Single Unit Skylight – Details

The single unit skylight adds the luminosity of daylight in small proportions.

In today’s “GREEN” world, energy efficient skylights are quickly becoming a standard building component with most commercial projects.  Our Galaxy Unit Skylight has been designed for thermal efficiency and fast installation. The frame is thermally broken to reduce the transfer of heat and cold; and since it is pre-glazed it can install in minutes not hours.

Glazing Considerations:

We recommend our standard SilverCoat E-366 insulated glass.  The SilverCoat E-366 is the most cost effective hi-performance glass we offer.  While there are virtually endless glass options available,  we have found that SilverCoat E-366 is a good choice for most applications. It has high energy performance ratings and a full 20 year warranty.  Our standard make up is ¼” clear fully tempered glass over 1/4“ clear HS laminated with a .060 inter-layer.
