Components always assemble the same consistent way. Sills encompass the entire perimeter so installers rely less on sealants.
Continuous sill enclosure around skylight perimeter helps reduce air infiltration through weep holes and effectively guards against water intrusion. Thermally-enhanced construction.
Through bolt fastening system further eases installation, providing a clean, aesthetically pleasing look on both the interior and exterior.
