Skyco Skylights can now add Factory Mutual FM Approval to its line of 4×8 industrial skylight.

FM Approvals is a third-party certification and approval of commercial and industrial products for property loss prevention purpose. Their certification assures building owners that Skyco Skylights’ line of 4×8 industrial skylights have been objectively tested and have met or exceeded the standard for quality, performance and reliability for commercial and industrial facilities.
 
“As we continue to grow our national and international presence, FM is a building block necessary in certain specifications. FM Approval is a certification of the quality and performance of our industrial skylights,” explains Skyco Skylights CEO, Ryan Marshall. “We have received support in the Southwestern markets and the FM Approval certification allows us to offer our industrial skylights to markets globally.”
 
The design enabled Skyco Skylights FM Approved skylight to meet a Severe (S) Hail Rating with 2.0 in diameter ice balls, the highest rating available, and a 195 psf high-performance wind uplift rating.
 
Marshall says, “This opens another opportunity for building owners seeking compliance, safety and performance for their buildings when it comes to daylighting products.”
