About Us

The Skylight Industry Association membership is made up of skylight manufacturers, skylight resellers, companies that supply our raw materials and skylight installers. 

In 1989 a small group of these people, based in Victoria , formed a Skylight Industry Association for the purposes of promoting quality products and professional business practices among members.

The Skylight Industry Association Incorporated (SIA) became a legal entity in June of 2001 and is the recognised national organisation representing the skylight industry in the energy and other professional issues. Today, the SIA has members from all states of Australia , with its management team having representatives from each state.

The Association continues to set professional standards and has been instrumental, in partnership with the Australian Window Association, in creating a Skylight Energy Rating Scheme to meet the BCA energy requirements. This scheme is to be marketed along with the Window Energy Rating Scheme and is called WERS for Skylights.

Association members, working with Standards Australia, have formalised the quality aspects of skylights through the creation of the Skylights Standard AS4285. This standard sets out the basic structural and performance requirements of skylights that members still adhere to today. Tested products carry a small sticker to indicate their compliance with the requirements of the Standard.

As members we are committed to provide you with the best possible solution to your natural lighting needs, by collectively keeping abreast of the latest research, technical knowledge and government regulations. Every member abides by the SIA Code of Ethics and Statement of Objectives.

In June 2009, the Association released a ground breaking document, the "Industry Code of Practice, Design considerations for the performance of skylights, tubular skylights and roof windows". A FREE Download of the document is available by clicking the banner below.

The Mission of the SIA is to:

  • be the peak membership organisation of the Australian Skylighting Industry;
  • promote and endorse compliant, sustainable and fit-for-purpose products;
  • assist our members with technical, regulatory, legislative, marketing and certification support;
  • engender industry wide best practice.
