SUNLIGHT PIPE EQUALS FREE HOME LIGHTING

 SUNLIGHT PIPE EQUALS FREE HOME LIGHTING
 ROCKVILLE, Md., April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The SunBox Company issued


the following:
 A new, inexpensive alternative to skylights for natural full spectrum lighting is now available.
 The SunLight Pipe, utilizing a technology developed by the 3M Company solar energy research programs, on a sunny day can efficiently provide the equivalent of up to 10 150-watt light bulbs. Even on a cloudy day, it can provide the equivalent of at least two 100-watt bulbs, at no cost to the user.
 At one-quarter to one-half the cost of a conventional skylight installation, this product is an innovative way to save both money and energy.
 The SunLight Pipe features a 13-inch-wide galvanized aluminum pipe covered on the inside with a patented 3M Super Reflective liner. The size of the pipe allows simple installation without the necessity of cutting joists or rafters. The SunLight Pipe kit includes a high- quality clear acrylic tip dome that allows outside light to enter the pipe. Also included is a white acrylic bottom dome that mounts to the ceiling to distribute non-glare natural light to the entire room. A hardware packet, dome-sealing materials and step-by-step installation instructions complete the kit. Even though the SunLight Pipe is simple to install, professional installation is recommended. Roof flashing and storm guards are available at hardware stores.
 The SunBox Company of Rockville was chosen to be the exclusive distributor of the SunLight Pipe because of its leadership position in providing the full spectrum natural lighting units used in light therapy research for the treatment of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and sleep disorders.
