Energy Star Logo

Wasco’s Curb Mount skylights feature a thermally broken vinyl curb frame for outstanding energy efficiency longevity, compared to other skylights with wooden and metal curb frames.

Wasco offers a wide range of energy efficient glazings including clear glass, electronically tintable glass, and translucent light diffusing Aerogel insulated polycarbonate panels.

Glazings

eMAX3 Triple Silver Coated Glazing
Wasco’s standard glazing. eMAX3 is an energy efficient glazing which meets the version 6.0 Energy Star program for all climate zones. The eMAX3 Triple Silver Coated Series is a high performance Low-E insulated glass with argon. Also available with laminated glass (EML).

30-30 Triple Glazed Series
Wasco’s most energy efficient glass glazing that meets the version 6.0 Energy Star program for all climate zones. 30-30 Triple Glazed is a triple-paned glass with two argon filled airspaces that provides up to 55% greater insulating value than double-paned skylights with ordinary glass.

Lumira® Aerogel
Wasco skylights with translucent light diffusing Lumira Aerogel filled polycarbonate panels are the highest performing daylighting product available on the market today. Adapting nano technology, Lumira is able to provide a tremendous thermal insulator that is also environmentally sound. Lumira permanently stops connective, conductive, and thermal transfer without an appreciable drop in light transmission.

Wasco also offers Hurricane Resistant (GSHR) glazing that meets Dade County, IBC/IRC/FBC and other stringent state building codes for skylights installed in Wind Zone 3 coastal applications. Hurricane resistant glass appears to be ordinary glass, but shields against damage from wind-borne debris, accidental impacts, forced entry and even unwanted noise.

Explanation of Terms:

VLT (Visible Light): Radiant energy from 380nm – 780nm wavelengths. (% Transmittance): percentage of visible light directly transmitted through glass.

U-Factor: Air-to-air thermal conductance of glass and associated air/gas layers; units are Btu/hr.ft2 deg F.

SHGC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient): Fraction of solar energy transferred indoors both directly (radiation) and indirectly (convection/absorption/re-radiation) through the glass (for reference, 1/8″ clear glass has a SHGC of 0.86).
