Glazing Vision

Sliding Over Fixed Skylight

If space on the roof is tight the Glazing Vision ‘sliding over fixed’ skylight could be the best option. This skylight is usually split into two sections, with one sliding pane of glass moving over a fixed section. This configuration allows the maximum amount of light to be transmitted whilst opening up 50% of the overall footprint for ventilation.

Power is transmitted through a twin drive rack and pinion system with large diameter carriage wheels and hard anodized tracks to provide smooth travel when in motion. The Sliding Over Fixed features a one way solenoid clutch and built in anti lifting mechanism so the sliding section cannot be forcibly back driven.

Our Qualicoat approved polyester powder coated frame is supplied dual color as standard and is thermally broken using polyamide thermal breaks and closed cell PIR insulation. Improved thermal performance can be achieved by specifying triple glazing which is now a standard option with the latest frame design.

Flat sliding skylights can only be used for access if suitable balustrades are installed, Glazing Vision strongly recommends seeking guidance from building control before commencing works on site.
