Scottsdale Atrium Enclosures | Atrium Enclosure in Scottsdale AZ
An alternative to a greenhouse is an atrium. An atrium is an open space inside a home with no roofing at all, where plants can receive the sunlight they need to grow. With a traditional atrium, however, maintenance is a headache, as accumulated dust, leaves and debris must be cleared away by hand on a regular basis. An atrium enclosure allows for all of the same benefits of a traditional atrium - without the hassle of regular maintenance. FREELITE's atrium enclosures cover the roof of the atrium with a skylight system that keeps out rain, dust and insects while still allowing for plenty of natural light to keep plants healthy. An atrium is usually separated from other rooms in the home by doors and windows. After installing an atrium enclosure, however, the area can be left “as is” or atrium doors and windows can be removed, making this space part of the home.
Many different types of skylights can be used for atrium enclosures, and there are a variety of sizes and options to choose from to fit your needs - and your budget. For example, a standard-size acrylic dome unit will suffice to cover a space up to 8 ft. by 8 ft. As an alternative, the opening in the roof may be framed in so that a smaller and less costly skylight can be installed. To enclose larger areas, a pyramid-shaped or “A-frame” glass skylight can be used. No matter what type of skylight is used, however, it is important to install venting panels to help exhaust the heat and shading accessories to allow you to control the amount of sunlight that enters the atrium.
