Skylights are an ideal option when electricity is either not available or cost-prohibitive to get to the shelter.
They provide ample light within the shelter during daylight hours - allowing people to service equipment while limiting passers-by to see inside the shelter.
Multiple skylights can be added to a shelter and placed anywhere in the roof.
How do we create leak-proof skylights? First, a Shelter Works skylight is not a skylight that is purchased and then cut in and installed in the roof. It’s actually formed into the roof during the molding process to provide a seamless finish with no joints, fasteners, seams or cracks.
During the forming process, we simply replace the foam insulation in the roof/ceiling with a translucent material that will let the light in.
Because it is one solid piece, it's guaranteed to never leak.
