Fully Assembled and Shipped Knocked Down Skylights:

A factory pre-assembled, knocked down unit is the standard assembly method for most of the skylights produced by Solar Innovations, Inc.  This means a skylight is assembled in our manufacturing facility and fully erected before shipping. The skylight is then knocked down (disassembled) for shipment; much like a giant erectors set. The benefit to the end user is that all parts are verified to be the right size, the cutting of extrusions in the field will be eliminated, and the correct screws are present at the correct count.

Sizes: There are no size limitations for this method

Pre assembled Skylights

Factory Pre-assembled Skylights:

A factory pre-assembled skylight means the unit leaves Solar Innovations, Inc.’s facility pre-assembled but not pre-glazed. When choosing this option, typically a crane or special lifting device will be required for installation. The unit will be modular (or fully assembled) without glazing upon arrival to the jobsite.

Maximum Sizes: 8’ x 16’ due to crating and common carrier sizes.

Modular pre-assembled skylights without glazing can reach 8’ x 16’ increments and be as large as 48’ without Solar Innovations, Inc.’s engineering approval.  Over-sized units are available upon request and with Solar’s written approval based on shipping installation, safety, and performance limitations.

Configurations: All shapes with welded curbs are suitable for pre-assembled assembly.

Factory Pre-assembled & Pre-glazed Skylights:

A pre-assembled and pre-glazed skylight means the unit will ship with a frame fully assembled and the glazing already set in the frame.  Each unit is factory sealed which provides minimal field installation and eliminates field error in sealing metal to glazing.  This assembly option is great for installation areas with limited crane access, such as roofs with steep pitches or job sites where the skylight is close to an edge, areas where there is not ample space for a safe installation. If freight and logistics are properly planned, factory pre-glazed units will typically result in lower overall supply and installation costs.

Sizes:  Up to 8’ x 8’ standard with glass or 8’ x 14’ with polycarbonate glazing.
