Imagine a sunlit kitchen with a soaring ceiling that opens up at the touch of a button. A mall atrium that houses a bright eating area, with roof panels that retract to create an open air experience. OpenAire makes it possible with the launch of standard-size multi-pane skylights that can be used alone or be grouped to stunning effect in commercial, residential, hospitality, community and retail applications. This versatile new offering allows up to 65% of the skylight area to be opened up, creating unique, energy-efficient sunlit spaces with tremendous user appeal.

OpenAire is the leader in designing, manufacturing and installing beautiful retractable enclosures and operable skylights for landmark buildings around the world. From retractable pool enclosures in luxury residential applications to indoor/outdoor restaurant patios to European-style covered shopping “streets, ” their imaginative, innovative solutions create dramatic, sustainable, airy spaces that people love to spend time in.
OpenAire has brought that extensive custom expertise into an innovative, standard-size product; the skylights come in 3-panel systems (5’x 15’/ 1.5m x 4.6m and 4’ x 12’ / 1.2m x 3.7m), and 2-panel systems (5’ x 10’ / 1.5m x 3m and 4’ x 8’ / 1.2m x 2.4m). The new operable multi-pane skylights offer natural light, ventilation, plus an array of design options. Watch the Skylight in Action!
OpenAire’s new, operable multi-pane skylight will benefit your projects, by offering the following:
- A streamlined look. Flush-fit windows, hidden drive mechanisms and smooth interior frames create a clean and uncluttered appearance.
- Smart operation. Skylights are controlled wirelessly with panels that slide open in silence at the touch of a button. A smart system with a rain sensor is also available.
- Maintenance-free. Expertly engineered with the same emphasis on quality and excellence as OpenAire’s custom applications, standard skylights feature a thermally-broken aluminum frame and tempered laminated glass which won’t break down, corrode, or require repairs.
- Beautifully green. OpenAire skylights contribute significantly to sustainable design and energy efficiency, and can help your project earn LEED credits. The self-contained solar power system means no electrical or wire hook-ups are needed, and the skylights improve daylighting. Plus, opening them up cools things down naturally, which means no AC is needed for occupant comfort.
“Our new skylight offering brings OpenAire expertise to a whole new market, ” says Mark Albertine, president, OpenAire. “They make it easy for architects and builders to add a unique element to luxury homes and retail spaces, and for renovators to create incredible appeal in existing spaces. Plus, the remote operation makes them a snap for homeowners to use, too.”
