The traditionally styled lantern with the latest aluminium technology

Innovation, great design and enhanced thermal performance are just some of the features of our latest Korniche Lantern Roof. Available in small or large sizes, this cutting-edge product is built to last.  Kornice roofs also have impressive thin proportions and a beautiful powder coated surface finish. Add style, light and value to your new extension with our beautiful modern roof lanterns. They are also perfectly combined with our slimline sliding patio doors in a matching colour.

A stronger, warmer and slimmer lantern roof

Structural elegance with impressive looks inside and out are just two of the many great features of Korniche lantern roofs.

The slim elegant Korniche lantern is designed to work in any style of home thanks to its classic design while retaining the contemporary desirability of an aluminium roof lantern. Slim aluminium sections come highly engineered for the highest performance.  The looks are further enhanced with sculpted bosses and entirely hidden fixings, retaining the impressive sightlines from the top of the roof to the edges.

Thermal efficiency is excellent thanks to insulated aluminium profiles and high specification glass units. Sealed and weather-resistant, Korniche lantern roofs eliminate cold bridging separating the internal and external profiles for energy efficiency. As a result, the thermally enhanced aluminium and glass give you outstanding interior comfort and help lower your energy bills.

 

Engineered for high performance and long life

The engineering and design of every Kornice Lantern roof make adding them to your home quick and easy. At Open Living, our extensive experience working with new extensions means a smooth and trouble-free process for you.

The Korniche roofs come made to order in a range of colours and glass options. As well as this, it’s designed from the outside to be simple to fit. Therefore, your project moves faster, meaning other trades can get on with their work in your home. Slim, attractive, durable and functional with class-leading performance too.

We even offer options for enhanced comfort such as self-cleaning glass, triple glazing or the latest solar control glass too.  Get the perfect finish in your home and create a feeling of space and light with our elegant lantern roof, looking great relaxing inside your new room.

The Korniche construction is one of the strongest on the market and comes designed to take the heaviest loads – peace of mind should snow settle on the roof.  Incredible strength means a typical roof lantern size of 6m length can support 8 tonnes of weight!

Open Living installed Origin bi-folding doors for our home. Their quality and service has been excellent throughout. Very trustworthy company. Right from the start, they provided good advice to help us select the right doors for our home; their quote was very competitive; their customer service was excellent throughout as they kept us updated on progress. The quality of the doors and the installation has been top-notch. Would highly recommend.

We purchased 1 set of bifold and 1 set of French patio doors, both Origin. Sales approach and customer service was excellent. Fitting and installation also excellent. Can't fault the product, either. Would have been 5 stars if it wasn't for an issue we had around the height of the threshold, which turned out to be much higher than we wanted/were expecting. This issue was resolved in a satisfactory way after discussion. Would definitely recommend, but my advice is to make sure the threshold height for patio doors is agreed at the survey and written on the paperwork before parting with any money.

Lovely people to do business with, we bought some BiFold doors and a window from OpenLiving. We did have a couple of minor teething issues once fitted but these were dealt with quickly and without fuss. Recommended!

I looked into a number of companies before deciding on Open Living in Letchworth for our bifold doors. I wanted the bifolds to be from a manufacturer that was very regarded, and Origin (though Open Living can also supply from Schuco and some other suppliers) certainly fall in that camp. I also liked the fact that Open Living were close to home, which made repeated visits to their showroom easy to make. Throughout the process, Linda and Marsha were professional and courteous and I would thoroughly recommend anyone who is looking to get bifolds to put OpenLiving Ltd on their shortlist.

So far I have ordered 12.5m sliding doors, 1 set of aluminium bi-folds and 5 windows from Open Living. The fitters are all great guys, and they take time to do a good job.The service and the products supplied have been excellent. I will be ordering more windows and do not hesitate to recommend them.

Had some OW80 windows that were fitted some time ago (by other installers, who had lost the cill caps). Marsha kindly helped me get some replacement items from Origin despite there being no financial incentive for open living to do so. Assistance has been very much appreciated and would highly recommend.

Had a great experience with Open Living. We had a 6m run of Origin bi-fold doors, an Atlas sky light some upvc windows installed. Customer Service and communication was good throughout, the installation guys did a good job and their technical guy was helpful with determining levels so we could achieve a level and flush threshold on the door. On top of this they were by far the lowest priced installer we found for the Origin doors which we had quoted by another three suppliers. Would recommend to others and will use again.

We weren't quite sure what bi-folding doors would be best but all the options were clearly and concisely laid out before us and some great solutions suggested to the issues we hadn't been able to work out on our own or with our builder. The showroom has lots of choice, brilliantly set out. We decided that Open Living would install our doors and they came and did a wonderful job.Looking forward to the spring to really get our new "open living" lifestyle underway!!
