Understanding rooflight performance

When performance is priority, have you checked the spec?

Posted: Monday 2nd December 2019 | Author: Vision AGI Team

Understanding the performance of a rooflight can be difficult, especially for those of us who don’t have a degree in physics or read British Standards in our spare time.

What does ±2000 Pa serviceability mean? Is it relevant to my project? Do I even need a performance tested rooflight?

Without getting into the boring long-winded codes of the British and European Standards, windows, doors and rooflights should be tested for “weather tightness”. This has three main components to it, air permeability, water-tightness and wind resistance. Continue reading »

Bespoke Circular Rooflight

Yaffles – bespoke circular, fixed and access hatch rooflights.

Posted: Thursday 15th November 2018 | Author: Vision AGI Team

We have recently completed a project for a client with a number of different rooflights; some standard fixed skylights, a bespoke circular rooflight and an access hatch roof window. They also wanted each rooflight to be triple glazed.

The professional pictures will be here in the new year but we wanted to share a little detail about the project and the pics taken shortly after installation.

Our client had requested a perfectly circular rooflight which was to fit in an upstand that was already in place and not ideal for the job. Our goal was to get this triple glazed, circular rooflight installed in this upstand whilst remaining thermally efficient. The Vision AGI install team managed to get the rooflight installed with some adjustments and were able to maintain thermal efficiency.

We think it looks fantastic and look forward to sharing the professional photos next year.

Take a look at the gallery of other images from the install below and if you want to bring some light into your next home building project, talk to the team.

Creating A Sense Of Space In Your Home

Posted: Tuesday 26th June 2018 | Author: Vision AGI

There are many creative and decorative tips and tricks one can adopt to give a sense of space in a home but many of these solutions are temporary, some only create an illusion and if not well executed can be costly and ineffective.
The only real way to truly create a sense of extra space in your home is to make use of natural light by installing windows and skylights; even if your house has many large open spaces you may still have a few smaller rooms which may need a little inspiration to bring out the best of the space.
