The Eaves Rooflights combines a glazed, overhead horizontal ‘roof’ section with a glazed, vertical ‘window’ section.
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.
Overhead Glazing Eaves Rooflights come in two options:
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.
We can manufacture your bespoke Eave Rooflight using a range of custom glass products with specialist specifications. These let you meet the requirements of almost any application. Options include double glazed units in:
A transparent protective treatment for skylights and rooflights. The once only application lasts years, cuts cleaning time and keep glass looking cleaner for longer between cleans. Untreated glass is porous and as a result it absorbs contaminants which can lead to deterioration and discoloration, making it more and more difficult to clean overtime.
