purpose of flashings

Flashings are essential for the correct installation of skylights.
Precisely designed flashing details ensure a durable and neat fit with the used roofing material. The purpose of flashing is to ensure good drainage away from the window and to provide protection from the elements.

As there are many roofing materials available, Fakro offers a range of flashing solutions.

All flashings are manufactured using aluminum as standard, permanently protected with a polyester varnish. The standard colour is brown RAL 7022, which matches well with most roofing finishes.


Types of Flashing

Fakro skylights flashings are categorized according to roof material and application. Standard flashings are intended for the most common types of roof covering;

For flat roofing materials like: shingles, flat tiles, slates we recommend flashings which are called EL or ELA. EL flashing is for use with fixed skylights (FX), and ELA is for use with venting skylights (FV, FVE). ELN flashing is for use with FPL roof windows. For profiled roofing materials, we recommend flashings which are called EH, EHA, EHN.  EH is for use with fixed skylights (FX), and EHA is for use with venting skylights (FV, FVE), EHN is for use with FPL pivoting roof windows.
