A versatile product, Suntile is a clear tile that replaces one of your existing roof tiles to allow daylight into your attic, loft conversion and loft void. This natural light can also be channelled to a room or space below a roof void, such as bathrooms, en-suites, stairwells, landings, corridors, garages, workshops and stables. No planning permission is needed and they can be easily and quickly installed.
Suntiles will not only save you money on your electricity bill, but are environmentally friendly reducing the need for electric lighting. Studies have also shown that natural light improves your well being providing health benefits too.
In addition, our loft void kits are useful for deterring unwanted pests like rats and squirrels and provide a long term and more humane solution than calling out Pest Control!

"Our Suntiles have done more than light up our dark landing. Our children now have a new playspace and our moods, as well as our house, have definitely brightened!"
