Solar Wall Tubes
Introduce light into a project easily and efficiently with our new solar wall tubes, which replace standard masonry units.
Glass Block Solar Wall Tubes
Daylighting is increasingly important in buildings today. The more daylight that enters a room, the less energy is needed by electrical systems. Daylighting also has a positive effect on mood, atmosphere, and productivity.
Solar Wall Tubes are an easy and aesthetically pleasing way to let light into a building with multi-wythe walls. The Solar Wall Tubes replace standard masonry units and allow light transmission for LEED contribution.
Superior Thermal Performance
Solar Wall Tubes from Pittsburgh Corning are available in various sizes with your choice of privacy levels. They are thermally broken and thus provide improved thermal performance. In addition, they are easy to install and are self-supporting when installed in a running bond wall. Do not install in stack bond CMU walls unless a lintel is provided.
Solar Wall Tubes are available in 8″ and 16″ modules in various depths to meet wall thickness requirements.
Solar Wall Tubes are perfect for when you want to bring light into commercial buildings without compromising the masonry design. The Glass Block Solar Wall Tube’s mirror-like finish magnifies and reflects the light, solving many design issues related to single or double glass block installations in multi-wythe wall construction. It allows the architectural look of single or double glass blocks on both sides of a thick wall, while providing a visually aesthetic look in the hollow area between the glass blocks. The sturdiness of the metal tube prevents any loading from above the opening being transferred to the glass block.
As with single unit glass blocks, installation includes proper sealing between the edges of the wall and the tube on both the exterior and interior walls.
