This self-flashing curbed unit is available in two standard sizes – 30" x 36" and 36" x 36" – and is manufactured from 14-gauge painted gray galvanized steel. Custom sizes and curb mount units are available. The curb is 12" in height with a 3.5" flange with mounting holes for roof attachment.

All hardware is corrosion-resistant and all fasteners are self-locking, and include:

  • Interior handle with positive, one-point locking mechanism and provision for padlock
  • Exterior handle with provision for padlock
  • Pre-lubricated compression springs encased in zinc-plated telescopic tubes for smooth and controlled operation in any position

Carlisle has added super-insulating silica aerogel-filled structural polycarbonate panels as a glazing option in its SunWeld skylight product line. Low-density aerogel is a solid-state, semi-transparent material with excellent insulating properties that effectively diffuses light.

Carlisle's SunWeld aerogel-glazed unit utilizes a flat inner panel of 16mm structural aerogel-filled polycarbonate in combination with an outer dome thermoformed from prismatic acrylic. This proprietary combination of light-transmitting materials results in a glazing system that features a U-Value of 0.17 (R 5.88), a VLT (Visible Light Transmission) percentage of 48%, and a SHC (Solar Heat Gain Coefficient) factor of 0.42.

Aerogel is available on both curb-mount and self-flashed units. The SunWeld aerogel unit meets the most rigorous thermal requirements without sacrificing a high level of diffused visible light.

Carlisle has added a highly reflective skylight glazing that utilizes a solar heat-blocking coating applied to various glazing substrates in daylighting applications. This high-performance, spectrally selective Low-E coating has long been limited to glass applications, but can now be applied to plastic flat sheets prior to the thermoforming process.

This coating will transmit between 30% and 70% visible light, while filtering out 50% to 95% of the infrared light spectrum. It also blocks 99.9% of UV light and prevents the fading of fabrics and furniture below the skylight.

This high-performance glazing has a number of key benefits, including:

  • Reduced cooling loads and costs>
  • Allows for smaller HVAC equipment while also increasing life span
  • Reduced peak demand and associated charges on hot sunny days
  • Meets state and local mandates for energy efficient skylights
