What is a diffuser and how does it work?
It is the natural ‘light fitting’ below the ceiling line (held by a polycarbonate ring ), which is also called a lens due to its curvature. The harsh sunrays bouncing down the Mirrortube® are broken up (dispersed) horizontally within this lens into thousands of radiant mini lights, which in effect disperses the incoming day light below. We do not use a prismatic material pattern which cast unsightly light patterns on the floor and walls, so the light is evenly spread.

Right from the first moment I phoned their company I was impressed with the professional way I was treated as a customer on the phone by Trevor who received my call.
The appointment was set for Monday morning at 08:00. At exactly 08:00 their van stopped in front of my home. The two young gentlemen that got out was polite and without any waste of time immediately started with their job. All the questions that I asked were answered professionally and politely. I could see that they knew exactly what they were doing, and in a very short time both skylights were fitted and I was amazed at the precision with which they did the task, and even more impressed with the absolute massive difference that these skylights brought to my home.
This is a company and a product that I can recommend to anyone who has a room where natural light is not a given. I can also highly recommend the personnel of Lighthouse Skylights for quick, efficient and brilliant service. Their team of installers are very skilled and well trained. They even cleaned up after themselves and left me with only amazement of a job well done.
Feel free to call them for quick and professional service.
