Important Flashing information for corrugated Iron roofs
All Skylights must be installed with mechanical flashings rather than silicon in New Zealand. It is therefor easiest when installing this product on corrugated iron roofs to lift up the flashing at the ridge of the roof and to secure the lumino flashing underneath this before resecuring the ridge flashing. If this is not possible then there are 2 options for installing into your corrugated roof.
1 - Get a piece of matching corrugated iron from your local longrun company and insert this under the ridge flashing to the point further down the roof where you would like to install the unit. Your lumino flashing can then be installed underneath this.
2 - Get a roofer, plumber or person with flashing experience to flash the unit for you using custom flashings and methods they recommend
Note: With the length of the silver tube provided it does give some flexibility as to where the lumino can be positioned although it always best to install as straight and short as possible.
