Fire-rated Skylights

Is there such a thing as a 1-hour or 2-hour rated skylight?

Technically, and/or typically skylights do not have a fire rating. They are not part of the structural roof therefore do not require a one hour or two hour rating. There are other fire ratings, however. There is Class A or CC1, these are ratings for how much smoke they produce when they are burned, etc. There is also fire-rated glass or glazing.

Some building departments are requesting fire-rated skylights under certain conditions. We have met some of these requirements by supplying a skylight that does not have any aluminum in it’s construction. Call or email (look on this site for contact info) and we’ll get your particular details and a quote.

  1. I have an atrium inside and below the four structural walls. So building department is requiring 2 hour rated glass or translucent cover. Area is 16’x20′. Would you like to supply estimate of glass and frame?
    Please email when complete. Thanks.
