High Impact Acrylic Dome
The Natural Light Tubular Skylight dome is constructed of high-impact UV stabilized acrylic that is thicker than many of our competitors. Unlike most of the competition, our low profile unit allows the skylight to blend seamlessly into the roof line. Most importantly, our dome is mounted in a stress absorbing seamless aluminum collar, which equalizes the pressure caused by expansion and contraction due to temperature fluctuations. Many of our competitors attach their dome directly to the flashing – doing so stresses the dome at the contact points and may cause the dome to crack and potentially leak.
Commercial Pure Grade Aluminum Flashing
The flashing is extremely important, as it is responsible for keeping your roof from leaking. It is exposed to the harsh effects of the environment on a daily basis. Our flashing is constructed of 1100 series, commercial pure grade aluminum with no seams, and its round shape minimizes damage to roof shingles and enables it to withstand the stresses of expansion and contraction due to the temperature variations. Many of our competitors use lower grade galvanized materials with tack welded or rolled seams – or even plastic! Our unique forward sloping flashing design limits the use of light robbing elbows that the competition uses in almost all applications. The flashing is available in unpainted aluminum or powder-coated black for both sloping and flat roofs.
Our Miro-Silver® light pipe is one of the best performing in the industry with 98% reflectivity. A comprehensive test has shown that our light pipes outperform other light pipes particularly during early morning and late afternoon when useable light is needed the most. Most of the competition uses lower grade light pipe, thinner gauge or less reflective. Our light pipe is assembled on-site with three securing methods ensuring a tight, dust free seal.
