What sets an industrial skylight apart from other skylights? SKYCO Skylights, industry leading skylight manufacturer out of Costa Mesa, CA, believes using the best material and innovative designs when building competitively priced natural lighting products is going to continue to set them apart from other manufacturers.

The skylight manufacturer committed to building its industrial skylights with a capped system, high strength polycarbonate dome and proprietary unique wave design to ensure the highest performance and durability. Capped industrial skylight systems are most revered for eliminating the common cracking that occurs in the domes of a capless system.

Building code compliance for skylight manufacturers is one of the most important accreditation to achieve. When specifying a skylight for new construction or re-roofing it’s paramount for the architects and roofers/contractors to be 100% sure they are using code compliant skylight models.

If the skylight is not a capped system issues of code compliance come into play. Currently, there are zero capless units that comply with ICC code requirements. In some cases, capless units have been misrepresented as ICC-ES listed when they in fact ARE NOT. A simple process to ensure compliance is requesting the ESR Number and conducting a quick google search. The skylight should align with all the features listed to that number.

Industrial Skylights, manufactured by SKYCO Skylights have an evaluation report ESR#3837 from ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), providing evidence that SKYCO Skylights industrial skylight, as a curb mounted, self-flashing and with a Vortex louvered curb, meets code requirements. Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers, designers and others utilize ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving industrial skylights in construction projects under the International Building Code (IBC)

ICC-ES President Shahin Moinian explains why ICC-ES Evaluation Reports are so important. “SKYCO Skylights can reference the evaluation report to ensure building code officials and the building industry that the product meets I-Code requirements,” Moinian said. “Building departments have a long history of using evaluation reports, and ICC-ES operates as a technical resource with the highest quality of product review for the building department. Final approval of building products is always in the hands of the local regulatory agency.”

ICC-ES thoroughly examined SKYCO Skylights product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors to ensure the product is code-compliant. “SKYCO Skylights set out from day one to provide the finest quality skylights in the marketplace, and to that end, obtaining our ICC-ES Report is another important step in our effort to provide a verified and documented level of quality, which quickly allows acceptance and approval by Architects and Building Code Officials” stated Bob Marshall, President of SKYCO Skylights.

ICC-ES Evaluation Reports (ESRs), Building Product Listings and PMG Listings provide evidence that products and systems meet requirements of codes and technical standards. Reports from both listing programs are now accepted in Canada. International Code Council For more information, please visit http://www.icc-es.org.
