Custom Built Skylights and Sloped Glazing

NFRC Rated - Structural Engineering - LEED Credits

NAMI certified and NFRC rated for thermal performance. Compliant to the International Building Code; structural deflection limited to L/175 per ASTM E 330, air infiltration tested per ASTM E 283 at 6.24, and water penetration tested per ASTM E 331 up to 30.00 psf. Refer to our NFRC Quick Reference Guide for more rated values.

Refer to our LEED v2.2 / v3.0 Verification Document to see how CrystaLite skylights can help your LEED Project, including Recycled Content and Regional Materials.

You envision it, CrystaLite designs and builds it.

For residential, commercial and industrial applications, CrystaLite has designed and manufactured a wide range of custom skylights which can bring added dimensions to a building’s aesthetics.

We have three basic frame weight options: light, medium, and heavy. All CrystaLite frames are structurally engineered to meet or exceed local building code requirements. Medium and heavy frames are designed to span greater distances than light frames. Light frames can be used in place of heavier frame types where supports such as rafters are in place, supplied by other.

 
 

Solar Smart Operator

Designed to be used without any additional power and wiring from the building.

The intelligence of Solar Smart extends to the handheld remote; bidirectional feedback display is the most noteworthy to the end user. The large and readable display provides feedback on a number of critical items including; Open / Close status displayed in percentage, operator and remote battery levels, solar charge rate, temperature automatic functions, and several other advanced programming options. A single remote can be paired with one or multiple operators within range.

Operator

Lifting Capacity
60 lbs at the chain which provides operation to hinged systems weighing up to 120 lbs.
Closing Force
The operator will close until 30-35 lbs of force is reached, sufficient to compress weather seals.
Pull-Out Resistance
Tested by independent certified laboratory to resist a pull-out force of 750 lbs while maintaining ability to operate after force was removed.
Opening Distance
Maximum travel of the chain is 8 inches. Factory default setting is 80% of total travel but this is easily changed by the end-user at any time.
Finish Materials
The structural base and mounting bracket are white painted aluminum. The decorative cover is white plastic. All external surfaces are paint-able.
Battery Pack
A Lithium 7.2 V rechargeable battery pack, capacity 1800 mAh. End-user replaceable with an expected life of up to 10 years under normal use and conditions.

Remote

Display
Large, easy to read LCD shows function and status information for both the operator and remote control via bi-directional communication. Temperature displayed when not operating the system. Opening and closing status displayed by percentage during operation.
Operator and Remote battery levels displayed by percentage. Solar or AC adapter charge rate displayed in Milliamperes (mA).
Communication
FCC approved RF bi-directional communication.
Battery
Standard AA alkaline batteries, with an expected life of 1 year under normal use.
Base/Mounting
Stand up base integrated into design and a wall mount bracket is included.
Thermostat Automation
Integrated sensor for automated thermostat operation, end-user programmable.
Standard Features
Operates up to 9 units per Zone in up to 9 separate Zones, for a total capacity of 81 units.
Multiple remotes can be used.
Pairing and programming information is wirelessly synced between remotes to eliminate redundant programming.

Solar Panel

Type/Size/Output
Amorphous silicon. Approx 13 x 3 inch.
Power output is a nominal 0.8 Watts at a maximum of 10 VDC. Typical current output when connected to the operator is 0 to 120mA depending on weather and battery conditions.
Degradation
Expected 25% degradation in the first 1-2 years, then remains unchanged throughout the panel life of more than 20 years. This degradation is typical of solar panel assemblies. Solar Smart has been designed with this solar panel degradation in mind.
Mounting Hardware
Brackets and fasteners are stainless steel, ideal for outdoor corrosion resistance.
