Architectural Skylight Systems Case Study: School of San JuanDĀLYTE2021-11-18T11:04:13-07:00
Replacement of two skylights destroyed by hurricane Maria. DᾹLYTE provided the new structural aluminum frame and polycarbonate glazing – materials only. Caribe Glass demo’d the existing units and installed the new skylights.
The unique shape of both ridge skylights created additional design challenges. The new skylights needed to meet the high hurricane wind loading of 165mph. Besides the positive pressures from the wind – having the skylights open below also created high negative (uplift) loading requirements.
DᾹLYTE’s design and Solid Works expertise provided the required tools to solve the specific project requirements. Rendering the units in 3D allowed the design team to identify profile and connection challenges. The final design utilized large aluminum rafters combined with steel inserts and components. Fully fabricating and assembling the skylights before shipping to PR assured the final install would be seamless.
