Bilco enhanced performance roof hatch – September 2011

October 20, 2011 - The Bilco Company claims its enhanced-performance roof hatch is more than 48% more energy-efficient than standard roof hatches. Describing it as an ideal fit for buildings seeking a LEED certification and those located in areas with extreme temperature conditions, it offers a cover and curb that are fully insulated with a 2-inch polyisocyanurate thermal insulation board. This insulation has an R-value of 12. According to Bilco, the cover also features an EPDM finger-type gasket that ensures a positive seal with the curb to reduce air permeability and ensure energy performance.
