Skydoor is designed for day to day access to roof terraces and is operated by intelligent LED control switch responding to both one touch and press and hold requests.

The Skydoor opens out to a maximum 87° at full travel by means of synchronised dual actuators but the unit can also be stopped mid travel at any point enabling its use as a large scale natural ventilation rooflight.

Including an overload cut-off, thermally broken frame, dual-colour powder coated finish and a built-in proximity detector for user safety. All control electronics, mechanisms and power supply are completely hidden within the framework. Clean lines and clear views in and out.

Features and benefits:

  • Concealed operating mechanisms.
  • Access and ventilation functionality.
  • Qualicoat approved dual colour powder coated finish.
  • Maximum daylight due to minimum framework.
  • Thermally broken framework.
  • Infra-red and current override safety features as standard.
  • The open lid can act as a balustrade to protect one side of the opening.
