Ag-CoDesigned to weather any challenge, cupolas top off a building with style. Ag-Co cupolas are durable, high-density polyethylene that is UV inhibited, never rust or decay, are maintenance free and retain their original appearance for a lifetime. They combine the rigidity of polyethylene with the convenience of lightweight construction for quick installation.

An optional photo-sensor light kit illuminates cupolas with a soft glow at night.
