Bespoke glass roofs

Bespoke glass roofs

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.

Designed to order

Infinite design options

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.

Integrated guttering

Our bespoke roofs can incorporate integrated guttering and downpipes, creating a clean and sleek finished appearance by incorporating drainage into the overall design.

Glass Icon

Solar control glass

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.

Thermal Quality Icon

Energy efficient

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.

Part of an overall solution

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.
