White aluminium roof lantern interior view

More sky, less roof

Our aluminium roof lanterns might utilise a minimal design made possible with slimline technology, but this doesn’t mean that they ever open your conservatory to risk of draughts and cold spots. Comprised of energy efficient glazing and rafters, each lantern delivers impressively low U-values of just 1.5 W/m²K – that’s twice as thermally efficient as the nearest competitor. This keeps energy bills under control. The space will remain comfortable all year round and the risk of condensation is reduced with these high performance glass roofs.
