Technical Information

Performance

Skylantern rooflights have been engineered to comply with severe weather ratings (Wind loads 1.32 Kn/m2 and snow loads 1.0 Kn/m2 ).

The structure when finished using standard planitherm double glazing units will have a thermal U value of approximately 1.3 W/m2 k. BBA test results indicate that the U value for Skylantern roof rafters is 1.5 W/m2 k. Secondary drainage channels have been designed into the PVC thermal break. This allows drainage channels to run over the bottom ringbeam, providing a unique, but effective way of draining the roof system (Water test pressure 300 pascals).

Glazing

All double glazing is Kite marked toughened glass which is 5 times stronger than ordinary glass (BS 6206:1981 with a Class O fire rating). All Skylantern glazing has continuous spacer bars and are dual sealed (BS 5713). Double glazing or triple glazed units rest on a co extruded EPDM gasket and are held into position by a pressure plate and aluminium exterior cover cap.

NOTE: Units should be installed in accordance with BS 6262:1982, BS 8000, Part 7: 1990 GGF glazing manual or European equivalent.

Materials

Framework consists of a high tensile aluminium section (Alloy 6063 T6 to BS 1474: 1987) box section 40mm wide by 68mm, 81mm and 97mm in depth, giving the options of profiles to suit larger spans. The thermal break comes in the form of a PVC extension adaptor connected to the main rafter box section. This section is designed to receive an aluminium exterior cover cap. All Skylantern rooflights are produced in line with BS EN ISO 9001: 2000 9001: 2000 quality control conditions and are BBA approved to market leading standards.

Construction and Delivery

Skylantern rooflights are delivered to site in an easy-to-assemble kit form, with full installation instructions included to enable safe and easy transportation to roof level.
