U.S. Daylight’s Photo voltaic Attic Fan and Skylight Tube ― Stronger Than Hurricanes
… the Florida Department of Community Affairs has approved the Solar Attic Fan and the Skylight Tube for Florida’s severe weather conditions and has confirmed compliance with Florida building regulations.

Florida often receives the brutal force of the storms coming from the Atlantic, from hurricanes to severe storms. Over the years the state of Florida has revised and improved its building codes to protect the property and lives of its residents, and to help homes survive in the face of these storms. The strict building codes require intensive testing to ensure that roof-mounted objects remain intact during extreme winds, to protect the interior of the home, and to prevent missiles from being airborne that can damage other objects.
The US Sunlight Corporation recognized the need for these building codes and put the Solar Attic Fan and Skylight Tube to the test. After intensive testing required by the state of Florida, the Florida Department of Community Affairs approved the Solar Attic Fan and Skylight Tube for Florida’s severe weather conditions and confirmed compliance with Florida building codes.
The tests require the Solar Attic Fan and Skylight Tube to withstand the wind, air pressure, and risk of water infiltration associated with the most devastating hurricane conditions. The Solar Attic Fan and Skylight Tube not only met the Florida building code requirements, they also exceeded expectations. In particular, both the Solar Attic Fan and Skylight Tube met the load requirement at 180 psf (pounds per square foot) and showed no structural damage up to a size of 360 psf. These tests confirm that the Solar Attic Fan and Skylight Tube can withstand pressure loads greater than one Category 5 hurricane. At this point the test was simply concluded as “passed”. US Sunlight is proud to announce that the Solar Attic Fan and Skylight Tube have been designed, tested and approved for severe weather.
