Beyond roof lights and lanterns, if you're considering a larger or more complex bespoke glass roof, then we can help you achieve your grand design. Our systems are made to order, so the choices available are almost unlimited.
Every single one of our roofs is carefully calculated and designed in-house to meet the exact requirements of your build. Whether you choose a lean-to roof over sliding doors, an pitched orangery roof or a more complex design involving multiple hips and valleys, we can work with you, your architect and your builder to find the most suitable solution.
Our bespoke roofs can incorporate integrated guttering and downpipes, creating a clean and sleek finished appearance by incorporating drainage into the overall design.
As standard we fit all of our roofs with a solar control glass that incorporates a self-cleaning coating that helps to keep itself clean of dirt and water-marks. By fitting double glazed, solar-control glass it is possible to reduce the amount of heat transmittance through the glass (solar gain) preventing the rooms below from becoming too hot in summer and too cold in winter.
To aid ventilation we can incorporate manual, electronic or automatically controlled openings into the design of your roof.
The aluminium structure of our glass roofs is thermally broken, preventing cold-bridging and therefore providing superior thermal performance - helping to make the space below the roof usable all year around.
Designing and manufacturing the widest range of products on the market in-house means we can integrate our bespoke glass roofs into overall glazing solutions including bifold or sliding doors, fixed frame windows or clerestory windows - providing a consistent overall design that looks like every element belongs together.
Our custom designed glass roofs are available as standard in a choice of three polyester powder-coated aluminium finishes – Gun Metal Grey (DB 703) textured, Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016) matt or Jet Black (RAL 9005) matt.
Alternatively the systems can be polyester powder coated to any stocked RAL colour (over 200 RAL colours) and even dual colour or textured finish. In addition, you can specify whether a matt, semi-gloss or full-gloss level of paint finish is required.
This East London side return extension has transformed the way the owners use the house, creating a new connection between house and garden, whilst filling the open plan kitchen full of natural light.
Turning a dream into reality was the task for the IDSystems technical team when presented with this non-standard extension for this timber clad barn - and utilising an innovative combination of glazing helped to achieve the vision.
