Opening Roof Lanterns
Opening Roof Lanterns
While roof lanterns are most commonly known for letting large amounts of sunlight into people’s homes, it is also possible to find aluminium roof lanterns that are able to open up a hatch and allow fresh air to enter the home as well.
If this idea appeals to you, or you’re interested in some of our other roof lights, then you should view our range on our website at UK Aluminium Bifold Doors by visiting our homepage.
Our Range Of Lanterns
While an opening roof lantern is a great investment that offers many benefits, it does limit the number of style options you’ll be able to choose from when customising your roof lantern, as the air vent that opens needs to sit between glazing bars.
This means that you’ll only be able to choose from style options 3, 5, 6, and 7, as these are the only designs that feature enough space to install a roof vent opening. Unfortunately, flat roof lanterns for flat roofs cannot feature an opening, as they only feature one large pane of glass.
The types of aluminium roof lanterns that we have on offer include:
You’ll also be able to choose from a variety of glazing options, depending on your budget and taste.
Uses Of These Lanterns
An opening aluminium roof lantern offers more than a few benefits and uses, such as the fact that they allow more light to enter whatever room they are installed above due to their glass structure.
This extra natural light is also what makes a roof light so energy efficient, as it also allows more of the sun’s heat to enter your home. This means that a roof lantern can help you save money on both your electricity bill and your gas bill, as you won’t need to artificially light and heat your home as much.
These roof lanterns also provide the benefit of extra ventilation, which can help keep your home cool in the hotter months, as hot air will gather around your roof, and you’ll now be able to release this, making kitchen roof lanterns a very popular choice due to the potential build-up of heat.
Why Are These Lanterns Popular With Homeowners?
Opening lantern roofs have become so popular as they will add some understated contemporary design to your household, such as a conservatory roof lantern. The solar control glass will help you save on your energy bills owing to its thermal efficiency. They comply with all building regulations while filling your home with more natural light – it’s a win-win!
What Colours Of Lanterns Are On Offer?
Our roof window options come in grey and white as standard, but you’ll also be able to choose any other RAL colour for an extra cost.
