Choice is yours
Roof Maker offers four distinct glass options that are available across its range of rooflights and roof lanterns.
The specialist UV and IR blocking glass provides super insulating properties to reduce potential heat loss throughout a property. This is supported by a unit seal that is 80% deeper than industry standards, enabling Roof Maker to deliver a life expectancy of 30 years.
The Reflex glass options can be selected individually or can be combined. Supplied as standard, the Energy Saving offering features two or three panes of toughened safety glass to deliver the lowest U-values possible, with each pane separated by an argon/krypton-filled cavity and a foam spacer. A U-value of 0.5W/m²K can be achieved with this choice.
For greater temperature control, the Solar Performance option features a solar reflective coating that repels the heat of the sun, providing g-values as low as 23% to minimise solar gain. This keeps homeowners’ rooms cooler in summer and warmer in winter, important for properties that are south or west facing.
For urban areas, the Acoustic Performance range is designed to minimise noise pollution, providing insulation against exterior noises such as traffic and neighbouring properties. This style is most effective when combined with triple glazing.
Finally, the Security Performance option features Roof Maker’s standard glazing composition with laminated glass. This makes it harder for intruders to break through as the glass is primed with a plastic interlayer, which prevents shattering, keeping it in one piece.
