“This document is intended to assist the user in understanding the nature of fenestration products and systems which provide features and performance characteristics necessary for effective use on sloped or ‘horizontal’ building envelope surfaces,” said John Westerfield (CrystaLite), Chair of the FGIA Skylight Sloped Glazing Marketing Committee.

AAMA SKY-3 is part of a suite of documents generated to educate interested parties in the proper design, selection, specification and use of skylights. Other skylight documents from FGIA include:
