Duplus Wall Abutted Rooflights/Roof Lanterns
Our accredited structural silicone glazing techniques allow the production of a 30° wall abutted roof lantern. Frameless and low pitch roof design incorporates the same structural bonding techniques used in our SB30 aluminium glass roof lantern.
Frameless in design and no requirement for internal framework to the products hips or ridge. When looking up at the roof lantern, the external hip and ridge cappings are designed to remain unseen. The internal finish of the glass to glass joints creates a sleek, ’frameless’ contemporary aesthetic that is truly jaw-dropping.
This product is primarily used where there is a requirement for a lantern rooflight design but with a wall abutment. This allows maximum natural light to penetrate into darker spaces of the room, particularly rooms that have been extended.
Duplus roof lanterns are double glazed in clear HEATSOAKED toughened safety glass as standard.
- Blue tinted glass
- Bronze tinted glass
- Grey tinted glass
- Obscure finish for privacy
- High-performance solar control
Unlike traditional ‘stepped edge’ glass rooflights where the outer edge of the glass is vulnerable to breakage, our UK manufactured rooflights fully enclose the double glazed units within the perimeter framework to eliminate this risk. The top surface of the double glazed unit is flush with the external face of the perimeter frame to allow rainwater to disperse rapidly, minimising cleaning and maintenance requirements.
This wall abutment rooflight is also available without external cappings for a truly frameless external appearance.
Material Specifications & U-Value
The extruded thermally broken aluminium perimeter frame is powder coated RAL 7016 Anthracite grey matt externally and RAL 9910 white matt internally as standard. External hip and ridge cappings are fitted for aesthetics and are powder coated RAL 7016 Anthracite grey matt to match the external perimeter frame at the base of the wall-abutting rooflight. Other RAL colour options are available upon request.
