A choice of flat rooflight products

Glazing Vision’s range of rooflights boasts a minimalist aesthetic, creating a streamlined and attractive finish for any project, inside and out, and ensuring maximum daylight penetration. 

Our flexible system offers an elegant simplicity perfect for modern homes. Options include:

  • Fixed rooflights – Minimalist fixed rooflights with ‘frameless’ internal views.
  • Sliding rooflights – Bring natural daylight and natural ventilation into your home.
  • Hinged rooflights – Can provide ventilation, maintenance access or access terraces and roof decks.
  • Box rooflights – Create a striking visual element, as well as easy access for roof terraces.
  • Fire-rated and AOV rooflights – Rooflights can achieve up to 30 minutes insulation and 30 minutes integrity in case of fire, while automatic opening vents (AOVs) allow smoke out of the building.
  • Pyramid rooflights – These offer contemporary style and maximum daylighting.

As well as daylighting, our rooflights can be used to provide roof access, comfort ventilation and AOV for smoke ventilation. Walk-on designs can also be accommodated. They are designed to be energy efficient, with toughened low-E glass as standard and a choice of double or triple glazing. 

Depending on requirements, they can be constructed as multipart systems for a frameless appearance across a wide span, or eaves systems that combine the overhead rooflight with a vertical glazed section.

Flat rooflights with low-profile upstands

The most important considerations for any rooflight are its elevation from the roof and rainwater run-off. Planning regulations can leave little room for manoeuvring, which is one of the reasons Glazing Vision products are a popular choice. 

We’ve carefully designed our products to have minimum visual impact and low profiles, keeping local planning authorities and the neighbours happy while ensuring the building remains watertight.

All our rooflights are designed to fit on an upstand measuring just 150mm high, providing a non-obtrusive profile that keeps the weather out.

Specifying flat rooflights and the benefits of natural daylighting

There are many reasons why rooflights might be specified, but their primary purpose is to fill a space with natural daylight. While there are no national regulations or standards that require natural light, the benefits in terms of aesthetics and occupant wellbeing cannot be ignored. Natural lighting can:

  • Make spaces brighter
  • Make rooms feel more spacious
  • Improve occupants’ mood, concentration and health
  • Influence sleep cycles
  • Reduce energy bills

Incorporating daylighting into the design of residential homes can also enhance the property’s ambience, increasing its value and making it more appealing to potential buyers.

Beyond daylighting – additional benefits of flat rooflights

While daylight may be the main advantage of specifying flat rooflights, Glazing Vision products bring additional benefits to a property.

  • Creating the “wow” factor inside and out – With their non-obtrusive profiles, no external capping and no internally visible framework, our flat rooflights are an aesthetically pleasing addition to the home, elevating both its interior and exterior.
  • Effective rainwater run-off – Designed for low-pitch and flat roofs, our rooflights ensure rainwater runs off quickly, preventing pooling and moisture ingress.
  • Secure – For additional peace of mind, we offer a variety of rooflights accredited by Secured by Design to LPS 2081 Issue 1: 2015.
  • Safe – All of our rooflights use heat-soak tested safety glass as standard.
  • Energy efficient – Natural daylight can reduce electricity use during the day, and our flat rooflights are highly energy efficient, with low-E insulative glass as standard, minimising excess heat loss during the colder months.
  • BBA certified – Flushglaze rooflights are BBA approved, demonstrating that they meet the necessary performance and safety standards. 
  • Products to suit your project – From standard sizes and glass specifications to fully bespoke shapes and sizes, our flat rooflights can be provided to meet your project requirements.

Technical support and bespoke flat rooflights
