ROOF SKYLIGHTS

Roof skylights are divided into:

  • arch
  • saddle
  • shed
  • spot
  • reconstruction of old skylights

CIPI, s.r.o. manufactures and delivers roof skylights onto the market, enabling the daylight to penetrate into the buildings. Openable parts may be installed into the skylights for daily ventilation (i.e. ventlights), venting the rooms underneath

The skylights are fixed on roof cladding by means of skylight basements of various heights above the level of the roof cladding. Heat insulation is inserted into the basements, and everything is enclosed by hydro insulation strips or plumbing elements ensuring water-tightness.

We offer various versions:

  • Skylights with clear width from 1.2 to 6 m x length (unlimited)
  • Skylights with dimensioned for snow load (SL) ranging from 0.5 to 4.0kN/m2 – including structural analysis
  • Skylights with ventlights controlled with electric servo-drive or pneumatic – drive with possibility of connecting to rain-wind central control, self-closing in case of adverse weather
  • Skylights with the possibility of integrating equipment for smoke and heat exhaust in case of fire – skylight modification
  • Skylights with the possibility of mounting of photovoltaic panels

Skylight construction:

Skylight construction is made of certified pressed aluminium profiles designed in the following shades: natural aluminium, anodized aluminium, colour shade within RAL shade range

Glazing material consists of polycarbonate sheets with a thickness ranging from 10 mm to 25 mm with heat transfer coeficient Ug from 3,0 Wm2K to Ug = 1,39Wm2K, in various shades: opal, clear, bronze,  etc. These glazing thicknesses are applicable to arched skylights; for shed

and saddle skylights, the thickness of glazing is unlimited and a high-quality polycarbonate glazing system by means of tongue and groove can be used, achieving a heat transfer Ug<1,0 Wm2K. With arched skylights, sandwich glazing of two polycarbonate sheets can be used where the thermal transfer Ug 1,06 Wm2K is achieved.

High quality Polycarbonate plates with IR filter, i.e. Comfort, SolarControl, IQ – infrared radiation filtration and reduction of overheating of room underneath. Daily ventilation is provided by openable parts by pneumatic or electric drives. Besides polycarbonate with IR filter, our company also offers certified plates with increased protection against hail. Hailstorms are accountable annually for hundreds of thousands of damages to skylights; using this type of polycarbonate, we can protect your skylight from this damage and thus increase the safety of your hall and machinery.

Cost saving:

In construction – because of the fact that applied material (polycarbonate, aluminium) are significantly lighter than conventional glazing made of steel and wire-glass or glass and this results in lower roof structure load and therefore roof construction costs are reduced. The combination of aluminium structure and polycarbonate is also less financially demanding than the aluminium and glass combination.

In lighting – after installing a skylight a better light transmittance into room occurs is achieved. Use of “milky shade”, i.e. opal polycarbonate causes the light to diffuse optimally, preventing the dazzling effect, and the overheating of interior by sunlight is reduced.

In maintenance – because skylight supporting structure is made of aluminium sections, the operation is almost maintenance-free. In case of arch skylights with polycarbonate sheets the maintenance is self-cleaning because impurities are washed away by rain.

Guarantee period – Service

Our company has a clearly defined quality mission resulting in our guarantee periods we provide for our customers. We provide guarantee periods for the delivery and installation 5 to 7 years, up to 10 years for polycarbonate glazing for all skylights glazed with polycarbonate sheets.

We want clearly to prove to our customers by this commitment that the investment they entrusted to us has a clear base and lifetime. We provide guarantee services within 48 hours from defect reporting.
