Skylights from Unicel Architectural


High quality, energy efficient skylights are an important part of building today's environment homes and buildings. Skylight systems admit more light per unit area than windows, and distribute it more evenly over a space due to their positioning in a building.

Skylights from Unicel Architectural

Unicel is specialized in the large architectural side of the skylight business that requires customized projects. What makes us really unique is our ability to build sophisticated skylights for different architectural purposes (daylight and heat control, sustainable design, enhanced aesthetics, energy savings etc).

Available in various geometric shapes, Unicel Architectural Skylights feature a steady rain-screen system providing proper drainage and ventilation, while an internal condensation gutter is integrated into the profiles, for natural evaporation.

Also, the polyshim sealing joint acts as a hermetic shield against air and vapor infiltration. The thermal break between interior and exterior profiles provides a good transmission coefficient. Made of aluminum profiles with concealed stainless steel fasteners, the skylight structures feature snap-on cover plates of various shapes, which lead to a wide range of combinations for both commercial and residential use.

Unicel can also provide turnkey solutions to daylight control challenges, incorporating sunshade systems and Vision Control® panels into the skylight structures. Thanks to its tremendous thermal performance, Vision Control® insulated louvered glazing helps to reduce power consumption and saves on capital cost and annual operational energy cost. Therefore, architectural projects that use Vision Control® in skylight structures can earn LEED credits.


No matter where they are used, in commercial or residential projects, skylights make an architectural statement; they introduce natural light in everyday activities and promote aesthetic design. Unicel Architectural Skylights use special mullions that offer increased durability and sleek shapes to any project they are incorporated in. Also, architects prefer specifying our skylights thanks to their energy efficiency features.

According to recent research, a skylight with a Vision Control® glazed area of 5,000 square ft. will reduce capital cost by $25,000 and will annually save $18,000 in operational energy cost compared to a similar double-glazed structure. The same comparison can be made in the case of a wide atrium with skylights of 23,200 square ft. (2,155 square meters): Vision Control® reduces capital costs by $80,000 and it annually saves $65,000 in operational energy cost.
