Removable skylights allow for large machinery placement and exchanges long after the construction process is complete.
“We’re excited about these removable skylights because they make it easy for businesses to swap out any equipment”
In addition to providing a glare-free light source for workers, these skylights offer an easy way to add, remove or exchange large equipment like MRI machines in hospitals.
Water treatment plants also find the large, removable skylights to be a beneficial addition. Ranging in spans from a few feet to 20’ or more, the skylights are constructed of durable stainless steel. When access is needed, the skylight is lifted off by crane using the lifting hooks included as part of the framework.
Crystal Structures offers a range of “lift-off” styles including the popular pyramid, ridgelights, hipped ridgelights and custom configurations. These can be made with glass but are frequently constructed with polycarbonate to allow daylight while being lighter than a glass skylight.
“We’re excited about these removable skylights because they make it easy for businesses to swap out any equipment,” said Craig Andersen, National Sales Director, “ As a business grows, it’s likely that a building addition restricts previously available access, installing a removable skylight on the roof is the solution.”
