Fakro® FX Fixed Skylights
fakro fx fix skylight

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.



Fakro® FV Opening Skylights
fakro fv opening skylight

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.

Fakro® FVE Electric Opening Skylights
fakro fve electric opening skylight
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.


Features 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.

Insulated Glazing Unit

  1. Exterior toughened 4mm safety glass for strength and durability
  2. Argon gas injected for increased thermal performance (14mm airspace)
  3. Low-E coating to reduce solar heat gain
  4. Laminated safety glass for strength and maximum protection from fading
  5. 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.

Timber Construction

  • 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 or cracking.
  • 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

Cyclone Ratings

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.

Acoustic Insulation

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 Skylights.

Cyclic Tests

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.

Skylight Flashing

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 fit.

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 applications.
