Upstands

The Auflam AW60 Skylight system is designed to be installed onto pre-formed upstands which provide the structural, weathering & fire rated elements required. The upstand can be constructed of formed timber, metal or concrete substrate, depending on the roofing application & location.

Both flat or conventional roofing systems can be constructed & require a minimum 3° pitch (fall) to ensure water egress through the AW60 framing system.

The upstand kerb dimensions (length X, width Y, height Z) are determined by the AW60 Skylight dimensions selected & will allow the AW60 to be simply installed as per the specified methodology & FRL rating matched to the product supplied.

Installation

When installing in a masonry wall the opening needs to be 20-30mm wider and 20-30mm longer than the AW60 frame.

The gap between the AW60 frame and the masonry wall is to be fire stopped with mineral wool (100kg/m³) and silicone sealant.
