The Red Sea Mall roof includes a set of skylights that form its roofing system. The skylights are divided into 3 packages:
The Central Court Skylight has a clear span of 60 m and length of 120 m, the Arched Skylights (qty: 2) have a clear span of 30 m and length of 150 m, and the Side Mall Skylights (qty: 4) have relatively smaller dimensions.
