Renovation skylight domes square: Roof superstructure unchanged

The essertop® repair kit is used for roof renovations where no additional thermal insulation is applied. Its large application range allows it to be fitted to nearly all existing on-site upstands (essertop® or third-party models).

Product


Renovation of nearly all makes of defective skylight domes

A special sealing tape prevents heat losses between the renovation frame and the old upstand. The renovation frame also provides an effective cover for the upper attachment point of the roofing membrane. Installation of the essertop skylight dome  is very easy and safe thanks to its factory pre-installed hinges. The esserprotect® multi point locking system and high quality EPDM frame seals guarantee a consistently excellent air seal between the renovation frame and the skylight dome. The fastening material (installation kit) is customised for each application.

Application:

  • Replacement of defective skylight domes of almost all makes (adapter function)
  • Effective coverage of the upper attachment point of the roofing membrane
