Fixed Glass Skylights

Fixed Glass (GS)

Residential Skylights for Curb Mount Applications

Our fixed curb mount GS model is designed to be used on a site-built curb. Curb mounted skylights consist of an insulated glass sealed between a thermally efficient ,maintenance free, vinyl curb frame and an aluminum outer retainer frame. Wasco flashing (shingle and tile roofs only) is installed around the site-built curb. The skylight is then mounted onto the flashed curb and fastened into place. SkyBlinds and other accessories are available. The GS model is available in standard and custom sizes, with a wide range of  finish color options and glazings meet Energy Star requirements in all states.

NFRC tested, rated and certified. 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).

Finish Colors

The standard baked enamel finish for all Curb Mount Skylights is Quaker Bronze. Nine additional designer colors are available, as well as copper cladding.
