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.
Wasco skylight structures are available in a broad range of colors and finishes:
- Mill (Standard)
- Anodized, Kynar 500, Baked Enamel (more information)
- Copper Clad
