Sliding rooflights for pub restaurant

The Bridge House Pub and Restaurant, Bishop Stortford

Larger sliding rooflight for ventilation

Overview/Brief

This is by far Bishop Stortford’s most popular night spot. The pub was tragically ruined by a fire back in 2006 but has since been beautifully restored to an exceptional standard. Patrons of The Bridge House can now relax again in the comfortable and friendly atmosphere that it is renowned for. The installation of an upper level complete with a sliding glass rooflight gives visitors space to meet friends and enjoy a drink or two in a spacious and tastefully dressed upper bar. The rooflight can be retracted during the summer to give an outdoor space and provide plenty of natural ventilation.

Solution

The rooflight supplied was able to bi-part, due to the unavailability to slide completely off onto the roof. One section was required to slide over a fixed section allowing maximum ventilation opening capacity. The rooflight has completely concealed motors and running gear and was fitted with a rain sensor for automatic closing in the event of rain.
