When it comes to preserving the aesthetic appeal of traditional buildings in conservation areas, finding the perfect balance between maintaining the architectural heritage and incorporating modern advancements can be a challenge. That’s where Roof Maker’s Conservation Luxlite Pitched Rooflights come into play. Designed and handcrafted in the UK, these rooflights offer a seamless blend of classic aesthetics and cutting-edge thermal performance, making them an ideal choice for conservation areas, listed buildings, and properties seeking to preserve a traditional architectural theme.
One of the standout features of Roof Maker’s Conservation Rooflights is their triple-glazed design. Triple glazing provides enhanced thermal efficiency, helping to minimize heat loss and reduce energy consumption. The rooflights are also available in double glazing for those who prefer a different level of insulation. By utilizing advanced glazing technology, Roof Maker ensures that their Conservation Luxlite Rooflights meet the high standards required for modern energy-efficient buildings, all while maintaining the charm and character of traditional rooflights.
The design of Roof Maker’s Conservation Luxlite Rooflights is inspired by the elegance of Victorian cast iron skylights. These rooflights feature a slim shaped split bar made of high-quality aluminum. While traditional Victorian skylights had the split sandwiched between the glass panes, Roof Maker takes it a step further by structurally bonding the split to the glass. This innovative approach eliminates the presence of a cold bridge and significantly reduces the risk of condensation forming. Furthermore, the bonding process prevents dirt and debris from accumulating underneath the split. By using aluminum instead of steel for the split, the risk of corrosion is greatly minimized, ensuring long-lasting performance and durability.
Roof Maker’s Conservation Luxlite Pitched Rooflights boast several key features that make them a top choice for homeowners and architects alike. The frameless design allows maximum natural light to flood into the living space, creating a bright and inviting atmosphere. The rooflights have been weather tested against BS 6375 Pt 1, ensuring their resistance to wind, water, and air infiltration. For added convenience, the opening rooflights can be controlled remotely, providing up to 400mm of ventilation when desired.
To ensure a perfect fit for any project, Roof Maker offers made-to-measure sizes ranging from 0.4m up to 3m wide. The number of glazing split bars varies depending on the size of the rooflight, ensuring a balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Roof Maker’s commitment to excellence is evident in their accolades, as their Conservation Luxlite Rooflights were the proud winners of the 2018 Pitched Roofing Awards for “Best Use of a Rooflight” and were shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Best Roofing System or Product’ at the Build It Awards in 2022.
Installation and maintenance of Roof Maker’s Conservation Luxlite Pitched Rooflights are hassle-free. The rooflights are suitable for roofs with a pitch between 16 and 75 degrees, providing versatility for various architectural styles. They are available with fixed or electric hinged opening options, allowing for customizable ventilation solutions. The built-in flashing apron ensures superior water dispersion, reducing the risk of leaks and water damage.
Cleaning the Conservation Luxlite Rooflights is a breeze. It is important to use the right cleaning products that won’t scratch or damage the glass or frame. Harsh or abrasive cleaners should be avoided, and instead, a glass cleaner suitable for coated or toughened glass should be used. A soft, non-abrasive cloth or sponge is recommended for applying the cleaning solution, and cleaning both sides of the glass is essential for optimal results.
Roof Maker takes pride in offering optional upgrades for their Conservation Luxlite Pitched Rooflights. Customers can choose from various specialist glass types and colored tints to enhance the appearance and performance of their rooflights. Additionally, frames are available in Jet Black (RAL 9005) or Anthracite Grey (RAL 7016) for those who desire a specific aesthetic. Remote-controlled electric blackout fabric blinds, automatic rain sensors, and remote control functionalities are also available for added convenience and functionality.
