Vela series domes are manufactured by thermoforming first quality polycarbonate (PC) sheets, in clear transparent or opal white colour, UV rays protected in order to guarantee longer duration against yellowing, with reaction to fire classification B-s1-d0 according to EN 13501-1 Standard.
In addition to robustness, light diffusion and thermal insulation, they have an excellent impact behaviour and guarantee an high resistance to heat in all those situations where the safety of people and things is a determinant factor which cannot be ignored.
Their peculiar shape, which ensures strength and a better light output, makes our domes a really effective system of natural zenithal lighting.
The availability of different solutions in single, double and triple skin allows to install the domes in the most different environmental conditions.
Thanks to this range of solutions, we can solve the problem of thermal insulation that is becoming more and more important in terms of energy saving. This is one of the reasons that led CAODURO® to create new models: double skin M125 FX and triple skin M126 FX, which are realized with external and intermediate skin made of thermoformed solid polycarbonate sheet, internal skin made of flat alveolar polycarbonate sheet.




115 FX - single skin
125 FX - double skin
126 FX - triple skin
M125 FX - double skin
M126 FX - triple skin

Thermal trasmittance values up to U=1,1 W/m²K

The fastenings are made with standard clamps, which offer the maximum guarantee to water tightness and thermal expansion.

Domes made with polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) sheets, Climate Control PC (with a better UV rays protection factor) or different coloration sheets are also available upon request and depending on the quantities.

Our domes can be installed on metallic upstandsmetallic upstands for continuous ventilation, standard GFRP monobloc upstands, GFRP monobloc upstands with extractors, Onda Europa GFRP monobloc upstands, GFRP monobloc upstands on corrugated roofing sheets, GFRP monobloc upstands for curved sandwich panels, concrete or wooden upstands (not supplied by us).
Each aluminium frame can be standard or provided with low thermal transmittance profile BT. It is suitable to be combined with manual opening device, electric opening device for daily ventilation, manhole opening device for roof access and eventually SMOKE OUT® for smoke and heat exhaust ventilation system installation.

Further accessories are anti-falling and anti-intrusion grids, sunshade sliding curtains, insect screens and our GUARDIAN detector for the automatic skylight’s closing in presence of wind or rain.
In order to get a correct installation, the domes need a perimeter support with thickness to the finished of any sheaths of 6.5 cm on concrete walls, wood, prefabricated glass fibre-reinforced plastic (GFRP) or metallic upstands.
Thanks to a wide range of accessories, our domes can be employed in private dwellings as well as in commercial and industrial buildings: a quality product guaranteed over time.
CAODURO® domes are manufactured and tested according to the following European Standard which requires CE marking: EN 1873 Prefabricated accessories for roofing – Individual rooflights of plastics – Product specification and test methods.
