A Ridge Skylight is an excellent way to allow a significant amount of light into the structure, much more than a comparably sized window. Ridge skylights can be glazed to help shield against UV radiation and increase heat retention.
Standard ridge mounted skylights can be installed over the "ridge" of the house making them perfect for large gathering or atrium type rooms.
Gable and Hip end ridges are perfect for roofs with little or no slope since they are designed to shed water rather than rely on the pitch of the roof.
All of these units can be supplied in either Structural or Applied configurations depending on the existing conditions and size of the unit.
