Radius Barrel Vault Skylights
Barrel vault skylights are often used to open up and bring natural light to hallways, corridors and walkways connected to buildings. In radius barrel vault skylights, the glass has a true curved radius, as opposed to a segmented barrel vault skylight. Vault radius can be determined by aesthetic intent, architectural and structural requirements, or a combination of the two. Curb size for barrel vault skylights is determined by skylight size and structural requirements. Shallow pitched or large radius arcs may require wider curbs, while smaller hemispherical vaults can usually use a standard curb size for mounting. Polycarbonate glazing can be used as a value engineered option.
