Opening Skylights

Skylight Specialists skylights have been specifically designed for New Zealand’s harsh and non-forgiving weather and coastal conditions.  Using his vast knowledge of all brands and make of skylights available in New Zealand, David and his designers came up with a unique design that has eliminated all the failings that we have found in other skylights.  The end result is a robust and watertight skylight that will outlast any other skylight available in New Zealand.  Our skylights are constructed of a fully welded seamless frame. This guarantees they will not rust, rot or weaken over time, unlike other skylight brands. Because our skylights are welded, and not held together with silicone, glue and screws, they will stay strong no matter what weather is thrown its way.


Our opening skylights are designed to be Top Hung, as we feel this is the most practical and robust design for New Zealand’s weather conditions. We will not manufacture centre pivot opening skylights as if left unattended they can blow completely open in high winds, leaving your home exposed to the elements. It is impossible for our Top Hung design to blow open because we construct them with a double-link articulated chain, enclosed construction type.


Skylight Specialists endeavour to only use New Zealand products to manufacture their skylights when and where possible.  All glass is rated at a minimum of very high wind zone and all come with Low E Climagard coating with Argon gas.  All our skylights are custom made, so you are not restricted to standard off the shelf sizes.  This way we can make a skylight to not only lighten your home but to suit and enhance it too. Our objective is to create and install skylights that seamlessly fit into the individual style of the building so they look like they have always been there.


Options are available for manual opening, electric opening and rain sensor opening.
