A roof window is a window built out from a sloping roof with the window at the same angle as the pitch of the roof. It allows for natural lighting and ventilation into a habitable room or attic. On new buildings the roof structure would be designed to accommodate the roof light. Where a roof light is to be installed in an existing roof structure the roof must be opened and trimmers and framing constructed to receive the roofwindow.
Roof lights are available as roof windows i.e. opening sash, or as a skylight i.e. non-opening fixed light. The frame is constructed from Hardwood and is grooved on the bottom edge to receive the ceiling boards of the light well.
The opening sash is made from hardwood and fitted with a revolving hinge. The sash may be turned outside inwards for easy cleaning from the inside. Toughened glass is sealed with a gasket and is secured with an aluminium extrusion to the sash. The frame and sash has a built in ventilator at the top to allow for ventilation when the window is closed and a condensation outlet at the bottom.
All roof windows are fitted with 4mm heat reflective toughened glass as standard. Where soft furnishings or any item sensitive to UV exposure is situated below the roof windows, the use of optional PVB laminated glass is recommended. In addition, a blind may be fitted for total protection.
All single glazed units are fitted with a condensation outlet which channels moisture out on to the roof. The use of optional PVB laminated glass or double-glazing will greatly reduce condensation build-up, and is recommended for use in bedrooms and bathrooms.
Out of reach Roof Windows can be operated by compact and quiet 220V electric actuators or by aluminium opening rods of various lengths. Where a blind is required, a rod with crank handle end is used to open the Roof Window and operate the blind.
Our unique patented hinge mechanism rotates the sash through about 165 degrees to allow easy cleaning from inside the room. We further offer the option of solid stainless steel hinges for corrosion resistance in coastal applications.
Airing is a natural habit for most people. Morning rituals often include a thorough airing out of the bedroom and the bathroom after showering. Similarly, many people instinctively open the windows to let in some fresh air after cooking and cleaning, or when they return home. These actions reflect a desire to keep the home smelling sweet and fresh, and a concern for the health and well-being of the family.
The folding open roof window opens to a maximum height of 200mm. The roof window is either opened or closed
