Flashings (sold separately)
A flashing is an essential element allowing correct installation of a roof window in the roof slope. The precisely designed systemic elements of the flashing enable tight and durable integration of the window with roofing. It is very important as the main task of the flashing is to drain water and snow away from the window and protect it against the wind. The flashings are manufacture from aluminium sheet, coated with hard-wearing polyester lacquer. The basic colour is grey – brown (RAL 7022), thanks to which windows go well with standard colours of roofing materials.
Flashings are used for connecting the windows with roofing and it is the roofing which decides about their selection.
