Hurricane Resistant Skylights

Hurricane Resistant (GSHR)

Residential Skylights for Curb Mount Applications

Wasco Skylights with hurricane-resistant glazing meet IBC/IRC/FBC, and other stringent state building codes for skylights installed in Wind Zone 3 coastal applications. (FL#14417.12)

Our fixed curb mount hurricane resistant GSHR 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 sizes, with a wide range of  finish color options.

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). Broken glass fragments adhere to the bonded plastic vinyl interlayer, reducing the risk of injury, shattered glass and breaching the building envelope.
