Glazing Vision are technical experts in the design and manufacture of architectural glass rooflights, we are on the cutting edge of rooflight design and our products can be found on rooftops across across Europe and the United States.
We offer a range of standard rooflights encompassing a variety of applications, from simple fixed rooflights to more complex sliding rooflights and access configurations. As well as stock products, we custom-build rooflights to order to ensure the perfect fit to any architectural design.
Our rooflight design ethos is ‘minimise framework, maximise daylight’ and we aim to fulfil this promise with every product we manufacture.
Glazing Vision are a UK manufacturer, all of our rooflight products are designed and built at our 65,000 sq ft factory in the heart of rural England.
We started off from humble beginnings in a small work shop as the vision of our company founder and major shareholder Hugh Callacher. You can read more about the timeline of Glazing Vision here.

Innovative design is often the result of inspiring architecture, we work directly with architectural practices of all different sizes all over the world. This collaborative approach ensures that product selection is optimised so our clients achieve outstanding results and realise beautiful buildings.
Our specification team are involved at the earliest stages of any project, often at concept stage. We continue this relationship throughout the process from initial quotation to order placement, design, manufacture, delivery and installation.
Project values range from under £1000 to over £1,000,000 and everything in between so we are happy to work with you to develop your scheme, however big or small it might be.
Many of our projects are residential dwellings, these can differ in size and complexity from your everyday period terrace house to multi million pound houses in exclusive locations.
Due to the size of our company and the many years of experience our team bring with them within the industry we are also very active in commercial sectors and with projects involving public buildings.
We have a sizeable dedicated Project Management team who are responsible for looking after your rooflight build and install from the moment the order is placed to the day it’s fitted on site.
R&D is relentless and Glazing Vision are proud of the fact that we were the first UK company to introduce and develop simple, clean rooflight designs for flat roofs.
Our success has led to many other companies manufacturing their own versions of these products which ensures healthy competition.
We never stop innovating and since those initial products were launched 20 years ago we have continued to bring exciting new ideas to market, hinged ventilation rooflights, sliding rooflights that provide 100% opening in your roof structure, access rooflights such as our box rooflight products and more recently our incredibly popular Skydoor rooflight.
The first fully glazed CE approved AOV smoke ventilation rooflight now allows designers of communal spaces to comply with safety regulations whilst providing a product that fits in with its surroundings and even offers dual functionality as a ventilation unit.
Our relationship with the architectural community pushes us to do better and be more creative with what can be achieved and we believe that Glazing Vision provides the most diverse range of rooflight products anywhere in the world.
Glazing Vision rooflights have been tested for air permeability, water ingress, impact and fire resistance, thermal performance, lifecycle and reliability to name but a few in order to ensure that your rooflight performs and functions as expected.
We were the first glass rooflight manufacturer to be certificated by the British Board of Agrement and also the first UK rooflight manufacturer to successfully attack test its products to security standard LPS2081, meaning that we are one of the few manufacturers that can supply secure rooflights that are compliant with part Q of the Building Regulations.
These products proved so resistant to attack that they have been awarded the UK Police flagship Secured by Design mark.
GV Services was set up to handle all of our installations and to offer post installation support to customers as our business grew larger. The team are usually busy out in the field installing, servicing and maintaining our more complex rooflights.
GV Services also offer extended Service and Maintenance contracts which ensures optimal performance of your rooflight and is particularly recommended for any opening units.
