Skylight exterior install

Recommended Posts

Hey guys been a while! Looking for some advice. We are going to apply an exterior film to this skylight but I’m concerned about getting on the glass. The largest panels are 102” so we have to get on the glass to install. The panels are only 22” so we can easily keep our weight on the framing but still a little worried. Anyone have experience with this type of skylight?

I've never installed anything external that large.. but posts I've seen on FB show people using wooden planks to support their weight. If you put them towards the bottom - high enough that you can reach the top... lay the film from top to bottom... then move down and/or remove the plank and do the lower part, that should work.

 

Then if you are going to seal the edges, just use the plank again and repeat. It will keep your weight off the glass without trying to be an acrobat. :)

Thanks Roach kinda of what I was thinking so if felt good to have that validated. Here’s a pic of what we used. Interesting project, used Hanita Tek skylight film. Got to go back in a few days and do the edge seal. Thanks again for the reply.
