Since 1998, Solar Innovations has grown to become a leader in the architectural glazing industry, providing innovative solutions to customers all over the world. With over 25,000 projects completed, our 360,000+ square foot Pine Grove, PA LEED Gold-designed manufacturing facility produces the most complete product line in the industry. With this capability, we provide a cohesive look across the entirety of a project's glazing needs. Our door, window, skylight and structure systems have been recognized to be among the highest in quality and performance for both the commercial and residential markets. As a single-source manufacturer of aluminum, wood and vinyl products, we tailor our systems to meet the project's specific needs. To further stand out, our custom hardware is machined in-house, delivering a level of craftsmanship to our products that is unmatched in the industry. Also, most of our engineering and product testing is done in our state-of-the-art testing facility, providing our customers with exacting standards and specifications.
Solar Innovations®' bifold, slide and stack, sliding, and lift-slide door systems allow our customers to open wide spans to the outdoors, while providing excellent air and water performance, ADA compliance, impact certification, and thermally-broken systems to lower energy consumption. Our casement, awning, hopper, pivot and tilt-turn windows, as well as our aluminum and wood curtain walls, meet the same standards as our door systems and allow for excellent daylighting and fresh air, which brings health benefits to the building's inhabitants, reduces heating costs and adds functionality to the space. For more daylight and fresh air, our retractable and operable skylights allow for motorized or manually-operated ventilation. Our pyramid, polygonal, barrel-vault and dome skylights make a bold architectural statement while our walkable skylights allow for more useable space to roofs with foot traffic. Additionally, our greenhouses, conservatories, sunrooms, pool enclosures, and walkways allow our customers to surround themselves with the beauty of the outdoors year-round, all in a climate-controlled environment for both plants and people.
While we already offer the most comprehensive product line in the architectural glazing industry, we continuously partner with customers to stretch the limits of architectural possibilities. This expands our product offerings and fuels our company's growth. When other manufacturers say no, Solar Innovations® says yes.

Once in place, the skylight only needs to be fastened to the structure to complete the installation. This option provides the ultimate manufacturing control and the greatest ease of installation. Pre-assembled/pre-glazed skylights up to 4 x 8 ft (1219 x 2438 mm) flat (nonwalkable) and up to 8 x 8 ft (2438 x 2438 mm) geometric shapes also require engineering approval. Pre-assembled/not pre-glazed skylights feature welded curbs and a pre-assembled frame which can be lifted or hoisted into place for factory assembled, water tight, and secure curb details. Installation is reduced to installing only glass, exterior caps, fasteners, and finishing the exterior seals. Pre-assembled/not pre-glazed skylights require less expertise and time to install than the knocked down models offered. Pre-assembled/not pre-glazed flat and geometric shaped skylights up to 8 x 8 ft (2438 x 2438 mm) require engineering pre-approval.
