Other Skylights

Various types of large skylights are available. These skylight types are installed for their aesthetical appeal to cover openings between two areas, or to allow natural light entry through a roof or concrete slab, with the benefit of having an outward view through the covered area. Many different materials are used, with the most common being aluminium for the frames, glass, polycarbonate or perspex for the covering. Technology has come a long way and today almost any type of skylight can be constucted to cover any area. Smaller skylights come in standard sizes (as per our tables below), but can also be custom made to specification and architectual requirement. The larger skylights are normally engineer designed and manufactured. All our products come with a guarantee. There is normally a 2 to 4 week manufacturing lead time for non standard items. Standard sizes are in increments of 300mm.

The following options are available on all our large skylights:

- Aluminium corner welded frames to prevent leakage. Various colour options are available
- Flashing for the various roof types where required. (Colourcoded to suite roof colour)
- Covering in glazing, polycarbonate or perspex. (it is important to take note of the type of area you intend to cover)
- Glazing to suite climate conditions and limit UV entry
