Replacing Domed Skylights With VELUX Neat Glass Skylights Is a Significant Upgrade.
The Holiday Inn Vail is situated in White River National Forest, and is a 9-minute drive from Beaver Creek Ski Resort. The hotel caters to families and skiers.
The owners wanted to bring a new look for their roof during the hotel’s renovation. Looking at replacements for the acrylic domes, they became interested in the new Velux Neat glass skylights. These sophisticated skylights offered a number of benefits:
- Sleek, modern appearance.
- Argon filled, double paned, lowE³ glass provides a significant improvement in heat gain/loss.
- Clear views without distortion.
- Clean, quiet, safe glass—water sheets off—dirt, bird poop, etc. don’t stick and are washed away—25% quiter than ordinary glass.
All at a lower cost than a like for like acrylic dome replacement. The decision was easy.
