Designed to be installed flush with terraces, pavements and similar exterior flooring, our bespoke, totally safe Walk-On Rooflights let you pour daylight into basements and other areas to which it’s otherwise impossible to introduce natural light.
Our Walk-On rooflights are engineered to provide a completely safe and attractive design feature, bedding flush into decking, tiling or cast floor surfaces, while at the same time allowing daylight into a basement or other space below, that lacks natural light. The unit is installed to an upstand.
As with all our products, we take every measure possible to ensure the safety of our Walk-On Rooflights.
This covers not only the custom frame section, which is designed specifically to support walk-on glass, but extends to our insistence on BS compliant loadings being specified when ordering for com- mercial applications.
We can manufacture your bespoke Walk-On Rooflight using a range of custom safety glass products. These let you meet the requirements of almost any application. Options include double glazed walk-on units in:
Our Walk-On rooflights can also be manufactured for other applications such as public areas, commercial or heavy duty applications, where loadings will be higher.
When enquiring about walk-on glass for a commercial project, you must provide the loadings relevant to this specific application in accordance with British Standards. We will then ensure that the glass supplied to you is capable of meeting those demands.
To determine what these loadings might be, you should refer to BS EN 1991-1-1:2002, Eurocode 1: Actions on structures. This covers general actions, densities, self-weight, and imposed loads for buildings.
The loadings for a glass rooflight designed for deliberate foot traffic are always dependent on building type and specific use. For guidance, load capacities of the following magnitude are fairly typical:
