MaxLight Tubular Skylights

MaxLight skylights are designed and manufactured in Australia by SolarBright with an industry best 20-year warranty on the tube.

If you’re looking for a  top quality skylight, then you can’t go wrong with the innovative and effective MaxLight® tubular skylight. With a specially constructed dome, this product has been specially engineered to capture the most sunlight possible, while our diffusers ensure an even spread of light and keep out the heat.

The MaxLight® series of skylights by SolarBright set a new benchmark for daylighting skylight systems made in Australia. The range comes in three different models (diameter sizes), the ML250 and the ML400 for residential skylight solutions, and the ML500 for commercial skylight applications.

Options and accessories for the skylights include remote controlled solar powered dimmers, a choice  of diffusers and trims.


MaxLight Skylight Key Features and Technology

Using cutting edge technology, like our RayCatcher® Dome and Miro-Silver Tube®, the MaxLight skylights deliver brighter, more natural and healthier light into your home than any other Australian made energy rated tubular skylight of this kind.


The advanced optical RayCatcher dome with its hail resistant shape, is the optimum in light capturing technology. The durable injection moulded dome with a crystal clear surface, is designed to capture maximum sunlight with its crystal‐clear surface, even in low light situations.


The Miro-Silver anodised aluminium tube has the highest reflectivity for an anodized aluminium surface to deliver pure daylight colour into the room. Tubes in many competitor products use laminated polymer mirror surfaces that deteriorate and de-laminate under UV light. The MaxLight skylight tube does not, hence the industry leading 20 year warranty when most others just have 10-years.


The Auroramax Triple Lens Diffuser Technology is designed to allow the light to enter rooms and spreads the pure light evenly with no hot spots. Many competitor skylights only feature a single lens diffuser and hence are not energy rated like the MaxLight.

There is a choice of different diffusers for the MaxLight skylight, including a square hybrid diffusor for the ML400.

The MaxLight technology combined with the leading 20 year warranty, outstanding performance and our highly competitive pricing, ensure MaxLight skylights are excellent value for money.
