Walk On Skylight with Recessed Application

SkyFloor® thermally broken recessed units are an excellent option when incorporating walk on skylights or glass flooring into your project. SkyFloor® thermally broken recessed units have been designed to be a thermally broken unit. This critical feature is not an afterthought of makeshift solution. Each SkyFloor® thermally broken recessed unit is engineered to withstand up to 100lbs per sq ft live load* along with numerous design features to ensure a beautiful, trouble free finished product.

SkyFloor® thermally broken recessed units are constructed of 6063-T6 aluminum, greatly reducing the overall weight of the completed assembly while still maintaining all of the strength and load bearing capabilities required. This reduced weight provides for easier and quicker installation, saving both time and money.

SkyFloor® thermally broken recessed units utilize our patented framing system which incorporates our snap on setting blocks which work as one with the framing members. Our design virtually eliminates potential installation issues or unsightly finish conditions. SkyFloor® frames are configured with an optional LED lighting channel that allows for a wave of color to flow over the glass. This industry leading option can help transform any room into a dynamic living space.

SkyFloor® thermally broken recessed units come with either a white or black frame. Custom colors are available upon request.
