The Fakro FTT U8 Thermo roof window is quadruple-glazed, with a U-value of 0.58 W/m2K, is supplied with thermal flashing, vapour permeable underlay collar and airtight interior flashing.
Its glazing unit is set in a sash frame with warm spacing between panes to reduce potential for thermal bridging while TPE seals retain their flexibility, providing 38 dB acoustic performance and airtightness to BS EN12207 Class 4.
The FTT U8 Thermo has a raised pivot point which enables the window to be positioned anywhere between 0deg and 45deg and uses topSafe hinge and lock reinforcement to lock the window either side of the frame using the operating handle in the base.
