Welded Curb Skylights
Welded Curb Skylights are uniquely designed to eliminate water penetration. These units are attached through the side of the curb, not the top, as is typical of many other industry skylights. By attaching at the sides, the chance of long term water penetration through the sill pan is minimized.
Every Welded Curb Skylight base is constructed of durable aluminum, which will endure exposure to the elements for years to come. Solar Innovations® can provide an ornate wood interior if desired. Various metal cladding options are available as well. All skylights can be customized to virtually any size, shape, and specific design requirement, such as snow, wind, water, and even hurricanes. Any industry glazing can be utilized in your skylight, including high performance glass and polycarbonate. Shading options are also available to reduce heat gain and adjust lighting as desired.
Each Solar Innovations system is custom made to order based on your project and your personal preferences with our expert engineers.

Convenience & Performance
Most curb mount skylights are available pre-assembled, while others are pre-assembled and pre-glazed. A pyramid skylight that is less than 8’0” x 8’0” and double pitches and hips that are less than 8’0” x 12’0,” can be pre-assembled and pre-glazed. Pre-assembled skylights are prefabricated with welded and sealed corners and joints. A skylight that is not pre-assembled will require field-assembly using silicone or other sealants, which have a slightly higher potential of water penetration as a result of installation error or a building that shifts with time. Be sure to select and speak with a skylight installation expert to minimize leaks and maintenance over time.
Factory assembled skylights are fabricated in a controlled environment when compared to the variations of field assembly. The seals on a skylight installed in the field can be compromised by job-site dust and debris. Each Solar Innovations® skylight is constructed in a clean environment, which eliminates any foreign matter, such as dirt, dust, or moisture from entering the skylight and damaging the unit during assembly. Purchasing a factory assembled skylight will ensure the best seals possible and the most durable, long-lasting product.
Quick & Simple Installation
If there is access to a crane or the man power needed to bring the skylight to the roof, a pre-assembled skylight is the ideal unit. Utilizing a pre-assembled curb mount skylight will minimize the labor needed for installation. Time will be saved on the assembly of the unit, and it is much more cost effective than executing all the assembly on-site. Safety is always a concern when people are on a roof; however, a pre-assembled skylight reduces the amount of time the crew will spend on the roof. The risks are minimized with pre-assembled curb mount skylights.
Solar Innovations® offers Welded Curb Skylights in virtually any size and can accommodate a wide range of configurations, including single slope, pyramids, segmented radius domes, hip end, and more. These skylight systems can attach to virtually any substrate and are suited for both residential and commercial applications without size or design limitations. Skylights have several unique delivery options including Pre-Assembled Pre-Glazed, Pre-Assembled Not Pre-Glazed, and Knocked Down.
