Polycarbonate Skylight & Dome
Domed skylights are manufactured using a thermoforming process. The raw material is heated within an oven and when it reaches the correct temperature the polycarbonate is positioned on to a former. It is the former that clamps the edges of the polycarbonate into position and then compressed air blows the dome into its shape. The former also moulds the xing ange & weather edge too.
A Domed Skylight will be made to the size of the former and this will conrm the Clear Light size and the Overall size too. The Clear light size is normally the amount of light area you will see when you look up at the Domed Skylight when it is tted on to the roof and the Overall Size is the maximum size the unit will t to on a pre-made or purchased up stand or builder’s kerb
