Un-insulated

The insulated retractable sliding glass roof systems we provide are well known for their reliability. The roof system has been patented for 15 years, and can be found in commercial buildings, restaurants, cafés, sport halls, hockey arenas, palaces, private houses, public buildings etc. The customer who is looking for a sliding glass roof is usually a customer who have a project visualized, and don’t want to be limited by conventional skylights or roof windows.

The un-insulated sliding roof is very versatile and can have multiple functions.

  • Sliding glass roof, covering an enclosed area, 75% retractable
  • Sliding glass roof, resting on top of structure, 100% retractable
  • Gazebo, used as the full roof structure of the gazebo
  • Pergola, protecting the furniture and people under it from rain.
  • Building permit problems, because the sliding glass roof is not a fixed system and falls in the pergola category, it will easen the building permit requirements, and some times skips them fully.

Maintenance

The sliding glass roof whether it is the insulated or un-insulated version, requires very low maintenance.

Motorized sliding un-insulated glass roof
The motors used for the sliding glass roofs are single phase, 220-volt tubular motors. Each motor operates two bays of windows, allowing 3 windows in each segment or bay, to slide under the fourth, opening up 75% of the covered area. The motorized sliding roofs have no visible moving parts as they are covered by motor and belt covers.

Service is recommended after 1 year of use, and only includes tensing the belt.

Manually operated sliding un-insulated glass roof
When the sliding roofs are operated manually, an adjustable aluminium rod is supplied to push and pull the glass panels in desired direction.
If you intend to keep the sliding glass roof closed most of the time, and just occasionally open a bay or two, the manual system is recommended.

Service is optional and is usually not needed if the sliding roof tracks and structure is cleaned twice yearly.
