Skylight Systems

Skylight Systems

Fixed

We offer fixed skylights in virtually any size and can accommodate a wide range of configurations, including single slope, pyramids, segmented radius domes, barrel vault, hip end, glass roofs, roof lanterns, and more. Our skylight systems can attach to virtually any substrate and are suited for both residential and commercial applications without size or design limitations.

Operable

Operable Skylights provide the benefits of increased natural light and ventilation. With a variety of operation possibilities, including Venting, Retractable, and 90° Operable, the design possibilities are endless; each skylight is designed and built completely custom to fit your project.

90° Operable

A 90° Operable Skylight lifts the glazed unit, or “lid,” 90° from the plane of the curb. This type of skylight offers several applications and functions, the main being ventilation. A typical ridge vent or standard operable skylight only opens a few degrees, while the 90° Operable Skylight fully opens, allowing for optimum amounts of ventilation.

Retractable

Solar Innovations® Retractable Skylights are a superior thermally enhanced system, limiting environmental temperature transfers, and are able to utilize high performance insulated glass to control air and moisture effectively, allowing them to be used in pool enclosures and other high-moisture environments.

Curb Mount

Curb mount skylights are uniquely designed to eliminate water penetration, by attaching through the side of the curb rather than the top as is typical of many other industry skylights. This design minimizes the chances of long term water penetration through the sill pan.

Walkable

Walkable skylights provide the same natural daylighting solutions as traditional skylights while serving double duty as a walkable surface. While walkable skylights can be used for exterior applications, a covered area is recommended; walkable skylights may be placed on the floor below an existing skylight to bring daylight deeper into a building.

Roof Lanterns

Solar Innovations® provides the finest aluminum roof lanterns available in the industry today. Initially popular in the Victorian, Edwardian, and Georgian eras, roof lanterns can add an exciting feature to any location. Roof lanterns are a daylighting architectural element that are located atop a roof to provide a natural lighting element to the space below.

Venting

Venting skylights are used to bring fresh air and circulation into a room and operate with the use of a continuous hinge, similar to a ridge vent’s function. A venting skylight has a higher profile than that of a ridge vent and offers better air and water performance along with a higher thermal value.

Wood Fixed

Wood skylights pair the beauty of classic wood interiors with the durability and dependability of aluminum exteriors. Moldings and trims on the interior can be formed to match existing architectural elements on your house. Thermal efficiency tends to be higher with a wooden skylight because wood allows for lower U-values.
