MAGS BAR Site Built Skylight | Landmark Homes | CO 80111
THE SITUATION: The contractor came to us and said “I have an opening in the roof and a customer who handed me a picture she wants to duplicate. What can you do? Can we make her dream happen?”
THE SOLUTION: We had no problem designing a hipped ridge skylight for the opening. The rafters were cut and installed. Then, using our own MAGS BAR, we installed the base framework; measured, ordered and installed the glass; and finished off the project with beauty capping and flashing.
MAGS BAR Skylights | American Heritage Center | Laramie WY
THE SITUATION: The design for supporting new skylights within the openings was inadequate. Most of the skylights are wedge-shaped and of different sizes and some are very narrow—requiring minimal structural elements in order to maximize glass area.
Prefabrication of the skylight was not an option for two reasons—this facility must remain open to the public and time constraints could not be met.
THE SOLUTION: We were able to mount the framework outside the opening—for more glazing and better daylighting. Site built fabrication allowed us to provide a nearly flush mount glazing extrusion in a custom color and finish to match the metal roofing material. It also allowed us to meet the time constraints, coordinate with the new roof construction, and keep the openings weatherproof and safe to the public below during the installation.
