Our complete range of flat rooflights improve your existing flat roof or as part of an extension or renovation project.
Contemporary Aluminium Rooflights.
Does your home have a flat roof? Our rooflights offer a great way to improve a stagnant flat roof.
The fitting of a rooflight to an existing roof is an excellent way to reduce your energy consumption. Natural daylight comes into your home instead of artificial light. Rooflights are ideal for the winter months when the daylight hours are shorter.
Terraced houses, urban properties or those close together, benefit from flat rooflights. Furthermore, rooms benefit from natural light without the costly building work fitting new or extra windows.
Features of our aluminium flat rooflights.
All our quality rooflights come in the latest thermally broken insulated aluminium. As a result, every one of our modern rooflights is strong, light, and hardwearing. Furthermore, the durable powder coated finish ensures it looks good for years to come.
You get as standard a 50mm toughened triple glazed unit. The glass also has a soft coat low emissivity coating, an argon gas fill. Addtionally, all our glass meets current European standards.
Finally, you can choose from clear, tinted, or a range of privacy glasses. The external face of the glass features special coatings protecting it from the glare and UV rays of the sun as well as having easy clean properties.
At Open Living, we manufacture all our rooflights using the Reflex Glass product. This is a specialist UV and IR blocking glass. You get super insulating properties, reducing heat loss from your house. We brand every unit with the Reflex glass logo to ensure a 100% genuine product.
Toughened safety glass as standard to BS EN12150. The inner pane of glass is laminated for greater security for swimming pools and child-friendly areas.
The glass comes with a durable easy-clean coating. Consequently, this protects it from discolouration and promote self-cleaning ability during rainfall. There is less manual cleaning process as this glass cleans better than normal glass.
Our Fixed flat and opening rooflights feature triple glazing as standard. Triple glazing is an optional extra for our Pyramid and Slimline rooflights. We provide the very best heat insulating properties achievable for glass units. The U-value is 0.6 W/m2k for the flat triple glazed units and 0.7 W/m2k for the Slimline and Pyramid glazed units. Triple glazed units are 100% argon filled and feature Super Spacer continual warm edge spacer bar. As a result you get improved sound insulation against heavy rain, traffic and noise.
All our products are delivered via our fleet of company vans. Our specialist drivers have many years of experience in handling our glass products. For roofs ordered ready assembled and factory glazed, special consideration needs to be given to the weights supplied for each product when ordering.
We usually require enough people on site to be able to accept and unload the rooflight, our transport people will confirm is before scheduling a delivery. For our one-piece factory bonded and glazed Slimline & Pyramid rooflights, it is essential to check the access to allow a clear path for the rooflights to be lifted up onto the flat roof.
