Solatube International Inc., the worldwide leading manufacturer and marketer of Tubular Daylighting Devices (TDDs), announced its new Solatube Design Calculator 2.0, the commercial industry’s first cloud-based daylighting design analysis tool for advanced daylighting systems. It gives Solatube Certified Commercial Distributors the ability to create in-depth specifications and plans for any commercial daylighting project using Solatube products.
The Solatube Design Calculator 2.0, goes well beyond what other calculation and evaluation tools can do. It instantly handles complex calculations that would normally take hours to do manually. It also delivers the most comprehensive results of any tool, provides multiple ways to view the data and is the first to support LEED Version 4.0. The Design Calculator 2.0 creates the most accurate and detailed daylighting plans, making daylighting design even easier for architects to specify into their projects.
Solatube Distributors certified to use the new Design Calculator 2.0 will be able to:
• Create and store designs in the cloud 24/7 for anytime, anywhere access
• Tap into actual hour-by-hour data for designs based on real weather at the project site
• Customize occupancy schedules to reflect actual building use by hour, day and month
• Run simultaneous design comparisons to save time and get faster results
• Simulate the real-life lighting environment using Point by Point analysis
