Designed to provide a large opening to any roof. If you require an even larger area for the opening, please view our bi-parting sliding rooflights
Our sliding rooflights are ideal for the following:
In any of these instances, the Duplus sliding glass rooflight is the ideal solution. Our sliding roof light is suitable for flat roof applications up to a maximum of 5 degrees slope.
Our high quality thermally efficient rooflight meets the requirements of the Building Regulations. The in-built telescopic sliding mechanism allows the rooflight to support its own weight when fully opened. Therefore, without the need for any roof tracks or further roof penetrating supports. The maximum size currently available is 2000mm width x 2000mm in length.
Our sliding rooflight incorporates rack and pinion drive with a 24v concealed electric motor. A touch sensitive switch (or similar) is provided to allow precise control of the motor. The switch incorporates an in-built transformer (see technical section), simplifying the electrical wiring connections and fits neatly into a standard double gang back box.
Optional extras include:
If you are considering ordering a product where roof access will be required, then please request the additional access pack which incorporates chequer plate tread boards that help protect the sliding skylight internal framework and reduce the risk of slipping during access and egress.
The rooflight design incorporates a manual override facility. The override facility enables the rooflight to be closed in the event of power failure. This facility includes a key, which can be used to disengage the motor. The rooflight can then be manually opened or closed.
Duplus sliding rooflights are double glazed in clear toughened and HEATSOAKED safety glass as standard.
Glass options available:
The maximum internal dimension of the flat sliding roof lights is 1800mm (2000mm external kerb size) and for our bi-parting sliding rooflight it is 1800mm internal x 3800mm internal (2000mm x 4000mm external kerb size)
The minimum size we offer for sliding rooflights is 900mm.
Sliding rooflights can slide in either length or width. However, the slide direction must be perpendicular to the fall of the upstand.
to provide a quote for your rooflight, we just need the external kerb dimensions and which direction you require for sliding.
Yes, electric rooflights can be linked to a smoke detector, although it isn't a certified smoke ventilator.
Yes, the motors are 24v, but a third party battery back up would need to be purchased, we do not supply these.
The speed of our the opening of our sliding rooflights is 7mm per second.
Our rooflights achieve outstanding thermal performance. True U-value and Ud-value available upon request.
The extruded thermally broken aluminium perimeter frame is powder coated RAL 7015 dark grey matt externally and RAL 9910 white matt internally as standard. Other RAL colour options are available upon request. As standard, all double glazed units incorporate clear low ‘E’ glass achieving a centre pane U-value of 1.1 W/m²K.
Our sliding rooflight is easy to install, an internal perimeter gasket allows the rooflight to be placed directly on top of the builder’s kerb without the need for site applied silicone. It is then screwed to the builder’s kerb externally and a matching cover clip is then applied to conceal the fixings. A qualified electrician will be required to make the final connections to the motor and the transformer switch. Wiring diagrams are provided with all opening and sliding rooflights.
The rooflight comes fully assembled and is factory cycle tested to ensure the products long term reliability. In the unlikely event of a motor failure, replacement motor housings are available from Duplus which have been designed to be simple to exchange.
Delivered FULLY ASSEMBLED. No need for time-consuming assembly on site. Significantly higher security compared to kit systems.
