On both new-build and heritage projects, incorporating our bespoke Ridge Rooflight into the apex of a dual-pitch roof preserves the roofline, and ensures light continues to shine in, even as the sun arcs overhead.
The Ridge Rooflight is a custom rooflight, glazed on both returns and precision built to straddle the ridge of your roof, matching its angle of pitch precisely.
With no framework visible from inside, the Ridge Rooflight effec- tively cuts a chunk out of the roof ridge and replaces it with glass, allowing daylight to continue to stream in uninterrupted as the sun rolls over from one side of the building to the other.
On each pitch of the roof, the Ridge Rooflight is fixed to a structur- al kerb on three sides.
We can manufacture your bespoke Ridge 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:
Enduroshield, a self-cleaning coating applied to the outer pane glass, can be applied to all glass at an additional cost.
The inner panes of your Ridge Rooflight can be made in either high-performance heat-strengthened glass; or toughened, laminat- ed glass. Our toughened glass is heat-soak tested to BS EN 14179-1:2016. This reduces spontaneous glass breakage by 99%.
The frames of Ridge Rooflights are welded to ensure watertight joints and corners. They are finished in a long-lasting, polyester powder-coated finish, to the RAL colour of your choice.
We calculate the specification of every bespoke Ridge Rooflight to pass Wind and Snow Loads of up to 0.9kN/m2. This ensures the safety and longevity of your rooflight, with optimal efficiency in cost.
