ROOF WINDOWS

Adding natural light can have a positive impact on the value and feel of your home, so by combining these windows together you can create a dramatic visual impact which will transform your home with daylight alone.

Here are the standard sizes of roof windows (RW)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flashing Systems

U Flashing: For profiled tiles and corrugated sheets.
L Flashing: For thin roofing materials i.e. fibre cement, slate, and shingles
T Flashing: For thatch roofs
Up stand Flashing: For flat roofs or pitched bellow 17 degrees.

The outer casing is formed in aluminium and powder coated for resistance against harsh weather conditions.

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.

Glazing options for heat, UV & sound control

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.

What happens to heat build up?

We offer various options in higher spec heat reflective glazing systems. In addition excessive heat build-up exists through a filtered dust extracting ventilator.

What happens to condensation?

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 Applications and Blinds

 

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.

Roller blinds are available in five colours, two of which utilise block out fabric. Out of reach blinds require a RAB adaptor for crank handle operation.

Solid rods are available in lengths of 600mm, 1.2m and 1.8m. Telescopic rods are available in lengths of 2.0m, 2.4m and 3m. A crank handle end is required where blinds are fitted.

Our Patented Hinge

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. 

In fact, letting fresh air into your home gives a sense of belonging and feeling at home. On a warm day it is very pleasant to feel the breeze through the windows, letting in the smells and sounds of summer and activating all your senses. When you air out your home, you take control of it, remove the boundaries between inside and outside, and make it an active and inhabited place

We also have a more affordable aluminium roof window available
