Ciralight manufactures the patented SunTracker™ a lighting solution that enables commercial and industrial buildings to utilize sunlight to illuminate indoor spaces using natural cost-free light. The SunTracker™ unit utilizes a solar powered GPS controller and mirrors to track the sun and direct abundant, even, natural light indoors. The result is a self contained, completely sustainable lighting solution that can offer up to 10.5 hours of free indoor light. Using Sun-tracking technology allows our SunTrackers to illuminate buildings longer and more effectively than traditional skylights. Furthermore, the natural diffused light is high quality, more conducive to retail, educational, and industrial purposes. Studies show that people, sales and productivity thrive in spaces that use natural illumination. SunTrackers™ provide the equivalent illumination of a 1,000 watt metal halide light fixture, but healthier and without the ongoing cost. SunTrackersTM are entirely solar powered so they do not require any electricity or electrical hookup. SunTrackers™ are designed with heat traps so they prevent the heat gain associated with traditional lights and skylights. Ciralight SunTrackers™ are used by LG, Staples, Office Depot, IKEA, Google, Whole Foods, Walgreens, Johnson and Johnson, Caterpillar, Emerson, Frito Lay, Boeing, Eaton, and others.
