Aluminum Structures

Greenhouses

From an 8’ x 10’ hobby greenhouse to a sprawling, fully-automated commercial arboretum, Solar Innovations® is the one-stop shop for any residential or commercial growing need. Custom-designed to the customer’s specifications, these glazed structures can be configured with unlimited styles, colors and infills. Being a single-source manufacturer, all doors and operable windows are manufactured by Solar Innovations® and perfectly match the aesthetics of the structure. Solar Innovations® will also assist in planning and equipping the greenhouse with all of the accessories needed to make for a thriving growing environment. Learn more

Conservatories

A conservatory is typically a glazed structure attached to a home to provide a climate-controlled sunlit living space for both people and plants. However, they can also be used as a freestanding structure or commercial building. The traditional, or Victorian, style of a conservatory is often adorned with finials, ridge cresting, decorative gutters, gridded windows and ornamental caps, but is not limited to this ornate style. They can also take on a contemporary appearance with large spans of glass, clean lines and modern finishes. Either way, these quality-constructed structures make for a welcoming space for any home or business. Learn more

Sunrooms

Usually thought as a smaller cousin to the conservatory, these structures are often attached to a home or business and configured in a lean-to manner. Using the same high-quality materials as Solar Innovations® greenhouses and conservatories, sunrooms can be anchored to the foundation or mounted on a knee wall. To allow for natural air flow, operable windows, eave and ridge vents can be integrated into the design. Sunshine rooms are the perfect solution for a breakfast nook or sunlit space to allow houseplants to flourish. Many of Solar Innovations® doors and operable window products can also be incorporated into the design. Learn more

Glass Canopies

A glazed canopy is the perfect solution for protecting those underneath from rain, while allowing daylight to permeate. Often used to protect entryways, glazed awnings can support a wide range of glazing types: from curved glass to incredibly strong polycarbonate. Available for residential and commercial applications, glazed canopies can also be freestanding, allowing for a space to congregate while be protected from the elements. A canopy generally does not have side walls, doors or operable windows. Learn more

Pool & Spa Enclosures

A pool enclosure allows for year-round enjoyment of a swimming pool or spa in a climate-controlled environment. The use of glass floods the pool area with an abundance of sunshine — even in the coldest of months. With any enclosed pool area, humidity can present a problem. Incorporating ridge vents allows moisture to escape while reducing condensation. For a fully automatic ventilation system, thermostats and humidistats can command vents to open and close, making for a perfect climate within the pool housing. Learn more

Pool Houses

Pool houses vary significantly from pool enclosures as they simply do not have a pool inside them. These traditionally-constructed buildings, positioned by an outdoor pool, make for a nice entertainment space, dressing area or kitchenette. Incorporating a large bifold door or sliding glass door into the structure creates a seamless transition between the indoors and outdoors. To further blur the line between the indoors and outdoors, skylights can be placed into the roof to brighten the cabana. Learn more

Walkways

A glazed walkway is typically utilized as a covered, climate-controlled passageway between two commercial or institutional buildings. However, they are not limited to businesses. Glazed walkways are an ideal solution to connect a detached garage or outbuilding to a home or other glazed structure. The passageway is enclosed on the roof and side walls with aluminum-framed glass and can be constructed on a knee wall. Flat or curved glass can be used, with a wide variety of Low-E coatings available. Learn more

Glass Railings

Decorative glass railings add a contemporary design aesthetic to stairways, balconies, and other areas that need to be protected by a railing. They not only allow for unobstructed views, but also provide a safety barrier from elevated places with falling hazards. They utilize a dry-glazed mounting shoe for the railing itself, that delivers excellent performance and simpler installation. The monolithic glass used in this system is tempered with polished edges and can be capped with an aluminum rail. To create a more seamless look, and where building codes allow, the unit can be built without railing hardware, making the glass itself the hand-hold point. Frosted or etched glass can be used as well. Learn more
