In-System Skylights

In-system skylights are the perfect solution if venting is necessary in the roof of a low pitch structure (below 3/12 or 14° roof pitch). In-system skylights serve a purpose similar to that of ridge vents. The skylights feature a higher profile and a low pitch seal to ensure protection against leaking. These skylights can be operated either manually or with a moisture resistant motor. (One motor can operate up to a two-bay skylight. Three-and four-bay skylights will require two synchronized motors.)

In-system skylights are especially helpful for ventilating greenhouses. Without ventilation, a greenhouse is just a glass box where temperatures can reach 100 plus and kill your plants. Hot air always rises and accumulates at the ridge of the greenhouse. Air can become stagnant and will promote the spread of disease and fungus. This air needs to escape to allow your plants to continue growing. The in-system skylight will open and allow the hot air to escape while bringing in new, fresh air. The new air will circulate through the greenhouse and promotes healthy plant growth.

The skylights are constructed out of thermally broken aluminum, which does not rot, rust, warp, or require constant finish maintenance. The models are thermally enhanced to match a structure’s framework. Each skylight is available in seven standard colors and two anodized frame finishes or any required custom color. Insect screens come standard with the skylights to allow air into the greenhouse but prevent unwanted insects from entering. The insect screens can also keep in the good insects you may use for bug control, such as ladybugs or wasps.

 

 

In addition, Solar Innovations’® operable skylights can be retrofitted for existing glass structures or other roof applications.

Our manual pole operators are available in three standard sizes, 65″, 77″, and 97″. Custom sizes are available upon request.
