

cradletocradle

The only tubular skylight in the market with C2C certificate that guaranties an industrial process that doesn’t impact environment nor reduces industrial activity. World wide leader certification.

Big enterprises have decided to follow that path in order to diminish environment impact.

Aluminium pipe

Aluminium pipe with silver surface treatment SILVER-PLUS with 98% super-reflective factor according to DIN 5036, capable of transferring solar light to 21 m. It is the only reflective pipe in the market 100% metallic and NOT LAMINATED IN PLASTIC, that’s why it will never peel, yellow or crack after a long sun exposure to the UV rays.

It is electrostatically neutral and doesn’t attract powder in suspension. That is why the manufacturer ALANOD gives a 25 year warranty.

Mechanic Resistance up to 1.000Kg
