Go solar and save big!

The Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylight features a solar panel that captures any available daylight and uses it to recharge a highly efficient, fully concealed battery powered operator and control system. The battery powered operator is the power source that opens and closes the skylight. A rain sensor is built in to close the unit in the event that inclement weather arises.

Benefits of a Solar Powered "Fresh Air" Skylight

  • 1
    Solar Powered
    Remote controlled, solar powered skylight requires no wiring, which makes for easy and cost effective installation.
  • 2
    Rain Sensors
    With the integrated rain sensor, the skylight will close automatically if inclement weather approaches.
  • 3
    No Leak Promise
    The No Leak Skylight carries a 10-year installation warranty, plus 20 years on glass, 10 years on product, and 5 years on blinds and controls.
  • 4
    Clean, Quiet & Safe Glass
    Silicon dioxide makes Neat® glass exceptionally smooth. In fact, it's much smoother than ordinary glass so water disperses evenly (sheets off), and evaporates quickly, greatly reducing water spotting. Reduce unwanted outside noise by up to 25% less than a standard double pane glass, and up to 50% less than a plastic skylight.
  • 5
    Fresh Air
    Adding fresh air and ventilation to a home is essential to health and well-being.
