Fakro fixed skylights are a great way to brighten up almost any room in your home. This ENERGY STAR deck mounted skylight features bracket-free, one-person installation that is suitable for roof pitches between 15 to 85 degrees. A perimeter seal lines the solid wooden frame providing a "warmer" roof boarding-skylight frame joint. Once in the rough opening 4 to 6 screws (included) secure the skylight to the roof deck followed by your trusted brand of water and ice shield (required and sold separately) and finished with Fakro step or high profile flashing (required and sold separately). The single chamber glass panes are filled with argon gas and feature a Low-E coating to help filter UV rays. The finished pinewood interior is pressure-treated and double coated with a clear acrylic lacquer. A template and installation hardware are included. Blinds and other Fakro accessories are available.

Customer Reviews48-inch x 46-inch Fakro FX Fixed Skylight - ENERGY STAR® is rated out of 5 by 1.Rated 4 out of 5 by Jake from Conflicted I have put in a few Velux skylights, but I thought I would give Fakro a try. The interior finish is much nicer than Velux. Solid thick un finger jointed frames, perfect straight grain fir, really nice, and easily 2x thicker than Velux. Better condensation gutters. Better installation, complete with a sweet template to make cutting RO a breeze. Only reservation is the finish on the roof, not that anyone cares. There is a rubber Gasket on the bottom that looks like it is begging to be covered by a sheetmetal flashing, but fakro assured me it is to be exposed. So only downside to Velux is the finish on the roof. I will likely buy Fakro over Velux going forward, but we shall see how they hold up.Date published: 2015-09-29
