CFP Flat Roof Skylight
CFP Flat roof skylight
Toronto & GTA
For so long, owners of homes or offices with flat rooms wished for a skylight specifically designed for them. Well, thanks to the VELUX CFP – Flat Roof Skylights, their wishes have come through.
Generally, skylights are roofing elements that will complement and enhance the beauty and value of your home. You can think of them as transparent doorways to nature. With skylights, you get to fill your home with evenly distributed natural light and ventilate your home automatically or manually.
Until now, skylights were only installable in homes and offices with elevated roofs. However, the innovation of CFP – Flat Roof Skylights now makes it possible for individuals with flat or low-pitched roofs to enjoy the skylight experience. They are especially recommended for roofs with a 0-15° pitch.
Flat roof skylights do not sacrifice quality or functionality to fit on flat roofs, courtesy of their amazing design. In fact, they have a few perks up their sleeves too.
Key features of CFP – Flat Roof Skylights
- Flat roof skylights typically come with a CurveTech Glass cover or a Polycarbonate dome. The CurverTech glass cover is basically curved tempered glass, which aids water dispersion off the surface. Plus, it is scratch-proof and highly leak-resistant. The Polycarbonate dome on the other hand is highly resistant to extreme weather conditions and has edge-to-edge counter flashing that makes it leak-proof.
- They have a maintenance-free PVC curb with polystyrene insulation and lacquered aluminum cladding, meaning they require little to no maintenance. In addition to this, they also possess a double-glazed low-energy pane that makes them highly energy-efficient (heat never escapes unless you say so!)
- A unique design and streamlined appearance that makes them great options for almost any flat-roofed homes or office buildings.
- They have excellent external noise-suppression capabilities, a function of the glass domes.
- Drywall groove for interior finish
- AA fire rated.
- The smooth coating on the glass surface makes them easy to clean.
- They are available in 5 sizes for CurveTech glass and 6 sizes for polycarbonate domes
- They come in circular and rectangular shapes.
