AUBURN®

Auburn® Engineered and E+ skylights are designed and engineered for long-term performance, and make a great daylighting choice if you’re looking for the durability and longevity of glass, or simply enjoy dramatic views of the sky. They’re available in custom and pre-engineered configurations, and also offer mixed glazing options as they can also incorporate polycarbonate multi-wall and acrylic glazing as well as Guardian 275® translucent panels.

Auburn® systems aren’t designed to span the largest openings; they’re optimized for small and medium projects and are engineered to save time, money, and weight in your next daylighting project. Auburn® engineered skylights feature high-performance sealants, built-in water management, and time-proven EPDM gasketing to provide the ultimate protection: three-level redundancy to keep water out of your building. In addition, they are available in a wide variety of configurations, along with numerous glass and finish options.

While our standard Auburn® Engineered skylight line is perfect for many applications, in those situations where thermal performance is key, consider our Auburn® E+ line of glass skylights. Its newly designed framing system utilizes thermal caps and integrated insulation for better performance, and is compatible with a wide range of glass options. It’s simple – Auburn® E+ skylights give owners flexibility and durability in daylighting. And keep in mind that every Auburn® skylight is the product of hundreds of years of combined daylighting expertise, custom built to your specific requirements.

Here are just a few highlights of Auburn® E+ systems:

  • NEWLY DESIGNED FRAMING SYSTEM with thermal cap technology provides improved thermal performance & condensation resistance
  • INTEGRATED INSULATION in the system keeps the cold out
  • FLUSH GLAZED using structural silicone sealant joints to eliminate water damming while providing a clean, modern look
  • UNLIMITED PITCH CURB CONNECTION FEATURE that allows for easier installation TESTED to ASTM E283/330/331 standards to ensure performance
  • COMPATIBLE with numerous types and sizes of glass for a custom design that’s perfect for your specific application – contact us for more details

New Single Slope Skylights with Thermal Strut Technology

For smaller openings and standard sizes, consider our newly updated Auburn® Self-flashing Single Slope skylights, available in sizes up to 25 square feet, with pre-assembled options available for ease of installation and quick lead times. These new single slope skylights feature thermal strut technology in the framing, allowing for a versatile combination of strength and high thermal performance, including improved condensation resistance and U-factors over traditional aluminum framed systems.

No matter which option is right for you – custom or pre-engineered – Auburn® skylights are a smart choice to solve your daylighting challenges. Other benefits include:

  • Low initial cost and long-term energy savings.
  • Possible LEED® credit opportunities for both new construction and existing buildings.
  • High-performance gaskets and sealants provide peace of mind and long-term performance.
  • Auburn® Engineered custom systems feature universal “slope adapters” fit all standard rafters, creating precise slope control.
  • Auburn® Engineered custom systems come standard with tubular rafters that frequently eliminate the need for support tubes.
  • Guaranteed against defective materials and construction for one year from date of purchase (exclusions apply – see final warranty for details).

PERFORMANCE

Performance

Auburn® Engineered and E+ skylights are manufactured in a strictly controlled environment, designed to meet both our in-house quality policy and third-party performance guidelines. Our custom engineered skylights are designed to meet or exceed all applicable building codes and structural requirements and have the following minimum performance attributes:

  • Framework: All extruded aluminum shall be of the alloy 6063-T5/T6. The actual alloy, temper and thickness, however, shall be dependent upon the physical requirements of the particular loading and deflection, cross-sectional configuration, and required finish.
  • Glazing Strips: Engineered systems feature extruded 70± durometer EPDM material per ASTM C864.
  • Setting Blocks: Engineered systems feature extruded EPDM rubber formulated Type A 80± durometer
  • Fasteners: For exterior cap retainers on Engineered systems: ASTM A193B8 300 series stainless steel screws. For framework connections: ASTM B211 2024-T4 aluminum rivets, as required by connection.
  • Flashing: Standard flashing will be 5005-H34 or equivalent with a minimum thickness of .040.
  • Integral screw races are standard, providing superior anchorage and uniform load transfer
  • High-performance EPDM gaskets
  • Integral guttering for water and condensation control
  • Structural framing members optimized for L/175
    or L/240 deflection limits – lowering cost and weight
  • E+ systems feature an unlimited pitch curb connection that allows for easier assembly on-site
  • Engineered and manufactured using state-of-the-art technology for shorter lead times
  • Mixed glazed systems available including glass plus translucent panels or polycarbonate multi-wall
  • Finish:
    • Anodized Coatings:
      1. Architectural Class I clear anodized Type AA-M10C22 A41 (supersedes AAMA 607.1).
      2. Architectural Class I pigmented anodized Type AA-M10C22 A42 (supersedes AAMA 606.1).
    • Pigmented Organic Coatings: AAMA 2604 (supersedes AAMA 603.8).
    • High Performance Pigmented Organic Coatings: AAMA 2605 (supersedes AAMA 605.2).
