It should be tempered and if so, then yes you can use the SYDS15. But sometimes skylights are tempered and laminated. If that is the case, then NO you shouldn't use the SYDS15. Look for the bug in the corner of the glass and it can identify what kind of glass you have.

What does it say to indicate laminated? Just that - laminated? or are there code letters?

It usually says "laminated" or something to that effect

Ok thanks, All I can read on the bug in the corner is Velux tempered glass. How do I know if its laminated?

The exterior lite is always tempered - it's the interior lite you need to be concerned about. Can you tell if the "tempered" writing is on the interior or the exterior lite? Sometimes we come across skylites without any writing - which I always then assume are laminated.

Ok Iwas seeing double for a minute and thats because the stamp is in the same spot on both windows. They both say Velux tempered glass with a bunch of aplhanumeric symbols as well. If it was laminated would it say?
