Reach for the sky

Steve Hacking, SupaLite’s managing director, says that natural light is something that most homeowners will have taken for granted, but since the lockdown that could be about to change.

Being confined indoors for two months will have given homeowners a new appreciation of their homes, and many will want to bring more natural light in, particularly as the summer months approach.

A craving for natural light will offer a fantastic opportunity for ambitious installers who can meet these demands with SupaLite’s Sky Vista.

The hybrid roof system combines SupaLite’s renowned lightweight tiled roof with high-performance glazed panels, giving homeowners the thermal performance of a SupaLite system, while benefiting from higher levels of natural light.

Adding the glass system to its range of replacement conservatory and orangery roof systems last year has strengthened our position as a respected tiled roof manufacturer.

Sky Vista has proved popular among our approved SupaLite fabricators and installers and we are anticipating that demand to increase. Bringing more natural light into the home will be an attractive prospect, particularly as there is bound to be a period of adjustment as things start slowly getting back to normal.

Some homeowners may be reluctant to spend on holidays to go abroad this summer so will want to enjoy the sunlight streaming in, while others will have converted their conservatory into a home office or home gym and want extra light to help.

Sky Vista has excellent U-value properties and effective solar control, meaning homeowners can regulate the temperature of their conservatory while allowing plenty of natural light to flow through.

The technology behind the Sky Vista also means a conservatory will be cool and comfortable on hot sunny days and warm and cosy on cold winter ones. Sky Vista glass is also self cleaning.

The Sky Vista has a full array of design options, can be configured to numerous conservatory styles, including Edwardian, Victorian and lean-to, and comes in two colour options: blue and neutral.

In addition to slate roof tiles, Sky Vista is available with SupaLite’s ExtraLight textured steel tiles, which not only offer exceptional strength and durability but are much faster to fit.

We have a dedicated training space and showroom site near our headquarters in Preston for its partners to use.

We have worked hard to provide our trade partners with new products that will help them grow their business and Sky Vista gives them a high-performance system that’s highly desirable and incredibly easy to manufacture and install, providing them with a valuable route to market for the summer months ahead.

SupaLite tiled roof systems are fully accredited for Building Regulations approval and offer a cost-effective solution that converts traditional conservatories into useable spaces all year round.
