This makes Regent products ideally suited to the tradesman and handyman alike.
Regent Skylight Systems manufacture a large range of lead free skylights to suit all your natural lighting needs. The following information is to be used as a guide when selecting a skylight
Skylights with lead free flashings were satisfactory and compatible with zinc coated or galvanised roofing materials commonly used in the past. Times have changed and so have roofing materials, and lead must now be used with caution.
Lead is prone to cause corrosion and is incompatible with Zincalume and Colorbond roofs, valley gutters and down pipes now predominately used for new constructions
WHY LEAD FREE SKYLIGHTS?
Regent Lead Free Skylights are totally compatible with Zincalum and Colorbond roof components. As no lead is used, both a source of corrosion and the recognized potential health hazard associated with the use of lead is completely eliminated. This is of particular importance where run off water is collected from roofs for human consumption. The elimination of the source of corrosion will prevent premature and costly replacement. This coupled with the removal of possible health hazards, will result in increased customer satisfaction.
WHAT TYPE OF ROOF ARE SKYLIGHTS SUITABLE FOR?
Regent Skylights can be manufactured to suit all roof types. Our standard stock will suit popular types of roofs such as corrugated iron, tile, and metal deck. Our standard bases are press-formed from Zincalume, however a variety of other materials can be used (stainless steel, aluminum, copper or galvanised) for fabricated bases.
HOW ARE SKYLIGHTS MEASURED?
Skylight sizes are the internal dimension of the throat (daylight size).
WHAT TYPE OF DOMES ARE AVAILABLE?
All standard skylights can be fitted with a high impact acrylic, standard acrylic, or polycarbonate dome. All are available in opal, clear and grey tint.
CAN YOU GET VENTED SKYLIGHTS?
Skylights can be produced as vented or non-vented units. Vented skylightsare used in applications that require both light and ventilation, such as bathrooms, toilets and habitable rooms that must conform to the Building Code of Australia. Regent Skylights offers two types of vented units - the standard and the BCA - For data on relevant vent areas, refer to the opposite table. Mechanical ventilation options are also available.
WHAT TYPE OF LIGHT SHAFT IS USED?
The foremost function of light shafts is to channel the light made available by the skylight into the living areas throughout the void of the ceiling space. Regent Skylight Kits commonly use the highly reflective flexilight shaft. Not only does this type of shaft channel down the light, but because of its flexible nature, it can bypass obstructions in the roof cavity, saving structural work during installation
DO REGENT HAVE FIRE RESISTANT PRODUCTS?
Fire dampers are available as an accessory for fire rated installations. They are generally used in shopping centres, multiple dwelling units, and general commercial building applications to impede the spread of fire.
