Glass skylights can be used in your home to celebrate the Jewish festival of Sukkot. Often referred to as Sukkah or Succah skylights, these units are designed to be opened manually during the festival without the use of electricity, and are designed specifically to meet the guidelines set out within the Jewish community.
Our range of opening skylights includes either hinged or sliding units, which can be operated at the touch of a button for day to day use. During the festival, the hydraulic mechanism can be isolated from your electricity supply and the skylights opened using a manual pump.
As depicted in The Jerusalem Talmud, a skylight which can be covered in thatching may be a qualified Sukkah – meaning you can celebrate within your home by surrounding your roof opening with sechach.
If you require a Sukkah skylight, please contact our Technical Specification team, who will be able to offer advice and provide examples of our previous projects.
