GV Headquarters


Glazing Vision are a UK manufacturer, all of our glass 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 Hugh Callacher.

Although our business has grown in size and we now use more state of the art machinery in our manufacturing process than ever before, many aspects of our process still rely on skilled engineers and craftsmen in order to deliver the kind of precision engineering Glazing Vision is renowned for.

A visit to our factory will leave you inspired as we use CNC machinery and skilled engineers to make the finest of glass rooflights.  Every rooflight is treated with care, whether its the materials arriving and getting a thorough check to the final QC checks.  Glazing Vision prides itself on having high standards, that’s why we have been in business for over 30 years.

Engineers review a glass rooflight


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.

Our Managing Director Jon Shooter “I have sat with architects all over the world, looking at their rooflight requirements.  This is what i have enjoyed the most in my 20 years at GV.  Finding solutions with an architect, then working with the builder/contractor and then seeing the project at completion.  That’s what makes GV an amazing company to lead, we love finding solutions and designing new rooflights and new configurations.”

We are here to help you get the right glass rooflight solution for your project.  To ensure that your rooflight is compliant to building regulations and will give you many years on natural daylight, ventilation or roof terrace access.

Many of our projects are residential dwellings, these can differ in size and complexity from your everyday period terrace houses to multi million pound houses in exclusive locations.  We have supplied glass rooflights on some of the most prestigious properties on the planet.  Whether in the UK, USA, Europe or even as far as Australia.  Glazing Vision has even manufactured rooflights in South America and Africa!

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.  Indeed we have even manufactured rooflights for our local library, police station and even our local Norwich castle.

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, meaning you always have a point of contact for updates of your rooflights progress through manufacturing.

Inspecting a rooflight


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 glass 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 over 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.  Our team of bespoke design engineers are ready to meet your challenge and provide you with a quality glass roof solution.  Most recently we have launched a range of high end pitched roof windows.  Enabling customers to do larger sized skylights on pitched roofs as opposed to a number of small roof windows on their roofs.

Water leak test on skybox


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 for our fixed Flushglaze glass skylight 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.
