Rooflights have moved way beyond their original function, so much so that the term ‘rooflight’ sometimes doesn’t do the product justice. We have designed faceted glass systems which are heated to reduce condensation over swimming pools, sliding ridge rooflights which can retract along the apex of your roof, integrated hinged access rooflights into larger sections of fixed glazing to provide enormous amounts of natural daylight and access within one feature. One off box configurations with increased glass strength for snow load, solar controlled glass arrangements, the list goes on.

If you have a rooflight concept in mind, the first step would be to contact our Technical Specification team, who will be able to offer advice and help shape your scheme so that it can be delivered to specification and on budget.

Our most common custom build request is for large scale sliding rooflights, these will often be specified using several sections of glass which slide over each other or alternatively over the roof itself.

It may be necessary to engineer these sections to slide and stack if roof space is limited, this example demonstrates a ‘bi parting sliding stacking over fixed’ rooflight where the sections move in opposing directions and stack at either end.

As part of our design process we try to minimise framework wherever possible, maximising the amount of glass and therefore natural daylight in your building.

This thought process is also carried over to any mechanisms and control systems, for us it’s unacceptable to have any of this visible within the aperture of the rooflight when closed so we have developed all of our framing systems to hide everything within the frame itself.

This will usually include motors and drive shafts or rack and pinion mechanisms, control boards and even battery back up systems where specified.

Occasionally we’ll receive a request where a client has seen one of our standard rooflights, but it isn’t quite what they want.

We engage in consultation with clients, architects, structural engineers and contractors to realise our customers imagination and create exactly what it is you are looking for. No idea is too big, we have years of experience in dealing with bespoke rooflights, and our team will ensure you receive the rooflight you are looking for.

The sheer scale of some rooflight builds pushes technology to the limit, glass is a heavy material to work with and of course can be fragile if not correctly specified.

Many of our clients are lucky enough to live in impressive homes that have underground gyms or media rooms, or maybe they’ve installed a swimming pool.

Any rooflights installed for specialist applications will often require specialist glass. As always, our team will work with construction specialists and ensure that the correct glass is procured for your rooflight. This might be laminated glass, acoustic, switchable privacy glass or even heated glass which is really useful for getting rid of condensation in environments with high moisture levels, such as swimming pools!
