Structural Skylights
Miami Dade High Velocity Hurricane Zone (HVHZ)

Available in Pinnacle HU framing systems with 3.5” or 6” aluminum rafters. Tested to meet 80 psf design pressure, and small and large missile impact. Up to 15’ wide spans. Available with laminated or insulated glazing in a wide range of configurations. Low Profile system also available for Impact Rated for Wind-Borne Debris Region (WBDR).

Wasco uses hurricane-resistant insulating glass made of heat strengthened low-E lites permanently bonded with one or more interlayers of durable SGP (DuPont SentryGlas® Plus). In exhaustive impact tests, broken glass fragments have adhered to the bonded plastic vinyl interlayer, reducing the risk of injury, shattered glass and breaching the building envelope.
