A: Please choose the TMR 010 0000G Sun Tunnel with the pitched aluminum flashing for this application. Also send an email to: email@example.com for the additional installation instructions needed for a metal roof application.
A: The manufacturer's warranty becomes void on installations of less than 14 pitch. That said, if you are willing to accept the risk of water damage, you can achieve the desired result by rotating the tunnel segments. This may result in a slightly angled approach to the roof.
A: VELUX has a different Sun Tunnel Skylight that will work on a lower sloped roof. It is curb mounted and available in a 14 inch diameter. Please check it out on the Home Depot website: https://www.homedepot.com/p/205614065
A: The manufacturer does not recommend installing on a pitch less than 14, the warranty will become void. That said, if you are willing to accept the risk of having water damage, you can adjust the rotation of the tunnel segments to achieve the desired pitch.
A: For areas that are Hurricane prone the impact Polycarbonate dome is better suited than a standard Acrylic dome. Please reach out to VELUX direct at 1-800-888-3589 with further questions.
A: No clue. It will handle 45 below zero several feet of snow. I don't see how the flashing would leak unless the depth of water gets over maybe 3 inches, but the plastic cap could get broken or maybe knoçked off of the tubing. This is not a heavy duty item, so I don't think I would trust it where heavy objects are flying around.
A: Nothing is hurricane-proof, but to meet building code in those areas, you will want to choose a Sun Tunnel Skylight with an Impact Rated (polycarbonate) dome like the TMR 010 1000SL as found here: https://www.homedepot.com/p/306352383 which is also eligible for a 30% Federal Tax Credit.
A: VELUX offers an Energy Kit (ZTC) which is designed to increase the efficiency of the VELUX Sun Tunnel Skylight while enabling it to be Energy Star certified. Please visit the Millwork desk at your local Home Depot store to obtain a special order quote.
