Wood Deck Mount (CVS) – Operable Manual

The CVS is a premium deck mounted venting skylight which includes a Douglas Fir curb, PVC sash, EPDM gasket, and extruded aluminum retaining frame. The extruded fusion welded vinyl (PVC) base frame includes a high capacity, four sided condensation gutter to eliminate water stains on the interior light well. The multi chambered vinyl base frame is thermally broken, preventing the passage of cold air from the exterior to the interior light shaft. The EPDM fusion welded gasket inserts into the wood base and provides a weathertight seal between sash and wood curb while positioning the flashing.
