Technical Information

All Fabtec skylights are manufactured from high grade 1050H14 aluminium sheet, cut and bent into the required profile. This allows us to manufacture skylights that are exactly right for the size required, and not 'best fit'. All the arches (or beams) are grade 6063T6.

Corners are welded together with the latest TIG welding equipment. Only when a skylight is too large to fit into a powder-coating oven will we use a large overlap plate to join straight sections. Where long beams or gutters are required to carry high loads, we use steel and bend to shape the exact profile best suited to do the job.

All steel components, if used, are sandblasted and powder coated for maximum corrosion resistance.

All our skylights are custom-made to any size, starting from 500mm to the size required. Smaller sizes are not as cost effective as the larger units. For example, a 600mm x 1200mm skylight might cost only 15% more than a 600mm x 900mm, even though is 30% bigger.

Where required for commercial buildings, we can advise on strength of materials, and wind loading suggestions to assist with engineering design calculations.
