Achieve rooftop access with Tilt architectural skylights
Achieve rooftop access with Tilt architectural skylights, which double as a rooftop access hatch.
Tilt has developed custom architectural skylights that enable roof terrace access without interrupting neighbours’ views. The Roof Terrace Skylight is the only operable glass skylight on the market that can be utilised with a standard staircase. Tim Phillips explains the benefits of this new system…
Where have Tilt Skylights been installed?
We’ve installed multiple bespoke skylights in Sydney, Victoria, and recently a large format skylight in Vietnam.
We have custom designed and developed our skylights into a standard design that is easier to specify and more cost effective.
The operable skylights, which double as a roof access hatch, have a low profile to ensure neighbouring property views are not obstructed.

When should an architect consider integrating a Tilt Skylight into their designs?
Integration of Tilt Skylights should be considered in the early structural development stage to ensure they can be cost effectively integrated into the design. We provide a structurally certified steel frame and integrate various glass types that satisfy the client’s aesthetic and thermal requirements while addressing specific BASIX requirements.
Aside from the return on investment, what are the main benefits?
The first and obvious benefit is the increased natural light and ventilation into the home. The second benefit, and what I believe to be of most value, is where you have a fixed envelope for building heights. Many architects want to achieve higher ceiling and roof heights without encroaching on neighbouring property views. The Tilt Skylights have a low profile and enable rooftop access without compromising neighbouring property views, unlike any other product I am aware of on the market.
