Wasco Skylights with hurricane glazing meet IBC/IRC/FBC, and other stringent state building codes. This hurricane resistant insulating glass skylight can be used for residential sky lighting for contractors for skylights installed in Wind Zone 3 coastal applications.
Available for fixed E-Class™ self-flashing deck mount, G-Series™ curb mount and Architectural Series structural skylights, hurricane glass appears to be ordinary glass, but shields against damage from wind-borne debris, accidental impacts, forced entry and even unwanted noise.
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.
