Overhead Glazing Systems

At EBSA, we specialise in the design and installation of the PR60 operable glass roof system from Lamilux.

PR60 Operable Glass Roof

The Fixed and Operable PR60 Glass Roof system is one of the most advanced overhead glazing systems on the market. The superior design of the PR60 has been recognised by the Passive House Institute with the Energy Save variant receiving certification to Passive House category phA.

The PR60 is not a skylight, but rather a glass roof which is thermally broken to minimise heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter. The system incorporates many proprietary features to improve performance including an integrated secondary drainage channel.

A feature of the PR60 system is the ability to span up to 5 metres unsupported and to incorporate operable elements (ventilation flaps) for natural ventilation and smoke relief. Fully compliant with H1 Energy Efficiency provisions the PR60 provides the ability to deliver natural ventilation and daylight to almost any project.

Whilst standard skylights are limited in choice of glazing and size, the PR60 can be configured to suit almost any project such as the 5 x 40m long operable glass roofs on Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School in Melbourne or the 5m x 9m glass roof on Penhros College in Perth.

Lamilux Avs Technology

The special AVS technology (patent pending) developed by LAMILUX ensures proper ventilation of the glazing rebate in Ransom.

A difference between the pressure in the glazing rebates of adjacent mullions (rafters) is created by the wind and causes air to flow through the glazing rebate of the transoms.

The “passive” nature of this process makes the system extremely cost-effective, since no active ventilation, using fans for example, is required.

Operable Flaps for Natural Ventilation and Smoke Relief


An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) was created in accordance with ISO 14025 and EN 15804 as commissioned by LAMILUX Heinrich-Strunz-Gruppe for the daylight elements CI Systems Glazed Architecture PR60, Smoke Lift Type M. The objective was to identify the potential environmental influences related to the elements.

To allow this to happen, a life-cycle assessment (LCA) was performed in accordance with ISO 14040/44, for which the standard defines the method and framework.

The life-cycle assessment is a method of evaluating the environmental aspects related to a product and the product-specific, potential environmental influence of extracting the raw materials (cradle) through production, use up to recycling/disposal (end of product live).

With a view to this, an EPD is used for participating in tendering processes in the scope of sustainable building certification systems and allows the environmental performance of a product to be communicated.

Integration with other EBSA Products
