Solar Skylight - REDi-lite™
The REDi-lite Solar Hybrid Skylight alternative offers a Green Energy solution for light starved areas around the home or office and is becoming a product of choice for ever increasing high density housing environments where shading from other buildings encroaches.
The REDi-lite Spectra system can be installed in almost any location unlike traditional skylights where building structure and difficult roof lines can often dictate placements.
How does it work?
It works much the same as a skylight with a sun up sun down effect. As the sun rises, the light gets brighter; then as the sun goes down, the light intensity reduces. It behaves just like a traditional skylight.
Free to operate - The REDi-lite light doesn’t cost one cent to operate whilst being powered by the sun..
yes that’s right, FREE Light!
Options - A Special feature of the SPECTRA system is its ability to incorporate a Day/Night kit which enables the same lights to be used at night or during the day for full powered light.
Quality - Using only the highest of quality componentry coupled with exceptional warranties, the REDi-lite system aims to deliver years of trouble-free uninterrupted light.
Solar Skylight - illume™
illume™ Shaftless™ Solar Skylight Systems add the ambience of natural looking light, similar to traditional skylights, but without the challenge and expense of modifying the roof cavity and the need to install a light shaft or flexible tube. illume™ offers a range of possibilities for home renovators who can now create beautiful ambient light in areas where traditional skylights can’t be fitted.
How does it work?
illume™ automatically comes to life and adjusts itself as the sun makes its way across the sky. As with traditional skylights, the light emitted from an illume™ system is also affected by the presence of sunlight, cloud cover or overcast conditions creating the feeling of harmony between external and internal lighting conditions.
Reasons to choose illume™
- Requires no mains power or batteries
- No running costs
- Easy install
- No light shaft
- Suits multi-level dwellings
- No insects collecting in the light diffuser
- Fully sealed - no leaks or heat transfer

Roof Ventilation is an inexpensive way to improve your homes comfort level and energy cost savings by boosting the efficiency of your insulation and air conditioner.
Summer: Roof space temperatures can reach a staggering 60⁰C. Heat radiates downwards causing discomfort in living areas and forces air conditioners to work harder. Even the effectiveness of ceiling insulation can be reduced by the additional heat load.
Winter: During the colder months water vapour from shower and cooking is drawn into roof spaces and condenses. This can render insulation ineffective, cause mildew on walls and ceilings and contribute to a damp environment.
At Skyvac Skylights we install Whirlys, MaxBreeze® Solar Ventilation, Rectangular and Triangular Gable vents.
Insulation plays a vital role in increasing the comfort of your home by stabilising internal temperatures and reducing noise transmission. Importantly, insulation also helps reduce energy costs for heating and cooling which is good for the family budget and the environment.
Without insulation as much as 42% of a homes heat can transfer through the ceiling alone.
The thermal performance of an insulation batt is determined by its R- value. This is an internationally accepted measure of its ability to resist the flow of heat. The higher the R – value the more effective the insulation.
At Skyvac we use and recommend products from Fletcher Insulation Pink batts and Autex green stuff.
We have competitive prices on wall and ceiling insulation batts and we can deliver to your site in the Southern Highlands area. Alternatively we can arrange installation by our experienced installers.
