A 90 degree operable skylight lifts the glazed unit or “lid” 90 degrees from the plane of the curb.  This type of skylight has different applications and specific functions, one being ventilation.  A typical ridge vent or standard operable skylight only opens a few degrees, allowing small amounts of ventilation.  The 90 degree unit fully opens, allowing optimum amounts of ventilation into a space.  Daylight is a desired effect of all skylights, and the 90 degree series allows ample levels of daylight.

At times, large equipment may need to be moved into a room, but the building doors may not be large enough. 90 degree skylights provide an unobstructed opening, allowing equipment to pass into the interior of the building. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s 90 degree operable skylight can also be used for roof access.  Depending on the building’s design, reaching the roof may be challenging, a 90 degree skylight creates an easy exit to any building’s roof. This type of skylight also provides unobstructed views of the night sky for those who enjoy star gazing.

All 90 degree operable skylights built by Solar Innovations, Inc. are constructed out of low maintenance aluminum framework that will not rot, rust, warp, or require yearly finish work. Aluminum is an ideal material to withstand years of exposure to the elements. Virtually any type of glazing can be incorporated into the framing system, including laminated glass and LowE tints.
