Fakro fixed skylights from The Attic Group of Australia are predominately used in overhead applications to allow light into a room. They are designed to sit very deep in the roof and they therefore have a very low and unobtrusive profile. This also helps improve insulation.
The exterior of Fakro fixed skylights has been clad with aluminium cappings which are coated with UV and weather resistant polyester paint for longevity. There is also a butyl strip to hold down the flashing apron on the roof to guard against wind driven rain and storms.
These fixed skylights also feature premium Nordic pine. They have wide, thick frames to prevent warping or twisting. The timber has been laminated for increased strength and stability. And it has been vacuum impregnated with preservative and double lacquered for a stylish look and for added durability.
The lacquered Nordic pine frame of the fixed skylights has condensation gaskets for draining moisture to the building’s exterior.
