As children we cast sunlit shapes onto the walls with a mirror.
As adults we are now able to bring the sun directly into dim rooms anywhere in the house.

Glass dome

The Lightway glass dome collects the rays of the sun from the roof and sends them down into the light tube even under overcast skies. Why do we use crystal and not plastic? Our glass dome resists aging even under intense exposure to UV rays. Plastic is easily damaged by UV, airborne dust, smog, and other pollution. With crystal you do not have to worry about these harmful elements.

Light tube

Inside the Lightway light tube, sunlight flows just like water. The interior mirrors are exceptionally efficient due to the extreme reflectivity of their surface, composed of pure silver and quartz. Others produce these mirrors from polished aluminum or reflective foil glued inside the tubes. Unfortunately, both of these material variations produce less light and wear out sooner. Lightway even guarantees its light pipes for25-years.

Blue Performance

Blue Performance Technology prevents heat loss from the building in winter, and in summer it conversely reduces excess heating. If you choose Lightway, you’ll spare yourself condensed water leaking onto the floor with every change in temperature, which could spoil your enjoyment of indoor sunlight. For the technologically-minded, the measured thermal resistance value is 0.4 W/m.K. Blue Performance technology is patented.

Glass diffuser

A glass diffuser of collected natural light serves to limit the glare of sun rays and spread them evenly throughout the space so that light reaches every corner. You know how unpleasant it is when someone reflects the sun into your eyes with a mirror? That’s why we don’t let the light at the end of the tube flow freely from the ceiling. We have to soften the intensity of individual light rays and scatter them properly to avoid creating a glare and light all areas of the room equally. To this end Lightway again utilizes real glass instead of the commonly used plastic diffusers that are easier to produce. Unlike plastic, glass can endure for a hundred years unchanged, without yellowing and scratching, all the while letting through sunlight without intensity losses. What’s more, glass does not destroy the natural colors of light, which are important for the human eye. One more reason to choose crystal glass over plastic? Sun light and crystal glass is a combination producing true beauty.

When there is no chance to collect the light on the roof,
we have solution to collect it from the side of the building.

Lightway system collects the light on the roof passing it via special "tube", with reflective inner
patented coating, forwarding light into the building. The space without the windows and
natural light is now lighted brightly with pure sun light.

Natural day light can enhance the character of crystal glass.

Some of the types of the light diffusers are built of massive, hand brushed crystal glass. Architect proposes the
design of the interior glass component, Lighway will manufacture and install it into the building, bringing the
day light inside. The sun light and crystal diffuser create unique event for the sight. Take a look to some of the
examples here.

Concorde

Diffuses sunlight brought through the sun tunnels into the room and illuminates the space. Shining with sunlight, these massive crystal glass stalactites are made from internationally renowned Bohemia Crystal.

The massive crystal glass cones hang from a stainless steel base. It is wonderful to observe how it presents sunlight and how the colours take full advantage of the additional beauty lighting the room.

Length: 200 mm to 500 mm
Diameter: 600 mm or 800 mm
Weight: 120 Kg

Solus

Sunlight brought inside the building is led through the room’s ceiling and into crystal glass rods of 5 mm or 10 mm diameters. They are hung on a transparent base. The weight-bearing construction is comprised of steel. The crystal glass rods emit a myriad of sunlight rays into the space of the room.

Diameter: 600 mm and 800 mm
Length: 450 mm
Weight: From 75 Kg

Empire & Metropolitan

Massive crystal hand-cut glass full
of natural daylight

Fresh sunlight brought through the sun tunnel enters the upper part of the column of massive crystal glass and flows through its body. The load-bearing construction of the column is steel. Massive crystal components are stacked horizontally. In the lower part, the light column is equipped with modern light source ceramic LED core chips, imparting a flow of light from the lower section in an upward direction.

Height: From 2.5 m to 8 m
Diameters: 600 mm and 800 mm
Weight: From 1,200 Kg

Piccadily

Massive crystal hand-cut glass emits
real, natural daylight.

The sunlight the sun tunnel brings into the building flows through the glass crystal column. Massive crystal glass has the ability
to lead light along its entire length. For a highlighted effect, the lower part of the column is equipped with cutting-edge ceramic LED core chips, giving off an expressive glow against the sunlight flowing through the upper part of the column. Suitable for open spaces or as an extraordinarily remarkable installation in a smaller closed space.

Height: From 2.5 m to 8 m
For diameters of 600 mm and 800 mm
Weight: From 1,100 Kg

So, beside the crystal dome, whats the difference of the Lighway system?

Blue Performance technology prevents the water condensation inside the reflective tube, so there is no
water leaks in anyway, especially at the ceilings. It also prevents the heat losses during winter time, when
the building is heated. On the other hand, it also balances the temperature during hot days, so the room is
not overheated either.

Can you think of a room where some additional sunlight
would really brighten it up?
