RS36 R-Panel Daylighting

RS36 Skyline Series – Integrated Daylighting Systems for R-Panel Roofs

The RS36 R-Panel Daylighting System is an excellent alternative to the flat style “LTP” skylights used to provide daylighting on an R-Panel roof. The RS36 offers superb lighting, does not yellow, and will provide uncompromising safety via an integrated, factory-installed, OSHA-compliant fall protection screen.

RS36 R-Panel Daylighting System

The RS36 skylight system is engineered to integrate with a 12″ R-Panel/High-Rib roof. Therefore, the curb dimensions allow the unit to be installed in the same footprint as LTP models. This makes the RS36 perfect for retrofit or new construction projects!

The RS36 skyline series includes the option of an economical single prismatic glazing or improved thermal performance of a dual-glazed configuration. The arch design of the prismatic outer dome captures light at periods of low sun angle such as early morning, afternoon or during Fall and Winter seasons.

With the RS36 R-Panel solution for integrated daylight, you have a sealed natural lighting solution for High-Rib R-Panel roofs that will enhance the interior brightness and environment of any building space.

Key Benefit

Safety & performance at a lower installed cost versus standard skylight and safety screen alternative.

R-Panel skylights provide soft, natural illumination of interiors along with excellent sealing and resistance to adverse weather conditions. They are an energy saver and can be installed to R-Panel metal roofing panels for an integrated, seamless fit.
