Things, you should to know about FAKRO products
Thermal Insulation – lower utility bills
One of the most important thing during the design process of skylights is energy saving. Use of Energy Star compliant glass, allows to keep the heat outside during the summertime and inside during the wintertime. It allows to save on energy used for airconditioning in summer, and heating during the winter.
Many windows use metallic spacers to separate panes and these can encourage condensation to form by forming a cold ‘bridge’ between them. By contrast, FAKRO uses warm spacers in order to ensure that this otherwise common problem does not affect our products.
Thick, wooden skylight frame is the best insulator between the inside of the building the outside. Installation screws hidden inside the frame, do not increase the phenomenon of thermal bridges, that might be caused by metal flanges attached around the frame.
Perimeter gasket underneath the frame, insulates additionally the joint between the skylights frame and the roof decking. Another feature increasing the insulation properties of FAKRO skylights.
Roof windows ahead of their time
FAKRO has been demonstrating its commitment to producing pioneering, high quality products for over twenty years.
By innovating we have continued to design products which became the industry standard and make people ask for them by name. In effect, we have consistently brought the future into the present day. When designing new roof windows, we take account of every conceivable factor which might affect a user. FAKRO roof windows have been designed not only for comfort and ease of use but style and functional efficiency.
FAKRO designs provide a larger glazing area and have made our windows the most efficient in terms of provision of natural daylight. In addition to greatly enhancing the loft space environment, innovative aspects of our windows such as an automatic air inlet ensure that the optimum level of fresh air is provided without unnecessary heat loss. The pioneering topSafe® system greatly increased the standard of burglary resistance while the use of environmentally sustainable technologies has enabled us to create the most thermally efficient roof window in the world, the FTT U8 Thermo.
This combines an exceptionally low overall U-value with the use of eco-friendly insulation, and air tight flashing.
