The Purpose of Flashings

 

The Purpose of FlashingsFlashings are important for the accurate installation of skylights.

Accurately designed flashing details guarantee a tough and neat fit with the used roofing material. The purpose of flashing kits is to warrant good drainage away from the window and to offer protection. Since there are many roofing types, FAKRO offers a range of flashing options to fit nearly all needs.

All flashings are factory-made using aluminum and permanently protected with a polyester varnish. The typical color is brown RAL 7022, which does not stick out much when used with most roofing types.

 

Types of Flashing

FAKRO skylight flashings are categorized according to roof material used and application. Typical flashings are made for the most common kinds of roof coverings.

 

For flat roofing materials like: shingles, flat tiles, slates we recommend flashings which are called EL or ELA. EL, EL-T Thermo flashing is for use with fixed skylights (FX), and ELA, ELA-T Thermo is used with venting skylights (FV, FVE). ELN flashing is used with FTP-V L3 and FPP-V L3 roof windows. ELW is used with egress roof windows only. For profiled roofing materials we recommend flashings called EH-A, EH-AT Thermo, EH/A-AT Thermo, EH/A-A, EHN and EHW. EH-A, EH-AT Thermo is for use with fixed skylights (FX), and EH/A-A, EH/A-AT Thermo is for use with venting skylights (FV, FVE), EHN is for use with FPP-V L3 and FTP-V L3 pivoting roof windows, and EHW is for use with egress windows only.
