Hurricane/Impact Rated & Blast Resistant Skylights
Custom Skylights Engineered for Hurricane/Impact Rated and Blast Resistant
Super Sky offers a myriad of hurricane/impact rated and blast resistant skylights for commercial and residential structures, as well as military and government buildings. These performance-driven skylight systems provide outstanding safety and security against cyclic wind pressure, flying debris, incidental impacts, break-ins and even excess noise. Impact resistant skylights significantly reduce the threat of structural damage, injury and even death.
Our hurricane/impact rated and blast resistant skylight systems are engineered to withstand the most hazardous conditions to ensure you and your property remains safe and secure. Super Sky’s catastrophe resistant skylights uphold the industry’s most scrupulous standards. In fact, Super Sky currently holds four Miami-Dade County, Florida NOAs (Notice of Acceptance) for our impact rated skylight products. These impact resistant skylights are not only required in Florida, but on virtually every coastal region from Texas to Maine when a skylight is part of a building envelope. Our hurricane/impact rated and blast resistant skylights insulate you from property damage and danger from both weather and would-be-intruders.
Super Sky’s impact rated products are required in states governed by the International Building Code (IBC) where structures are within one mile of a coastline and wind speed exceeds 110 mph. Our impact resistant skylights are also required in any area where wind speeds can exceed 120 mph. A skylight located higher than 30 feet above grade requires a small missile impact rated system. A skylight located 30 feetor below in elevation, necessitates large missile impact requirements.
