Skylights are made of a (GRP) which is fibreglass without the colouring compound making it transparent, allowing light to penetrate into your working environment. Hence the word skylight or otherwise known as a rooflight.
Industrial skylights and industrial rooflights are a very effective way of lighting your industrial or commercial building without the need of artificial light.
Skylights/rooflights have been around for centuries dating back to ancient roman times and can still be seen in old architecture today. It wasn’t until the industrial revolution when they started to close them off buy using glass to cover the open hole because getting natural light into a building was a very important factor of lighting your premises but
the open holes were causing damage to the buildings and contents. This is where the phrase ‘day lighting’ comes from (a process used to allow direct and/or indirect daylight into a building via top lighting.
Skylights/rooflights are used in modern day building design more than ever today with the constant rise of utilities and as (grp) products advance they last much longer than older materials.
Good quality (grp) today can last up to 30 years on a roof before it shows any signs of breaking down due to the constant attack from the ultraviolet rays caused from the sun.
