Installation: Installed by slipping
HeatBlocker over the skylight and securing the elastic cord either on or under the skylight
frame. No drawing or tying of the elastic cord is necessary. During the winter months, HeatBlocker can
be removed for access to solar heat. Notice our product is easily installed on the outside of the skylights to prevent heat
from transferring through the lens into the living or work space below as opposed to skylight blinds that are installed on
the inside and allow heat to transfer through the skylight lens. Our product is a lot differnet than skylight blinds
that will not allow you to see through the skylight when the blinds are closed.
Here is what it looks like from the roof with a skylight
solar cover installed.
Below is what it looks like from inside. A customer
took the following pictures from different angles of the 90% block to show us what it looks like inside their home with a
skylight solar cover on one skylight and no skylight solar cover on a second skylight next to it. Notice how the glare
is reduced and it is much easier to see through the skylight when the sun is shining. Which would you rather have?
A fast and easy way to save on utility bills.
On rare occasions a
skylight frame may have very sharp corners that can poke a hole through the skirting material. This
is the reason we use the skirting material as it should not continue to tear if this happens. Very sharp corners may
be dulled with a file before installing the HeatBlocker to reduce the possibility of wearing a hole in the skirting
rare occasions a skylight frame may have knife edges. Knife edges are capable of cutting through the HeatBlocker material.
It is recommened to dull the knife edges of the frame prior to installing the HeatBlocker. This may be done with a file or
any other way you choose.
Please keep in mind one of he corners of the HeatBlocker is left open. This is by design and does not mean the
product has torn, ripped or come unsewn.
Normally, the HeatBlocker bungee system grips at the lip of the skylight frame. In rare instances a skylight may
not have a lip as the frame is flush with the box the skylight frame is mounted on. The HeatBlocker bungee
system is strong enough to grip around the frame if there is not a lip. In this case, do not measure to the roof for
your lip measurement. The lip measurmet should be to the depth of the skylight frame.
