Retractable Skylights

Our retractable skylights bring spaces to life.

They open up to let in beautiful, warm weather and close up when it’s cold or rainy, offering users year-round enjoyment in unique, naturally lit, dramatically beautiful spaces.

OpenAire develops custom operable skylights that are as elegant in operation as they are in design: they open silently and smoothly, and close tight to keep out drafts and moisture. Our designs are unique and fully customizable, adding sophistication and elegance to any space.

OpenAire’s operable large-span skylight systems function faithfully in applications ranging from all-season restaurant patios to large-scale waterparks and aquatic centers, plus health clubs, waterparks, shopping centers, community centers, private residences, hotels and more.
