Auburn® Custom & Pre-engineered Skylights

Auburn® Custom & Pre-engineered Skylights

cutaway-auburnAuburn® Engineered skylights are designed and engineered for long-term performance, and make a great daylighting choice if you’re looking for the durability and longevity of glass, or simply enjoy dramatic views of the sky. They’re available in custom and pre-engineered configurations, and also offer mixed glazing options as they can also incorporate polycarbonate multi-wall and acrylic glazing as well as Guardian 275® translucent panels.

Auburn® systems aren’t designed to span the largest openings; they’re optimized for small and medium projects and are engineered to save time, money, and weight in your next daylighting project. Auburn® engineered skylights feature high-performance sealants, built-in water management, and time-proven EPDM gasketing to provide the ultimate protection: three-level redundancy to keep water out of your building. In addition, they are available in a wide variety of configurations, along with numerous glass and finish options.


Major recently announced a new option for your glass skylight needs – Auburn® E+. An evolution of our existing skylight line, Auburn® E+ features a number of performance improvements including a new thermal cap for enhanced protection from extreme temperatures, a modern flush-glazed design, available low-e glass, insulated flashing, and an unlimited pitch curb connection for easier assembly on-site.

Auburn® glass skylights have long been a dependable and economical daylighting option, and Major has improved on its success by integrating new technology that helps isolate the outside environment from your building’s occupants – improving both occupant comfort and the bottom line. The new system is tested to ASTM E283/330/331 standards, and features high-performance glass options, multiple finish options, and numerous design configurations that will provide architects the highest level of design freedom.

For smaller openings and standard sizes, consider our newly updated Auburn® Quick Ship™ Self-flashing Single Slope skylights, available in sizes up to 25 square feet, with pre-assembled options available for ease of installation and quick lead times. These new single slope skylights feature thermal strut technology in the framing, allowing for a versatile combination of strength and high thermal performance, including improved condensation resistance and U-factors over traditional aluminum framed systems.

No matter which option is right for you – custom or pre-engineered – Auburn® skylights are a smart choice to solve your daylighting challenges.

Other benefits include:

  • Low initial cost and long-term energy savings.
  • Possible LEED® credit opportunities for both new construction and existing buildings.
  • High-performance gaskets and sealants provide peace of mind and long-term performance.
  • Auburn® Engineered custom systems feature universal “slope adapters” fit all standard rafters, creating precise slope control.
  • Auburn® Engineered custom systems come standard with tubular rafters that frequently eliminate the need for support tubes.
  • Guaranteed against defective materials and construction for one year from date of purchase (exclusions apply – see final warranty for details).
