Flushglaze Fixed Multipart Skylight

The beauty of the Flushglaze system is its flexibility, meaning it can be used in a variety of applications - from residential, to commercial buildings.

If you are working to a span up to 40", then a simple silicone seal is the only requirement to secure the panels together. This is a great solution if you are looking to maintain the ‘frameless' internal appearance of your skylight. Large areas of glazing can be linked together using a variety of different methods.

For larger spans you will need something stronger to safely support the joint between the glazed panels. The Flushglaze modular system can also be specified with back to back aluminum ‘T' angles for structural support. This option tends to fit in very well with modern interiors, particularly when paired with folding or sliding door systems, the internal angles can be powder coated to any RAL color of your choice.

If you're looking to maintain an all glass finish, the Flushglaze modular system can be specified using glass fins as structural support instead of aluminum angles. These are a real architectural feature and offer a slightly more elegant finish. The fins are heat soak tested, tempered laminated, for maximum strength and are supported at each end by stainless steel brackets.

Flushglaze Wall Abutted Skylight

The Flushglaze wall abutted skylight is a minimalist fixed skylight, with ‘frameless' internal views designed to be structurally fixed to a wall or building on up to three sides.

The wall abutment detail is part of the Flushglaze framework and should be secured using suitable fixings, dependent on the structure being used. The skylight should always be pitched away from the abutment detail to minimise the chance of water ingress. Once installed, the wall abutment frame should be flashed over to fully weather proof it.

This detail is available on a number of Flushglaze products including solo and multi-part units, as well as walk on Flushglaze units. It is not currently available on Fire Rated Flushglaz skylights.

Flushglaze Eaves Skylight

The eaves system takes the Flushglaze concept one step further by allowing vertically glazed sections to be connected to overhead glazing. In most cases a silicone seal is all that's needed to bond these sections together.

This system is designed to be installed within the eaves of your building using our standard Flushglaze wall abutment detail to securely fix it to the wall. Internally, the eaves Flushglaze unit provides the same frameless views as our flat roof mounted unit, resulting in a seamless transition between inside and outside.

Glazing Vision have collaborated with architects, pushing the boundaries of how this product can be used in both residential and commercial applications.

Ridgeglaze Fixed Skylight

Our Flushglaze skylight range is not just limited to flat roofs single pitch roofs. Glazing Vision have developed a ‘ridgeglaze' system that is designed to be installed over the apex of your roof increasing daylight and sky only views on either side.

The Ridgeglaze is a variant of our Flushglaze system, which means it features the same low profile design, frameless internal views and externals with no capping which reduces dirt build up.

This means the Ridgeglaze skylight has all the same qualities you get from our usual flat fixed skylight design: no visible internal framework; low emissivity heat soak tested glass as standard with the option of triple glazing; custom-built to the size and pitch of the roof you want to transform with natural light.

The Ridgeglaze is designed to be installed incorporating a standard pitch ranging from 10° to 50°. For pitches outside of this range, or for larger scale units, Glazing Vision can design and manufacture a custom product specifically tailored to fit your building. We have even manufactured retractable sliding versions of the Ridgeglaze allowing the whole skylight to be opened up.

Sliding Over Fixed Skylight

If space on the roof is tight the Glazing Vision ‘sliding over fixed' skylight could be the best option. This skylight is usually split into two sections, with one sliding pane of glass moving over a fixed section. This configuration allows the maximum amount of light to be transmitted whilst opening up 50% of the overall footprint for ventilation.

Power is transmitted through a twin drive rack and pinion system with large diameter carriage wheels and hard anodized tracks to provide smooth travel when in motion. The Sliding Over Fixed features a one way solenoid clutch and built in anti lifting mechanism so the sliding section cannot be forcibly back driven.

Sliding Over Roof Skylight

For larger areas with sufficient unobstructed roof space for the sliding section you should consider a ‘sliding over roof' skylight.

With this skylight, the glazed section slides as a single leaf and is supported by tracks on the roof itself in the open position. These form part of the framework and allow more scope in size and specification whilst maintaining the 100% clear opening.

The Sliding Over Roof includes all of the main security features of the Sliding Over Fixed and is operated using the same rack and pinion drive mechanism with one way clutch system.

All sliding skylights can be supplied with remote control and connected to a rain sensor, thermostat and home automation system.

Flat sliding skylights can only be used for access if suitable balustrades are installed, Glazing Vision strongly recommends seeking guidance from building control before commencing works on site.

Freestanding Box Skylight

The Skybox unit is the perfect solution if you're looking for easy access to your roof deck. Operated at the touch of a button, the user simply climbs the stairs whilst the Skybox is retracting into its open position and then walks straight out onto the deck.

The specification of glazing used and physical structure of the design means that there is no additional requirement for balustrades around the skylight.

The Skybox can be manufactured in a variety of configurations but will generally consist of one sliding section of glass moving over a fixed section.

We manufacture two standard configurations, a freestanding box which features glazing on all sides and a three wall box which is designed to be shrouded by the walls of the building itself on three sides.

Three Wall Box Skylight

Our three wall Skybox configuration is one of the most popular and can offer an almost seamless integration into the fabric of your building. It operates in the same way as our freestanding box skylight, but instead of being completely glazed on all sides, the three wall version is fixed to your existing building structure at the back and either end.

Other than having less glass, in all other aspects the three wall box skylight offers the same functionality as the freestanding version. Our latest generation of box skylights are all available with high performance glazing and thermally broken framework so you can be assured that the thermal performance of this unit is unrivaled in its class.

We have manufactured and installed countless numbers of these units, predominantly in urban city environments where space is limited and home owners turn to maximizing their roof space.
