ROOF APPLICATIONS:

Installation factors the Roofing Doctor will consider, include the roof location, interior placement and facing direction for the SUN TUNNEL™ skylight.  There are different models to suit various situations.  Either a Rigid or Flexible version of SUN TUNNEL™ skylight may be the recommendation made by the Roofing Doctor.

The 'RIGID' versions come in two models TMR & TGR. Both models share the following features / characteristics:

  • Domes: Come in standard acrylic, or are available in high-impact polycarbonate, for hurricane-prone areas.
  • Dual Diffuser: Both TMR & TGR VELUX SUN TUNNEL™ skylight feature a dual diffuser, which reduces the chance of condensation and increases energy efficiency, while providing even light distribution through a frosted diffuser.
  • Ceiling Frame: The TMR and TGR skylights come with a pre-assembled ceiling ring and paintable ceiling trim ring, to complete any look.
  • Integrated Flashing System: Both SUN TUNNEL™ skylight models are designed for low profile roofing materials, such as shingles and shakes. Tile flashing is also available.
  • Available Sizes: TMR & TGR VELUX SUN TUNNEL™ skylights come in 10-inch and 14-inch sizes, both designed for use with 16-inch center framing.
