Roof lanterns are a much more efficient way of allowing natural light to enter your home than traditional windows. They offer huge benefits in large rooms, atriums and orangeries, bringing daylight into the centre of otherwise dimly lit spaces. Roof lanterns are very versatile and can often be fitted throughout the interior of single storey houses and extensions and on top floors, making your home light and airy and really welcoming!
We have broken down the specification into each of the stages of manufacture:
- The Finials1 and crestings2 are manufactured in Aluminium.
- Our aluminium capping system for weatherproofing uses a twin gasket system, and comes with a powder coated finish.
- As standard the glass provided is a soft coated doubled glazed 4-16-4 toughened glass providing a U-value of 1.6. In addition to this we can provide a range of glass types from ‘Solar Control’ to glazed units containing special gases. Contact us for further details.
- The rafter section is 44mm and has a hand crafted Roman OG3 detail carved into every timber section.
- The hand crafted centre boss’s provide a traditional centre piece to every hip section.
