Parasky was established in 1981 by the current CEO, John Allison, a design engineer by profession, who recognized a need for locally made skylights.

In-house designs were established to suit South African parameters and climatic conditions. A marketing team was established and the initial demand was very encouraging and has continued to grow over the years.

Parasky’s range of products incorporates those both for domestic and commercial applications and in addition to the more typical, standard glass pyramids and acrylic domes and barrel vaults, the product range has expanded to vertical glazing, walk-ons, aluminium doors and windows, steel and stainless steel balustraing in various attractive designs, spiral and other staircases in many varieties, patio and pool enclosures.

Parasky’s product range has thus expanded to the extent that all categories of skylights and allied products are now within the scope of the Company’s capabilities.

Parasky is a very versatile Company that not only manufactures the above products, but is specialized in designing products to suit client needs, including project management of specific turnkey projects that Parasky is appointed to.

Parasky has worked extensively, not only in and around Gauteng, Pretoria Region, East, West and South Rands, but also in all the major cities in South Africa.

In addition to the local projects, Parasky has also been involved in work outside South Africa, in Melawi, Swaziland, Lesotho, Angola, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
