  • VISIBLE ELEGANCE, SUPREME PERFORMANCE

    The profiles in this range have been designed solely for roof glazing, offering 3-35 degrees of roof pitch and providing a complete thermally broken structure when complete. The British Board of Agreement tested the roof system and have indicated that the roof will have a life expectancy of at least 25 years.

    FRAME CONSTRUCTION

    Framework consists of a high tensile aluminium (Alloy 6063 T6 to BS 1474 :1987) box section 40mm wide by 68mm, 81mm or 97mm in depth, giving the options of profiles to suit larger spans. The thermal break comes in the form of a PVCu extension adaptor connected to the main rafter box section, which is designed to receive an aluminium exterior cover cap.

    PERFORMANCE

    Glazing is secured by a snap on exterior cover cap and pressure plate, providing a continuous pressure seal against the glazing (uplift tested to 1320 pascals). Skyline roof's have been engineered to comply with severe weather ratings (Wind loads 1.32 Kn/m2 and snow loads 1.0 Kn/m2). BBA test results indicate that the U value for Skyline's thermally broken rafter is 1.5W/m2K and the structure when finished using standard planitherm double glazed units will have a U value of approximately 1.3 W/m2K. All double glazing is Kite marked toughened or laminated safety glass to BS 6206 :1981 with a class 0 fire rating.

  • DRAINAGE

    Secondary drainage channels have been designed into the PVCu thermal break which allows drainage channels to run over the bottom ringbeam, providing a unique, but effective way of draining the roof system. (Water BBA test pressure 300 pascals). The main rafters span from ring beam sections to ridge or valley sections using load bearing brackets tested to 20Kn.

    FINISH

    Aluminium exterior cover caps can be powder coated to any RAL colour, providing a durable and attractive roof finish, and it is possible to have an inner framework finished in a different RAL colour to that which is outside. All other aluminium extrusions are finished in a polyester powder coating to BS 6496 and is available in a range of RAL colours.

    GLAZING

    Double glazed or triple glazed units rest on an extruded EPDM gasket and are held into position by a pressure plate and aluminium exterior cover cap. Units are be installed in accordance with BS 6262 :1982, BS 8000, Part 7 : 1990 and to the quality standards set out in the GGF glazing guidelines. All Skyline roofs are produced in line with BS EN ISO 9001 :2000 quality control conditions and are BBA tested to market leading standards.
