Clayton High School Recreation Center

Pinnacle 350 Skylights

The School District of Clayton is located in the City of Clayton, six miles west of St. Louis, Missouri. In 2010, the school’s recreation center began experiencing problems with the FRP (Fiberglass-Reinforced Polymer) skylights in the building.

The failing units in the gymnasium were replaced with Wasco® metal-framed skylight structures. The 9’6” wide x 42’ long Pinnacle 350 double pitch skylights feature 25mm clear polycarbonate panels filled with Lumira® aerogel for superior thermal performance.

The pool roof skylight was retrofitted with a 9’6” wide x 83’ long structural ridge system. Like the double pitch, this skylight features a clear anodized metal-frame with Lumira® aerogel-filled multiwall polycarbonate panels, providing more visible light transmittance at a better U-Value than the previous FRP system.

The Wasco® Pinnacle 350 glazing system was the ideal replacement solution for the Clayton School District skylight renovation project. The high performance properties of the new skylights will provide both visual and thermal comfort, controlling the amount of daylight, quality of light, and amount of solar heat gain let into the building.

Founded in 1935, Wasco® Skylights is one of America’s largest skylight manufacturers. Click here to learn more about their full line of commercial and residential daylighting solutions.
