DESIGN & MANUFACTURING

 

Design and selection of skylight systems requires engineering knowledge and experience from all parties involved in the project. Properly designed skylights not only give a unique and beautiful appearance but also provide positive energy saving results and in many cases can even dramatically increase property value. Our engineering staff has over 25 years of experience in the skylight business and can always assist you on this subject.

 

AD Skylights Inc. not only manufactures a wide variety of standard sizes and models but also takes pride in being able to provide our customers with solutions to all their custom skylight needs.

 

 

 

GLAZING OPTIONS

 

Glazing is available in acrylic plastic that is either clear colorless, solar bronze #2412, or white translucent #2447 in domed, flat, or formed pyramid configurations. Alternately, insulating laminated flat glass (with available low “E” emissivity coating and argon filling) is available as a substitute for acrylic. Different shades of bronze, white and gray are also available on special request. You may also view the full page version of the photo below on the “Literature Download” page.

REPLACEMENT DOMES

 

Custom sizes of domes, pyramids and polygons made out of a single piece of plastic are available as replacement glazing to be installed in existing skylight framing. To order please indicate required dimensions, quantities, and colors of domes. Clear colorless, solar bronze #2412, or white translucent #2447 are considered standard colors. For ordering replacement domes or pyramids use the full page version of the template below on the “Literature Download” page (provided in PDF format.)

STANDARD MODELS

 

 

Skylight framing is available in thermally broken or standard systems.  Both systems are equipped with integral condensation gutters and have the ability to support all types of glazing and loading requirements. Either system can be specified for all our curb mounted or self-flashing units. All our plastic skylights are fabricated with single, double, or triple domes made out of high quality acrylic.
