Flat Rooflights from Open Living

Rooflights are ideal whether you have an existing flat roof or as part of an extension or renovation project.

Advantages of Rooflights

If your home has a flat roof our range of rooflights offers an opportunity to put your otherwise stagnant flat roof to greater use.

The fitting of a rooflight to an existing roof is an excellent way to reduce your energy consumption by providing natural daylight instead of artificial light. This is useful in the winter months when the daylight hours are shorter.

For terraced houses, urban or other properties that are in close proximity to each other and generally overlooked, rooflights provide a solution as well. Rooms can still benefit from natural light without windows that others can peer into.

Features of our aluminium rooflights .

All our quality rooflights are manufactured from the latest thermally broken insulated aluminium. It is exceptionally strong, light, hardwearing and with a durable powder coated finish.

As standard our rooflights are provided with a 50mm Triple glazed unit. In addition it comprises soft coat low emissivity coating, an argon gas fill and manufactured from the very best toughened safety glass. It meets current European standards.

You can choose from clear, tinted, or a range of privacy glasses. The external face of the glass is specially coated protecting it from the glare and UV rays of the sun as well as having easy clean properties.

Toughened safety glass as standard to BS EN12150 we can also offer the inner pane of glass laminated for greater security or for use above swimming pools and child friendly areas.

The glass is coated with a durable easy clean coating to protect it from discolouration and promote self cleaning ability during rain fall, thus helping to reduce the manual cleaning process. Manual cleaning will still be required, especially if trees or traffic is close by but you can be assured that the glass will clean more easily than normal glass.

Delivery

All our products are delivered via our own fleet of company vans by our own specialist drivers who have many years of experience handling our glass products. For roofs ordered ready assembled and factory glazed, special consideration needs to be given to the weights supplied for each product when ordering.

We usually require enough people on site to be able to accept and unload the rooflight, our transport people will confirm is before scheduling a delivery. For our one piece factory bonded and glazed Slimline & Pyramid rooflights, it is important to check the access in order to allow a clear path for the rooflights to be lifted up onto the flat roof.

Manufacturing

By manufacturing our own unique high performance glass units in house we are able to control quality and lead times far greater than many other firms who simply buy their industry standard glass units from an outside source.

Our suite of in house designed thermally broken aluminium extrusions have been successfully sold for many years, with constant product development to keep us ahead of our competitors in terms of design, looks and performance.

During 2012 we have started a close working relationship with M.A.S. the government backed initiative to support and develop British manufacturing companies.
