Eaves Rooflight



The Eaves Rooflights combines a glazed, overhead horizontal ‘roof’ section with a glazed, vertical ‘window’ section.

ROOFLIGHT OVERVIEW

With architects and home owners building ever more exciting refurbishments and extensions, our Eave Rooflight opens up a full 90 degree arc of light, unifying vertical window and horizontal overhead rooflight into a single, space-transforming glazed opening.

Overhead Glazing can create custom structural glass Eaves Rooflights “also known as Up & Over Glazing” in various sizes and configurations to meet the intersection of a vertical and horizontal glass panel.

The horizontal connection between the glass units is seamlessly sealed with spacer bars and a slim structural silicone seal, ensuring weather resistance and secure adherence between the glass panels. This design allows for an unobstructed view, with only the spacer bars and seal visible at the connection point.

Rooflight Feature

Overhead Glazing  Eaves Rooflights come in two options:

  • Flush Finish: The flush finish means that the vertical section is aligned with the horizontal panel, resulting in a water cascade effect during rainfall.
  • Overhang: On the other hand, the overhang feature serves as a concealed drip-off ledge on the slanted horizontal part of the Eaves Window. This feature effectively directs water away from the glass surface, keeping it clean and maintaining its appearance.

 

More Features:

  • Frameless design
  • Increased natural light
  • Overhead Protection with Laminated glass
  • Modular option for larger sizes
  • Various Glazing Option ( Low-e / Solar Control / Privacy)
  • Installed by our team

Structural Modular Option

The structural glass assembly for particularly long Eaves Windows can be created using several glass panels as a modular option.

When the width of the Eaves Window is less than 1.2m, there is no need for visible supports for the horizontal roof panel. However, if the width exceeds 1.2m, we can utilize slim steel supports or nearly invisible glass beams to provide support for the structural glass assembly.

All the eaves rooflights come with a Toughened Laminated inner pane and a Toughened Outer pane.

  • Cuts cleaning time and assists to reduce cleaning frequency
  • Low maintenance & superior protection against staining
  • Suitable for new and existing surfaces
  • Revitalizer products not required
  • UV stable & eco friendly
