Designer, manufacturer and supplier of rooflights, Roof Maker, has launched its new rooflight, the Conservation Luxlite.
The conservation area friendly rooflight has been designed to help architects and installers maintain the heritage character of their clients’ homes. Particularly with regard to listed buildings and barn conversions.
Designed to replicate the original Victorian cast iron skylight featured in many traditional properties, Roof Maker’s latest rooflight features a slim shaped split bar that is constructed of aluminium, said to be for better weathering and aesthetics.
Roof Maker’s split is structurally bonded to the glass is said to eliminate the presence of a cold bridge, significantly minimising the risk of condensation forming and retaining the best possible thermal performance. The bonding process also reportedly eliminates the opportunity for dirt and debris to accumulate underneath the split. By constructing the split from aluminium, rather than commonly used steel, the opportunity for risk of corrosion is also said to be greatly reduced.
The rooflight offers U-values as low as 0.5W/m2K. This is done by featuring triple glazing as standard. This is said to significantly improve the overall energy efficiency and thermal comfort of the living space.
The new rooflight is available in either fixed or electric hinged opening options, including a free rain sensor if a remote control option is specified. Each Roof Maker rooflight is handcrafted to order, so can be built according to individual custom sizes to ensure a perfect fit.
