Flame-Resistant Skylight Introduced by VELUX
VELUX introduced their latest Sun Tunnel skylight series to meet the changes in the wildland-urban interface (WUI) zone and Class A burning brand code standards.
The TZR and TZRL Wildfire Glass Curb-Mount Sun Tunnel Skylights reach high-level fire resistance because of its features such as:
- Flame-resistant construction
- Ignition-resistant tempered diamond wire glass in the standard panel
VELUX mentioned that approximately 44 million homes, or one-third of all homes in the country, are within WUI zones.
This is where residential development are near undeveloped wild lands prone to fires.
The latest Sun Tunnels integrate a 14-inch fixed curb-mounted skylight and an adapter for a standard 14-inch reflective aluminum tunnel.
The TZR 014 model is made for tile roofs but doesn’t come with a flashing kit.
Customers can buy an ECW high-profile tile flashing kit separately.
The TZRL 014 is designed for shingle roofs and comes with an adhesive underlayment and shingle roof flashing kit.
“The ignition-resistant wire glass on the new Sun Tunnel is designed to prevent the glass from dropping to the floor and igniting a fire inside the home,” says Ross Vandermark, director of national product management for VELUX North America.
“It is a prime option for homes in WUI zones as flame-resistant construction can help preserve property.”
Both products come with:
- 64 inches of tunnel material
- Two 12-inch
- 45-degree elbows
- 16-inch top collar
