Solar Powered Opening Skylight
Welcome to the latest Innovation to 'Skylight' Technology!
Weatherproof Roofing proudly presents the Solar Powered Opening Skylight.
The roof in this video you are watching is in Edmonton and the job was completed in 2017. On this particular project, we Replaced the Asphalt Shingles with Limited Lifetime Architectural Laminate Shingles, in this case, Lifetime refers to 50-year full replacement Warranty. We also replaced the Fascia & Eavestrough as well as the Flashing on the Brick Chimney.
The exciting part of this Roof was the Replacement of One Large Skylight to 2 Skylights, with one being Solar Powered Opening Skylight. We also newly Installed a Sun Tunnel, which now allows a lot of Natural Light into a once dark Bathroom
The existing Skylight was a fixed Skylight, and replacing this with 2 Skylights required a little more work. Weatherproof Roofing Specializes in Skylight Replacement and Installation, thus the work went very smoothly, leaving a Smiling Client.
In order to Install 2 Skylights, we framed and built the roof deck in the existing Skylight opening, installing 2 curbs to mount the Skylights. We Installed a Fixed Curb Mount Skylight on the lower Skylight, and a Solar Powered Opening Skylight on the Upper Opening.
Solar Powered Opening Skylight is an amazing technology as there are many features which give peace of mind, as well as keeping costs low.
1. 99 Open/Closes:
- The battery charges quickly within a few hours. A full charge will last for 99 Open & Closes, giving peace of mind knowing that you can go awhile without seeing the sun and still have a lot of power.
- Since the Skylight is Solar Powered, it charges a battery to open and close. There is no need for wires, and the Installation is as easy as a regular Skylight, which helps to keep costs down. The Wireless Remote Control allows you to set when you would like to Open and Close, so when you come home from work, the Skylight is already open, letting any hot air escape.
- Worried about the rain? With the Rain Sensor you can have peace of mind knowing that if rain should happen while you are out and the Skylight is open, the Rain Sensor will signal the Skylight to close. It does this quite Quickly, as you would ideally want if it suddenly begins to Rain.
