Series 350, 500, 700, 850 and 1050
Series 350, 500, 700, 850 and 1050 are essentially the same skylight systems with interchangeable rafter sections. The rafters are 3-½” on the 350, 5” on the 500, and 7” on the 700. The rafters on the 850 are 8-½” and on the 1050 10-½.”
The interchangeable rafters allow for efficient use of frames for increasingly longer spans. The various mullions, perimeters, headers, etc, are used as appropriate in each condition.
Our engineers will assist in selecting the correct rafter and spacing for the job, taking into consideration such variables as loading and codes for the specifications and job site locations.
We have, on numerous occasions, bent the 350 rafter for glazing with bent glass. The photos above demonstrate a pair of 10′ wide x 225′ long barrel vault skylights installed in the new Orlando Airport, North Terminal Expansion. They are aluminum framed skylights using our Series 350 frame which was custom bent for this job. The finish is clear anodized and the custom bent glass is clear 9/16″ Lami with a ceramic frit pattern furnished by Dlubak Corp. Custom Skylight Photos courtesy of PCL Construction.
