FX Fixed Skylights
Predominately used in overhead applications to allow
light into a room where ventilation is not required, fixed skylights
are designed to sit deeper in the roof for improved insulation
and a lower profile on the roofline.
FV Opening Skylights
Great for providing natural light and ventilation,
the manual opening skylight comes complete with a factory fitted
insect screen that can be easily removed for cleaning purposes.
Opening Skylights can be operated by a telescopic control rod when
out-of-reach, or a small crank handle for within reach applications.
Fakro Opeing Skylights allow hot air to escape whilst fresh, subtle
breezes flow into the home, filling the room with additional light,
minimising the need for artificial lighting and electric air-conditioners.
FVE Electric Opening Skylights
|Installing Electric Skylights into your home is now
so much more affordable with the new Fakro Electric Opening Skylight.
This beautifully crafted product has been designed so it can be
easily operated with a remote control from the comfort of your living
room chair. The 24V motor and transformer are cleverly concealed
by a white cover on the bottom of the skylight frame to attractively
suit most home or office building decors.
Built-in rain sensors will automatically close the skylight once
rain is detected and blinds (see accessories below) can also be
installed onto the FVE and operated by the same remote control.
The FVE is supplied with an insect screen which for
safety reasons must be installed to operate the skylight and blinds.
Installation of the FVE is also straight-forward as it has been
designed with a six metre cable and three pin plug that can be connected
to a 230V power outlet inside the roof.
that make Fakro Skylights the best!
All Fakro Skylights have highly energy efficient Insulating Glass Units
and are made from high quality Nordic pine, which are arguably the best
on the market.
- Exterior toughened 4mm safety glass for strength and durability
- Argon gas injected for increased thermal performance (14mm
- Low-E coating to reduce solar heat gain
- Laminated safety glass for strength and maximum protection
- Double thickness (0.76mm) laminating interlayer for extra safety
and UV protection
Combined, these features not only provide superior safety and energy
efficiency, but also result in reduced fading, excellent sound insulation
ratings and greater durability.
- Wide, thick Nordic pine timber frames provide maximum stability to
better resist warping and improve the long term integrity of the skylight.
- All timber components are placed in an autoclave and vacuum impregnated
with preservative that reaches deep within the timber structure to prevent
mould or moisture build-up, compared to surface applied preservatives
on some other skylights.
- All timber surfaces are fully factory sealed with two coats of clear
based lacquer to resist absorption of moisture and subsequent swelling
- The UV protected lacquer provides a premium longer lasting finish,
removes the need for expensive onsite finishing costs and allows the
wood to be easily cleaned of finger marks after installation.
- The lacquered timber frame is fitted with condensation gaskets to
ensure all moisture is directed externally for superior sealing.
Combined, these features reduce the level of maintenance required and
extend the life and appearance of the skylight.
Skylights Tested and Approved
Fakro Skylights have been subjected to Cyclonic and Non Cyclonic Testing
in a NATA (National Association of Testing Authorities) accredited laboratory.
Both the Fakro Fixed Skylight and Openable Skylight passed the test requirements
of Australian Standard AS4285-1995, Skylights, for Resistance to Wind
Pressure for Cyclone and Non-Cyclon Regions and the BCA's-1995.
Fakro Skylights have been tested for airborne sound insulation and achieved
high level ratings of 36db's for Opening Skylights and 35db's for Fixed
The FVE Opening Skylight has passed cyclic testing of 10,000 open/close
cycles plus an additional 5,000 cycles with extra weight placed on the
sash of 12kgs (snow load). This works out to be approximately 41 years
of opening and closing the skylight once a day.
Concentrated Load Tests
Fakro Opening Skylights have passed concentrated load tests of 1.1kN
as per the default requirements of AS4285-1995.
Your roofing professional will be able to advise you on a suitable
flashing for your Fakro Skylight which are described in detail below.
Constructed from polyester coated aluminium and malleable metal,
Fakro Flashing Kits provide an unobtrusive and enduring water-tight
The flashings have passed stringent Australian water tightness
tests at 15, 27, 45, and 60 degrees. Skylights using correctly installed
Breezway Fakro Flashings comply with the structural requirements
of AS4285 (skylights).
Fakro Skyights have two main flashing types:
- EH - used in applications where the skylight is fitted in high-profiled
roofing materials such as tiles (up to 90mm profile height) or corrugated
metal roof sheeting. Not recommended for wide span high-profile roof
decking with rollformed ridges of 35mm or greater, as custom flashing
would be required.
- EL - allows skylights to be flashed with thin, flat roofing materials
such as slate or shingles.
|Skylights require a roof pitch between 15 and 60 degrees. Custom
made flashings which pitch the skylights at 15 degrees or more may
be necessary on lower (flatter) roof pitches.
The use of Fakro Skylights in roof pitches above 60 degrees is
not recommended and the manufacturers warranty is voided in such
