Vented skylights are available in various forms.
The passively vented skylight allows a transfer of air into the room, however if a greater volume of air transfer is required then a mechanically vented skylight is an option.
This is available in two options:
- Larger traditional skylights with the exhaust fan installed on the dome or
- Smaller skylights where the mechanical ventilation is separate to the skylight.
Mechanically Vented Skylights
An Exhaust fan can be installed in skylight dome
A vented skylight has a glocell diffuser at the ceiling to allow the transfer of air from the room below.
Standard skylights have a prismatic diffuser at the ceiling. The myriad of prisms are designed to diffuse the light evenly over a wide area
Combo Ventilation with Skylight:
Ventilated skylights are ideal where ventilation and light is required as a combination. This can apply in bathrooms, ensuites, laundries, kitchens and other rooms.
- In wet rooms they remove moisture and steam keeping them dry
- In rooms with a stale air environment, they promote fresh air circulation
- In kitchens they can assist in extracting out cooking smells.
