These skylights meet the original factory specs and give you a perfect fit when using the stock hardware. It is not surprising really because unlike any of the other offerings on sale in the UK they are made from the exact mould that was used to make all of the Westfalia skylights for the American market! We have handled some of the others and they are not the same shape and profile when you get to handle them. The only design difference between this skylight and the original is that this one is a single-pane unit. After looking at just how much area of the double glazed options is actually double glazed and bring into the mix you are sleeping in a canvas tent on your vans roof, the insulating properties of a double glazed unit is none existent when the sleeping in the roof.
These hand-crafted skylights feature:
- Top-quality materials that are more impact resistant than glass and built to withstand exposure to blazing sun, extreme cold, sudden temperature changes, and salt water spray.
- Unparalleled UV protection – absorbs more than 98% of the radiation in the UV range below 400 nanometers.
- Added protection for pop top roof — if subject to impact beyond the limit of its resistance, it will not shatter into small slivers but will break into comparatively large pieces that will reduce the impact to the pop top roof.
- Guaranteed fit (when installed according to manufacturer’s instructions)
- Superior insulation – its U-factor or overall co-efficient of heat transfer is 10% lower than glass.
- 10-year limited warranty on light transmission capabilities — guaranteed not to lose more than 3% of transmission over 10 years.
- Will not shrink with age
- Made in North America
- Lots of love for your Westy and you!
