Tech Spec & Downloads
The Opening Roof Windows come with a 32mm DGU toughened safety glass with low-e coating and warm edge spacer. The low-e coating allows the suns natural heat (solar gain) to pass through the panes then the low-e coating reflects the heat gain back into the room, which is more energy efficient. The warm edge spacer is made of an insulating plastic composite material that becomes a barrier to heat loss, keeping the edge of the unit warm, resulting in less heat loss.
Manufactured from our own 6063-T6 aluminium profile, thermally broken with 32mm polyamide insulation sections to prevent cold bridging and stop condensation. The frames are dual colour, coated with marine grade polyester powder coating; supplied in dark grey (RAL 7015) externally and white (RAL 9010) internally, as standard. They come factory glazed, as one unit for ease of installation, for the best easy to fit solution include our Upstand which will give you the correct fall angle required.
Our Manual Opening roof windows are fitted with a telescopic screw-jack opener and supplied with a telescopic operating pole. The screw-jack has an opening stroke at 250mm.
The Electric Opening Roof Window comes with a quality concealed opening mechanism, and is easy to operate. It’s factory-fitted with 24v chain-driven actuators which are completely concealed within the frame. Standard actuators have a stroke of 300mm (as a bespoke option these can be programmed with a 600mm stroke; if you are interested in this option please call or email).
To enhance the functionality of the Electric Opening Roof Window, we are able to offer a range of additional control options for your convenience including remote control wireless key-fob, rain sensor and wind & rain sensors (for more details please see the Accessories tab).
NOTE: A fixing kit is supplied with this item, which will include all fixings needed for installation but the Electric Opening must be wired in and signed off by a qualified electrician (wiring diagrams will be sent with the rooflight).
BESPOKE OPTIONAL EXTRAS
Solar Control Coating – helps to prevent the build up of heat during hot summer months. The coating reflects the heat from the sun back to the outside of the glass keeping the interior cooler in the summer months, and significantly reduces the amount of heat that is able to pass in through your rooflight providing you with a more comfortable and useable living space.
Self Cleaning Glass – uses the forces of nature to maintain a cleaner and clearer appearance. In a dual-action process organic dirt is broken down by daylight and is then washed away by rain, thus making it environmentally friendly and very easy to maintain.
Diffused Privacy Interlayer – provides increased levels of privacy and glare reduction through diffusion of the incoming light. The translucent glass combines privacy with safety and security.
External Colour – the frames are dual colour, coated with marine grade polyester powder coating; supplied in dark grey (RAL 7015) externally and white (RAL 9010) internally, as standard. If you would prefer an alternative external colour you can upgrade your rooflight and then choose the external colour you would like from our RAL colour chart.
Triple Glazing - Triple glazing is also available as a bespoke option and can provide a warmer, quieter and more secure glazing option, if required. As well as providing more insulation, the extra layer of glass helps to reduce the amount of unwanted noise entering your home from outside and makes the window harder to break, giving you a greater degree of security.
