Lantern debut

The fully thermally broken Stratus lantern roof from Synseal Group is on track to hit 1,000 fully fabricated sales within its first year.

Sales of the aluminium lantern roof system have consistently grown every quarter since it was launched in September 2016. Despite being launched at a typically quiet time of year, Stratus was popular with Synseal’s roof customers, in part thank to a sneak peek at the 2016 FIT Show.
On show was the Contemporary style which supports the ridge solely by the hip rafters, creating a product that maximises the area of glazing in sizes up to 1.5m x 3m.

For larger applications, Stratus is also available in two-way and three-way styles up to 3m x 6m. The thermally broken eaves beam has been finished in black, so from a birds eye view, the perimeter appears as a discreet shadow line even on the largest Stratus lanterns.

Synseal’s Andy Jones said: “We were signing up a new fabricator every week to sell Stratus when it first launched, and now have more than half of our roof fabricators offering Stratus in addition to their Celsius Solid Roof, Global and K2 products.

“These stunning looks, coupled with thermal benefits of up to 65% better thermal efficiency than conventional aluminium systems, has proven to be a winner with our customers.”
