Open up your roof

Our Sliding Over Roof unit does exactly what you’d expect: the entire section of glazing retracts out onto your roof space, leaving you with open, unimpeded views of the sky above. All the glass used is flush to allow water run off and easy cleaning.

100% opening – tracks on the roof

The weight of the glass is supported by tracks installed on the roof so you will need space to achieve this dramatic effect on your building. If you are limited on space we have another option: our Sliding Over Fixed rooflight.

One touch opening

The rooflight is opened electrically, operated by a rocker switch positioned at the discretion of the client. It includes a ‘one touch’ facility, where the switch is pressed then released leaving the rooflight to open automatically. If you wish the unit to stop, press close once. If you wish to have the unit only part open, you can keep the switch pressed until this point is reached.

Additional options

There are gadgets too, remote controls, rain sensors, proximity detectors, thermostats, keypad override systems – the units can even be connected to your building management system using the integrated plug and play electronics.

Inspiration

Innovative design is often the result of inspiring architecture. Being able to see how installing glass rooflights can dramatically affect the dynamics of a space is what keeps us inspired. Our rooflights feature some amazing technology and elegant design ideas but ultimately we all know what really matters is how these products improve your space.
