Conservation rooflights are a perfect combination of modern technology and traditional aesthetics. Designed to replicate the classic Victorian and Edwardian rooflight style, these premium rooflights offer exceptional thermal performance, durability, and energy efficiency. In this article, we will explore the features, benefits, and key considerations of premium conservation rooflights, specifically focusing on the Luxlite Pitched Rooflights offered by Roof Maker.
The Charm of Conservation Rooflights:
Conservation rooflights are meticulously crafted to capture the charm and elegance of traditional architectural designs. With their slim shaped split bars and high-quality aluminum construction, these rooflights emulate the original Victorian cast iron skylights. The split bars are structurally bonded to the glass, eliminating cold bridges and minimizing the risk of condensation. Additionally, the use of aluminum instead of steel significantly reduces the risk of corrosion.
Exceptional Design and Performance:
Roof Maker’s Luxlite Pitched Rooflights feature a signature frameless design, allowing maximum natural light to enter your space. The rooflights are weather-tested against BS 6375 Pt 1, ensuring superior performance in various weather conditions. The opening Conservation Luxlite rooflights can be controlled remotely, offering ventilation with an opening of up to 400mm. Furthermore, these rooflights incorporate an innovative flashing apron that provides excellent water dispersion and prevents leaks.
Tailored to Your Requirements:
Roof Maker offers made-to-measure sizes for their Luxlite Pitched Rooflights, catering to a wide range of roof dimensions. Whether you have a small or large roof space, you can find the perfect fit. The number of glazing split bars is dependent on the size of the rooflight, ensuring structural integrity and aesthetic appeal. Roof Maker’s Luxlite Pitched Rooflights have been recognized for their excellence and were the winner of the 2018 Pitched Roofing Awards for “Best Use of a Rooflight.”
Energy Efficiency and Sustainability:
Premium conservation rooflights are designed to enhance the energy efficiency of your building. The Luxlite Pitched Rooflights have Ug-values as low as 0.6w/m2k, ensuring excellent thermal insulation and reducing heat loss. By allowing natural light to flood your space, these rooflights can also help reduce the need for artificial lighting during the day, resulting in energy savings and a reduced carbon footprint. Roof Maker is committed to sustainability and offers optional upgrades such as solar control glass and automatic rain sensors to further enhance the energy efficiency of their rooflights.
Planning Permission and Conservation Areas:
If you are considering installing rooflights in a conservation area, it is important to comply with the relevant planning regulations. Conservation rooflights from Roof Maker are specifically designed to replicate the style and appearance of traditional rooflights, making them an ideal choice for conservation areas and listed buildings. However, it is advisable to consult with your local planning authority to ensure compliance with specific requirements.
Cleaning and Maintenance:
To maintain the beauty and functionality of your conservation rooflights, proper cleaning and maintenance are essential. It is recommended to avoid using harsh or abrasive cleaning products that can damage the glass or frame. Instead, use a suitable glass cleaner and a soft, non-abrasive cloth or sponge. Cleaning both sides of the glass is important for optimal transparency and clarity. Roof Maker’s conservation rooflights are designed for easy cleaning, and their frameless design eliminates any obstructions that could hinder the cleaning process.
Premium conservation rooflights, such as the Luxlite Pitched Rooflights offered by Roof Maker, provide the perfect blend of traditional aesthetics and modern performance.
