Ciralight SunTracker

During the middle of a sunny day, a skylight transmits direct sunlight that creates glare and heat, pushing the skylight into the Red Zone. Our SunTracker spends over twice as long in the Green Zone, (over 50 footcandles) distributing a soft, diffused light and never crossing into the Red Zone. Ciralight SunTrackers are designed to prevent heat gain associated with typical skylights, thus reducing your lighting and HVAC costs.
