Project Description

Conserving history with the Conservation Rooflight and the Conservation Plateau from The Rooflight Company.

Buildings.

Renovating a property or building within a conservation area means careful consideration of the historic context. But this should not restrict the ability to modernise with rooflights. The Rooflight Company’s original Conservation Rooflight replicates the Victorian cast iron model, combining design and innovation to ensure it meets all current Building Regulations, as well as Conservation, English Heritage, and National Trust criteria. It also benefits from the latest thermal efficiency.

Buildings.

The rooflight features slim, clean lines and a low-profile to match the roofline, enhancing the building’s aesthetics. There are linking bars for every size and the units are designed to maximise light ingress and ventilation into older buildings. A top-hinged opening ensures an authentic appearance, as do the glazing clips on the exterior, bringing the rooflight into the 21st century without losing any of the original features. It achieves a whole unit U-value of 1.4 W/m²K in accordance with BS EN ISO 10077-2:2017.

Buildings.

The Conservation Plateau, also from The Rooflight Company, is the only flat rooflight designed specifically for heritage buildings with an authentic skirt design. The unit achieves a whole unit U-value of 1.4 W/m² K (vertical plane calculation), 1.9W/m²K (horizontal plane calculation) in accordance with BS EN ISO 10077-2:2017.

Buildings.

All of the company’s heritage roof windows are fitted with a unique Thermoliner feature, which allows condensation to be controlled and limits the risk of mould.  The standard frame is finished in a textured semi-gloss paint finish in black RAL 9005. There is a wide range of standard sizes in stock to fit all rafter widths. A made-to-measure service avoids cutting existing rafters, allowing specifiers preserve the integrity of any historical building.
