All our curb mount and self flashing frame systems (fixed and operable) are available with glass glazing as an option. Curb mount Models G-PVCCM, G-FF, GV-PVCCM, and GV-FF are all designed for mounting on roofs with minimum 2:12 pitch. Our self flashing Models G-PVCSR, G-SR, GV-PVCSR, and GV-SR however, require a minimum roof pitch of 3:12. See 'Glass Performance' section for glass options. Complete details and specifications are available upon request.
With the use of our in house designed tubular structural skylight system we can satisfy a wide variety of shapes such as pyramids, polygons, and hipped ridge. All aluminum frame members are extruded with complete thermal break and can be painted to match almost any colour and finish. Our exclusive frame design can accommodate any slope between 18 and 60 degrees with curb openings of up to 16', and enables us to offer an industry exclusive 2 year warranty. Glazing is available in a wide variety of options, including safety glass, acrylic, and polycarbonate, in single or double glazed. Complete details and specifications are available upon request.
Our butted and clustered system provides a cost-effective alternative to 'custom' skylights by combining two or more standard skylight sizes to form one unit.
