AAMA releases new guideline for installing preassembled unit skylights onto a roof

The American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA) has published AAMA 1607, “Voluntary Installation Guidelines for Unit Skylights." This document provides a guideline for installing pre-assembled unit skylights onto a roof.

The AAMA 1607 document is the first and only comprehensive unit skylight installation guideline ever produced,” says Bob Sampson (RCS Consulting), chair of the AAMA 1607 Update Task Group. “This outlines the best practices for a full range of roofing systems and product designs.It provides the architect, general contractor and roofing contractor with the best information to ensure a well detailed and executed installation. This can have a great effect on impacting the successful application of skylights on many projects in the future.”

The intent of this standard is to educate by providing clear illustrations and concise commentary on the principles involved to facilitate effective installation practice, when the unit manufacturer has not provided such detail in their instructions. Proper preparations and roof safety also are addressed within the standard.

AAMA 1607, along with other AAMA documents, may be purchased from AAMA’s Publication store.
