If you’re trying to decide on the right skylights for a project, be sure to take some time to consider the benefits of specifying frameless skylights. After all, your choice of skylight will have a big impact on the overall appearance of the residence – both inside and out – as well as the amount of natural light that’s able to fill the space.
Frameless skylights are designed to allow the maximum amount of light into a space. They feature minimal fixings and frames, so all you see when you look up is a clear expanse of glass.
What are the benefits of specifying a frameless skylight?
There are plenty of reasons to opt for a frameless skylight – from aesthetics to saving energy. These include:
- Uninterrupted views – A frameless design means that when a building occupant looks through the skylight, all they see is the beautiful sky above. There’s no frame to block any part of the view, ensuring a much more open and airy feel.
- Boost natural light – Daylight is believed to provide a number of benefits to the health and wellbeing of building residence. Plus, it’s a cost- and carbon-free alternative to electric lights. Opting for a frameless skylight will ensure the maximum amount of sunlight can shine into the room. You can even install several units adjacent to one another, creating a glazed ceiling that vastly increases the natural light.
- Architecturally attractive – A bulky frame can stand out and be a bit of an eye-sore that negatively affects both the interior design and the exterior appearance of the building. With a frameless skylight, however, you can enjoy a much more streamlined appearance and, as mentioned above, several can be installed together, which can create a striking architectural feature.
- Easy installation – Frameless skylights are often much easier to install and don’t need complicated flashing kits that require partial disassembly of the unit prior to install. This means that less tools are needed to complete the installation, it’s quicker and less likely to leak.
