Sky’s the limit

Roof Maker has extended its range of rooflights with the launch of a new Abutment Rooflight, roof glazing that runs up against the wall.

Designed to let natural light into the inner areas of a house, which can be left dark when an extension is added, Roof Maker’s new Abutment Rooflight can be installed against walls at a pitch of 5° to 15°, removing the gap between the wall and rooflight.

Cushioning moulds into the crevices of walls that may have small imperfections or rough textures, reducing the risk of water ingress. The Abutment Rooflight is suitable for period properties that have aged or imperfect finishes to the brick work, which previously proved difficult for contractors to achieve a perfect installation.

Aa bulky lead flashing detail from the wall to the glazing isn’t required, which provides a sleek look that also maximises the amount of natural light, making it ideal for the creation of a glass ceiling effect on side return extensions, the company said.

The Abutment Rooflight is also available as a walk on unit, perfect for fitting at ground level in gardens to provide natural light to basements while maximising usable space.

Available in black or anthracite grey finishes, the Abutment Rooflight is supported by Roof Maker’s specialist Reflex Glass range in a variety of glass tint options. Prices start from £475 + VAT and is available to purchase from Roof Maker directly.
