illume better than a skylights is unique, as it is only 10mm in thickness, which allows it to fit flush into the gyprock, which is also 10mm thick. Alternatively, if you are installing in an apartment and the ceiling is actually concrete, rest assured, we have the answer. We can also provide you with what we call a “surface mount” unit. Simple a bracket is fitted to the ceiling and the illume fits neat and tidy into the frame.
The majority of illumes are recessed, where a hole is cut out from the template. Once an illume is installed, it is safe to reinstate the insulation over the back of the illume to ensure the property remains protected from the weather elements.
When finding the right illume for you we do have a guide to recommend the square meter coverage for each illume, however aesthetics and positioning do play a part when considering the right illume for you. If you are unsure please speak to one of our accredited dealer installers for a free quote.
Often the question is asked, what happens at night? Well like a traditional skylight an illume fade out as the sun goes down, however you have the option to have your illume connected to the mains power using our AC Driver. Click here to learn more.
Sometimes your illume may be just that too bright for you, then we have the answer to resolve that. We can provide you with a dimmer remote control. The dimmer allows you to turn on or off and also soften the light. Note; if you turn your remote off it will automatically turn its self-back on the next day once it becomes daylight, so not recommended for bedrooms unless you don’t mind the light on early.
