Vented Skylights

 

Vented skylights are available in various forms. 


The passively vented skylight allows a transfer of air into the room, however if a greater volume of air transfer is required then a mechanically vented skylight is an option.


This is available in two options:

 

  • Larger traditional skylights with the exhaust fan installed on the dome or
  • Smaller skylights where the mechanical ventilation is separate to the skylight.

Mechanically Vented Skylights

  • By combining the exhaust fan in the skylight it removes the need to have a skylight for the light and then a separate exhaust fan at the ceiling.
  • These units are especially suitable for bathrooms, laundries and kitchens.
  • The exhaust fan has a ball bearing motor for continuous running and is a completely weatherproof unit designed especially for skylight domes.
  • At the ceiling there is a glocell diffuser, also known as an eggcrate diffuser. This allows the transfer of air from the room below to the exhaust fan in the skylight.

Standard skylights have a prismatic diffuser at the ceiling. The myriad of prisms are designed to diffuse the light evenly over a wide area

 

Combo Ventilation with Skylight:

 

Ventilated skylights are ideal where ventilation and light is required as a combination. This can apply in bathrooms, ensuites, laundries, kitchens and other rooms.

 

  • In wet rooms they remove moisture and steam keeping them dry
  • In rooms with a stale air environment, they promote fresh air circulation
  • In kitchens they can assist in extracting out cooking smells.
