One of the first mirror shafts was installed in a single-family house in Abtwil more than 20 years ago. Peter Artho has been using the basement room as a music room ever since and is still convinced and enthusiastic about the effect of the mirror shaft today. But take a look at our new Video about it right now.
Peter Artho is convinced: "the added value is priceless".
Like many EFH owners, Peter Artho wanted to use an existing basement room as a hobby room, in his case for his passion music. In search of a solution for more daylight in the basement, Mr. Artho came across the mirror shaft from Heliobus. After installation, the basement room is unrecognizable: "Beautifully bright," and Peter Artho especially appreciates that when the sun is shining outside and he is practicing in the basement, he gets to see this "one on one."
After with mirror shaft: Beautifully bright
The mirror shaft floods the basement room with daylight. Note that there is no electric light burning in the picture. Only diffuse daylight and sunlight illuminates the room.
Before: the basement light well brings some light, but without electric light the room is not usable.
Satisfied for over 20 years
Peter Artho is still convinced of the mirror shaft and would "make this investment again immediately. He regularly practices trombone in the music room and appreciates the added value that the mirror shaft brings him: daylight, well-being and, above all, the connection to the outdoors.
Depending on the position of the sun, light reflections are distributed in the room, spreading a pleasant atmosphere. But it is also bright without direct sunlight, for example, when it rains or in cloudy weather.
