“The Difference You Can’t See”
Indiana Skylights Marquis skylight with Sun Wise glass incorporates Cardinal Glass Industries’ LoE2-240 insulated glass and superior performance characteristics. The performance chart below clearly shows “the difference you can’t see.” The low-emittance LoE2-240 coating on the #2 surface provides the best performance ratings for Light Transmittance, Solar Heat Gain, U-Factor and Fading Transmission. Indiana Skylights Marquis skylight comes with the Sun Wise glass by Cardinal Glass Industries and three glazing options. Check your local building codes and choose Tempered LoE2, Laminated LoE2 or High Impact LoE2 (hurricane).
Indiana Skylights Marquis Skylight with Impact Glass has survived wind gusts in excess of 200 mph and has
a 70-design pressure.
Advanced Technology for Longer Life
Available in three models, eight standard sizes and three glazing options, the Marquis Series features Sun Wise tempered high performance insulating glass with the revolutionary Cardinal LoE2-240 coating.
In 1978, Cardinal IG became the first manufacturer to produce dual-seal silicone IG units, drastically reducing IG failures. Cardinal IG units produced in 1978 with dual-seal silicone reported a cumulative failure rate of just one percent over 20 years. Contrasted with Cardinal’s 1976 polysulfide dual-sealed IG units, dual-seal silicone reduced IG failures by more than 85%.
In 1993, Cardinal introduced XL Edge, a revolutionary IG unit combining a dual-seal silicone system with patented stainless steel—rather than aluminum—spacers. XL Edge is the most durable IG unit available today. Based on a decade’s worth of experience, we project that the failure rate for Cardinal IG with XL Edge over 20 years will be well below 0.5 percent.
Indiana Skylights Sentry Series Feature Palsun™
Co-Extruded Polycarbonate Plastic Sheet
Indiana Skylights Sentry skylights are durable, maintenance-free and a low-cost alternative to
glass skylights. Sized to fit standard U.S. truss and rafter framing, these skylights feature a low-profile double dome of strong, top-quality co-extruded polycarbonate. The outer dome is grey, while the inner panel is available in clear or diffused for a softer light. Single and triple-dome panels are also available. Our polycarbonate glazing is 30 times more impact resistant than acrylic skylights, 250 times more impact resistant than glass, and resists temperature extremes from –60° below zero to +250°.
Indiana Skylights Sentry skylights with Palsun™ polycarbonate plastic by Palram Industries, LTD., provides the high impact strength of polycarbonate plus superior performance to protect against weathering. The Sentry skylight with Palsun™ is a co-extruded process, which significantly increases the life of the skylight. The chart below compares Palsun co-extruded polycarbonate plastic sheet to polycarbonate sheet that is not co-extruded. The co-extruded material changes in optical properties are not perceptible to the naked eye and truly is “the difference you can’t see.”
