35 Years of Experience in Canadian Made Sky-Lights
Developed after 35 years of skylight manufacturing experience, the Sky-Tech Thermal unit from Sky-Tech Sky-Lights in Edmonton is a true thermally broken skylight. Equipped with a RIGID ALUMINUM FRAME, that assures a positive LEAK FREE installation with protection against condensation even under unusual moisture conditions.
Efficiency & Renewable Energy by Sky-Tech Sky-Lights
A skylight can provide your home or business with day-lighting and warmth. When properly selected and installed, an energy-efficient skylight can help minimize your heating, cooling, and lighting costs. Want to learn more? Follow Sky-Tech Sky-Lights on Facebook.
Sky-Tech Sky-Light Installations
Sky-Tech curb mounted Skylights are the most commonly used skylight model as they can be installed on to virtually any type of roof. They incorporate a thermally broken aluminum base frame, which is an important feature in colder climates. This thermal break consists of a core of structural, resin material, which divides the warm inner portion and the cold outer portion of the aluminum frame, thereby increasing thermal efficiency. Our elevated domed shape helps to shed snow during Canadian winter months.
Sky-Tech curb mounted skylights are designed to fit onto a curb constructed on top of the roof. The construction of these curbs may be modified to suit various roof types. Typically the curb consists of wood or metal structure, rigid insulation, roof membrane and/or flashings, a vapour barrier, and interior finishing material. At Sky-Tech, we know what builders and home owners are looking for in a skylight. Top quality, innovative technology that is Canadian Climate Engineered, trouble-free installation, reliable long-life performance and competitive prices.
Canadian Aluminum Construction
Sky-Tech Sky-Lights frames are fabricated from 3″ – 6063-T5 extruded aluminum alloy. In addition to this, our 3″ base frame components incorporate which thermally divides the warm inner portion of the aluminum frame, and the cold outer portion, providing an increased thermal efficiency. All skylights have 1″ interior condensation gutter and a full 3/4″ round inserted closed cell curb air seal gasket. The corner joints on all of our skylights have a continuous heliarc weld for protection against leakage.
It’s All In The Glazing
Sky-Tech Sky-Lights uses only high quality acrylic or polycarbonate glazing. Acrylic glazing materials are thermally formed and are an excellent choice for domed skylights. Also Acrylic is less expensive, lighter, and stronger than glass. Acrylic glazing provides better ratings against heat loss than to those of standard uncoated glass. Clear Acrylic is used where maximum amount of direct light is desired and only where glare and solar heat transmission are not important. Tinted glazing reduces glare, brightness and solar heat transmission. Our standard bronze acrylic a signicant reduction in solar heat gain and a significant reduction of light. It is commonly used where privacy in an issue.
Polycarbonate plastic glazing is available and used to improve resistance over standard acrylic and is virtually unbreakable. Polycarbonate is approved by Underwriter’s Laboratory of Canada as the best burglar resistant glazing material. All Sky-Tech double glazed glass skylights are fabricated with tempered outer and laminate inner glass materials. Glass is more resistant to scratching and ultraviolet breakdown, than Acrylic glazing materials.
LEED® stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® It is a certification program focused primarily on new, commercial-building projects and based upon a points system. The more points you earn, the higher your rating. It’s clear that making buildings and homes greener can have a significant impact on larger environmental goals. LEED® is a rating a international mark of excellence for green building in over 160 countries. Since 2002, the Canada Green Building Council® and LEED® Canada have been redefining communities where Canadians live, work and learn. Greening your enviroment create a healthier indoor environment for occupants through better indoor air quality, less harmful products, and more natural daylight.
