The walk-in light well glazing


Basement rooms are mostly dark. Basement rooms are mostly dark. For this reason, windows are installed which which provide access to daylight through light shafts, while at the same time protecting these shafts against the soil pressure. The SKYFLOOR BL ensures that the maximum amount of light is let in, even to basement floors. At the same time, the surface remains accessible: garden and traffic access are not restricted

Often, neither the amount of incoming light nor the appearance of the conventional light shaft are satisfactory due to… due to the very bulky steel grid. SKYFLOOR BL provides an ideal solution made of walk-on floor glass and shaft covers. The existing grate is replaced by a walk-on glass cover framed in stainless steel, which directs as much incoming daylight as possible to the basement floor. In this way, incoming daylight can be directed to the basement floor without barriers with maximum light yield. By means of a ventilation track extending along the wall of the house, the shaft as well as the adjacent cellar space remain ventilated.

As well as maximized use of incoming daylight, you will also have a high quality, clean-lined feature, which retains the full use of terraces, garden and circulation areas.
