Easy Access

The Glazing Vision Skydoor is a sleek, low-profile hinged opening skylight that embodies our minimise framework, maximise daylight principle.

Complete open in less than a minute

With just a press of a button you have comfortable, easy access to the terrace or roof space in less than a minute. It’s quiet too: intelligent actuators ensure synchronized operation between the two supporting mechanisms, so the Skydoor opens to a maximum 87 degrees in one fluid, trouble-free motion.

Your choice: access or ventilation

If you just want a flow of fresh air for ventilation, you can hold the open/close button down until you reach the angle you’re after, or touch once and press again when you want the window to stop. Simple.

Precision engineering

What’s not so simple is the engineering know-how that’s gone into the rooflight design. We’ve included an overload cut-off, thermally broken frame, dual-colour powder coated finish and a built-in proximity detector for user safety. All control electronics, mechanisms and power supply are completely hidden within the framework. Clean lines and clear views in and out.

Inspiration

Innovative design is often the result of inspiring architecture. Being able to see how installing glass rooflights can dramatically affect the dynamics of a space is what keeps us inspired. Our rooflights feature some amazing technology and elegant design ideas but ultimately we all know what really matters is how these products improve your space.

Beautiful light loft

Amazing old school conversion to a beautiful light loft. In the Blankenstraat in Amsterdam the former public primary school transformed into loft apartments and offices. The large windows and high ceiling bring a feeling of space and light. For even more space the owners made the rooftop accessible and created a wonderful rooftop garden with nice views over Amsterdam. They used an enormous sleek, low-profile hinged opening skylight for easy access to the rooftop of this Amsterdam loft.
