What’s Glass Rooflight/Skylight?

It looks too simple, most person knows it’s similiar as a glass window which installed on roof.

In the dictionary, a skylight is defined as ‘a window set in a roof or ceiling at the same angle’ and because the term ‘skylight’ is so broad, it can be used in the pitched roof sense as well as the flat roof sense when it comes to talking about them.

Flat roof skylights

Since the recession hit back in 2008, more and more homeowners are looking to build upwards and outwards instead of moving home due to the downturn in the economy. Building an extension or converting your loft space into an additional room is seen as the popular choice in recent years with people preferring to add value to their property in the current climate, instead of risking a move to another property.

Because of this change in thinking from homeowners, as well as an increase in state-of-the-art technology, the installation of a skylight into your home is now easily affordable and can add even more value to your home.

Types of flat roof skylights

Flat glass rooflights

When considering the installation of a skylight in your flat roof, maximising the amount of natural daylight coming into your home is often the number one priority. This is, ultimately, the reason for wanting to have one installed in the first place.

Flat glass rooflights are made up of a double, triple or quadruple glazed flat glass unit with insulated supporting upstand. With some products, you may need to build your own on-site upstand to support the flat glass unit however this is clearly outlined on the necessary products where required.

Flat roof lanterns & pyramids

Made for a modern or contemporary home, flat roof lanterns and pyramids will give you a fantastic view of the sky above and add up to 3 times more natural light than vertical uPVC windows.

Whereas the majority of pyramids and lanterns are non-opening, there is the option to add ventilation across some of our brands with a manual opening or electrically operated vent-flap or slide opening flat roof lantern. With the huge array of options available when it comes to flat roof lanterns, you can effectively build your own.

Walk-on rooflights

A walk-on rooflight makes an amazing centrepiece in any home and can be installed externally on your flat roof or as a stunning internal feature.

Allowing you to bring natural daylight to places where it wasn’t possible before, walk-on rooflights don’t compromise in a loss of floor space.
