Roof light replacement is the service we offer with the most obvious and striking result. Replacing Roof lights can be the most effective method of getting more natural daylight into a commercial building or warehouse.
Roof lights become fragile, brittle and discoloured after approximately 15 years. This is mainly due to the UV light attacking the outer layer of the roof light.
Old roof lights can be a major cause of water ingress when seals break down or the general fabric of the roof light reaches the end of its life. Generally speaking the lifespan of a roof light will be significantly less than the main roof covering.
The installation of new roof lights can greatly reduce the number of leaks within the building, whilst also providing natural daylight to enhance working conditions.
The difference in light transmission between old and new roof lights could mean that you could turn off your artificial lighting and save on the cost of the electricity.
Glass reinforced polyester resin or (GRP) roof lights are supplied in various thicknesses and with different fire ratings. If there will be a service engineers trafficking the roof non-fragile roof lights should be installed.
If you have a mezzanine floor or single storey building Tinted GRP roof lights can be installed to diffuse light and to reduce glare and solar gain within the building.
