Product Features

Hardware

Your new opening rooflights use the same high-specification parts and design of their fixed counterparts, with additional opening vents with manual or automatic operation. They enjoy the same mechanical jointed construction with durable corners and designed for the British weather.

Concealed chain actuators allow you to open your rooflight partially or fully right up to a full opening of 400mm. The remote sensor with our automatic opening option comes with a rain sensor as standard.

Other hardware and design features provide only one jointed corner to the rooflight seal and a secondary seal sitting 80% deeper than other rooflights.

You benefit from a highly engineered rooflight with the added benefit of controllable ventilation and air-flow when you want it.

Glass

The easy-clean glass provided with our rooflights comes as a triple glazed unit fitting neatly within the light and strong all aluminium construction. The decorative ceramic border around the glass units provides protection to the rooflight edges with enhanced UV and weather protection.

All our glass comes with a high quality construction designed to withstand the flat exposed nature of your new rooflight. Even better is the 20-year warranty available with most glass options. Even the structural adhesive used on the glass units withstands temperatures between -50 degrees Centigrade up to 100 degrees centigrade. And it comes with a 30-year life expectancy.

When you enhance your home with one of our rooflights, you have absolute peace of mind that our rooflights come with the best engineering with superior glass and sealing technology.

Colour

Standard frame colours of Anthracite Grey or Jet Black are the most popular but we offer special RAL colours with the same durable powder-coated finish.

All aluminium profiles come with an enhanced marine-grade powder coating in your choice of colour.

Therefore your new rooflights come with a powder-coated finish, thicker and more durable than conventional windows and doors.

colours available with Dutemann Glide-S sliding door

Energy Efficiency

Double or triple glazed units achieve outstanding Ug Values as low as 0.6w/ m2k. Double glazing achieves reduced values but still excellent for the product.

The energy efficiency comes from thermally insulated sections, high specification glass and uses the latest warm-edge spacer and argon gas technology.

As a result, the heat loss through your rooflight is kept to the bare minimum. Your new rooflights perform faultlessly, retaining the heat in your room and helping you save money on your heating bills.
