SKYTEX® light ridge

Light ridge with excellent daylighting performance that doubles up as vent.

The SKYTEX® light ridge is a product from the HUESKER Light and Air range. Alongside the intelligent LUBRATEC® wind protection/ventilation systems and VENTITEC® high-volume fans, the light ridge plays a key role in optimizing the indoor environment of livestock houses.

The stable, round-arch assembly with patented, two-component fabric sheet achieves optimum light diffusion through the 13 ft 2in – 23 ft (4-7 m) wide opening while minimizing direct sunlight and solar gain, thus preventing the air from heating up.

High wind deflectors and large openings additionally ensure efficient air extraction.


  • Two-ply sheet comprising external protective mesh and internal membrane
  • High stability due to round-arch construction
  • Weather- and UV-resistant
  • Enhanced ventilation performance due to suction created by wind deflectors
  • Opening widths of 13 ft 2 in – 23 ft (4-7 m)

Why choose SKYTEX® light ridges?

The innovative design and materials concept of the SKYTEX® light ridge delivers vastly superior daylighting performance compared to standard solutions. The two-component fabric sheet combines extremely wide daylight diffusion with a high absorption of solar energy, thereby preventing a greenhouse effect.

Various types of sheet are available to meet project-specific requirements.
