Multi-Lite Ridge Skylight
These types of skylights are applicable to conditions where the skylight continues in the same plane as the roof pitch and the ridge of the skylight follows the line of the ridge of the roof. They can also be mounted on curbs on flat roofs with a variety of skylight pitch options and glazed vertical ends. Both types of skylights can also be attached to adjacent vertical walls at either or both ends. Skylight pitch is generally determined by other architectural conditions or aesthetic requirements.
Curb size is determined by size and structural requirements and while shallow pitched ridges under 4" in 12" can be mounted on curbs perpendicular to the roof, a steeper pitch usually requires that the curb be plumb to the ground and the top of the curb be in the same plane as the slope of the roof and skylight (see drawing - perpendicular curb or plumb curb.) Ridge skylights with vertical ends require flashed and roofed flat curbs. To view standard details click here to see Ridge drawings.Architectural Skylight Specifications
Standard glass make-up is with insulated glass to limit heat loss and performance tinted or low-e glass products to control heat gain where required. Translucent or pattern glass is available if more diffused lighting is desired. All glass units are provided with code compliant exterior panels of tempered safety glass and interior panes of laminated safety glass. This combination also provides the maximum protection from ultraviolet light.
