Replacing old and worn out drop-out dome skylights
We have been awarded a contract to replace 61 skylights for a firm in Chicago. Their existing skylights are drop-out domes that have degraded and leak.
The new skylights are drop-out’s also. The customer wanted mechanical skylights but the local codes call for a higher curb and so they chose to stay with drop-outs.
Drop-out skylights will shrink when exposed to heat allowing the outer layer to fall inside. This allows smoke to vent out. The outer acrylic lens is cabled to the skylight frame, preventing any injuries to people inside the building.
