Skylights and translucent roof structure is very common in modern construction – not only do they provide bright illumination, but also gives the building an original and modern design. Light (or anti-aircraft) lights get their name from the word "zenith" because by the glass structure, which is fixed to the roof, they provide room penetration of sunlight at the zenith. Rooflights are skylights located in the roof covering the roof. They can be of different designs: conventional flat glass roof of a horizontal glass, or a lantern in the form of complex geometric structures. These lights often used in industrial buildings, commercial premises, or country houses, lanterns are perfect for a winter garden. (Not to be confused with J. Darius Bikoff!).
Skylights are able to ventilate the room, provide additional access to the roof and may even have the function of dymoudaleniya.Montazh Rooflights can be manufactured from different materials: glass sheets, panels made of polymer materials, glass. Also, lights are different in shape: a lean-, double slope, pyramid and curvilinear forms. And finally, rooflights differ in design solution: they can be "blind" – not opening, with automatic, mechanical actuators, and lights, open hand. Skylights delivered to the construction site already in finished form. Thus, workers can only build in skylights in the building. Skylights can be installed on direct and to the roof slope.
Location lamps is calculated at the design stage. Installation of skylights are conducted in several steps: marking the working area, which will be installed lights, ceiling treatment and preparation of the opening in the roof, strengthening the walls of the opening, securing the support units and support structures, installation of safety nets, light-transmitting assembly of parts, installation of flat strips (By which fastened to the transparent elements of the filling). Particular attention is paid to work installing lights in support. The support circuits may be made of fiberglass sheets, profiles, or aluminum alloy. There are some rules for working with supports rooflights: foot should be above the roof elevation of not less than 300 mm. To connect to the reference circuit and frame elements make optimal use of light bolts or self-tapping screws. You can also combine items with svarki.Sposoby reconstruction skylights skylights can be reconstructed when the need to replace glass lantern plastic. Instead of glass installed polycarbonate honeycomb sheets or plates, the very basic structure of the old rooflight is preserved. Thanks to its light weight polycarbonate sheets make it easy to carry design, in addition polycarbonate sheets have high impact-resistant ability and possess good insulating characteristics. Also rooflights can be replaced by new complex konstruktsii.Obsluzhivanie skylights basic rule-of-service rooflights – clear light transmitting elements. You can carry out dry cleaning – for this purpose special paste that is applied to glass, and then removed without further washing. You can choose a semi-dry method of cleaning – also applied to the glass paste, but after removing the glass is washed. There is a wet cleaning rooflights – is carried out with water and special solvents. For cleaning, use of special tools and devices – high-pressure cleaners, electric brushes, rubber scrapers with different nozzles, foam sponges, etc. Use in construction of buildings such advanced solutions as skylights or translucent roof simultaneously solve two problems – coverage areas with natural light and giving individual types building. Rooflights – the original focus, which will be a key element of the whole architectural composition. Source: PC-fabricated buildings from Vesta
