The Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance (FGIA) has released a new skylight document. AAMA SKY-3-20, Skylight Selection and Daylighting Design Guide including Unit Skylights, Tubular Daylight Devices (TDD) and Sloped Glazing, was developed in 2020. This comprehensive, 51-page document is now available as a complimentary download available to the public. Request a free download now.

“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:

  • AAMA PSSG, Selection and Application Guide for Plastic Glazed Skylights and Sloped Glazing
  • AAMA 1607, Voluntary Installation Guidelines for Unit Skylights
  • TIR-A7, Sloped Glazing Guidelines
