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

Energy-Star

Wasco’s E-Class and Curb Mount models, with our standard or custom glazings, meet the version 6.0 Energy Star program for all climate zones.

Models and glass glazings that meet the version 6.0 Energy Star program for all climate zones:

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.

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).
