Raybender ® 3000 Technology is a patented component of Solatube products that intercepts low angle light and redirects it down the tube. The light is actually reflected down the tubing at a steeper angle, in order to minimize the amount of times the light must reflect (which reduces light output). The end result is more light! The technology allows the Solatube Daylighting System to capture much more early morning light and early evening light. With this technology, owners of Solatube products can enjoy natural daylight for longer periods of time. Raybender ® 3000 Technology is just one of the components of Solatube products that distinguishes Solatube Daylighting Systems from other Tubular Daylighting Devices on the market.
