Solatube International Inc. has announced the launch of a new commercial and residential product innovation designed to meet the increasing Wildland-Urban Interface (WUI) zone code requirements across the United States. Featuring a multi-pane glass disk with a steel ring, the new Solatube Rooftop Fire Glazing accessory meets strict ANSI Z97.1 safety glazing requirements to deliver a flame-resistant tubular skylight.
Made with a fully tempered top layer and two layers of glass laminated with a layer of PVB, the new Solatube Rooftop Fire Glazing accessory prevents the skylight glass from dropping to the floor and igniting a fire inside the building. When used in conjunction with the flame-resistant Solatube Dome Edge Protection Band, the Solatube Rooftop Fire Glazing accessory meets the prescriptive building code requirements for areas located in high fire areas and Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) zones.
The Solatube Rooftop Fire Glazing is available for the the residential 160 DS and 290 DS models and the commercial SolaMaster Series 300 DS, 330 DS and 750 DS models.
