There are several mounted frame skylights models, allowing to have a wide variety of choices regarding the type of installation, the window size or even selecting a new model or not. Columbia offers different mounted frame skylight models of high-quality.
Several of them, such as VCM or OVCM models are made with an inner vinyl frame (PVC) as well as an outer strong and durable aluminum frame. The skylight is provided with a thermal barrier so the PVC frame can prevent air penetration from the outside inwards as well as the transfer of the heat. This is also the most recommended type of skylight due to its durability and its easier installation.
For larger models, thus requiring more rigidity and strength as the ATCM model or the AOF, the frame is rather made in extrusion of durable and waterproof aluminum with a frame base welded in aluminum extrusion with thermal break. The frame is rather made sustainable with a base of frame welded there héliarc of extrusion of aluminum with thermal break. Thus, the frame is just as resistant to air infiltration as a PVC frame, since there is no heat transfer.
Some models with aluminum frame, as the ACM model are not equipped with thermal break, meaning they allow the heat transfer. This type of model is thus only recommended for temperate climates or glazing uses such as in walkways, balconies and carport.
In any case, these models are available in several standard sizes and sometimes can be customized. Thus there is certainly a model to suit your needs. In addition, all models can be manufactured with a simple, double or triple glazing of glass, acrylic or polycarbonate, depending on whether your roof is flat or sloping.
