Opening Rooflights

Opening rooflights provide a combination of style, versatility and practicality. Offered in both electric and manual opening, these rooflights are excellent for providing ventilation as well as light. Unlike access rooflights, opening skylights only open far enough to allow optimal airflow rather than roof access. Opening rooflights provide the perfect solution to a number of issues which you may have, including lack of natural light, ventilation and condensation.

Why use opening skylights?

Opening rooflights are an effective way of providing enhanced lighting whilst also offering the ability to increase ventilation. This can be achieved with either our manual or electric opening rooflights. If you have a room with a high ceiling then our electric opening rooflights will be the perfect solution.

How do rooflights open?

Opening rooflights are available in both manual and automatic models. An automatic rooflight can be opened through the use of a switch or remote, a switch will be included as standard with an opening rooflight installation. This is particularly beneficial if the rooflight will be installed on a high-ceiling, where regular access would be difficult. 

Manual opening rooflights are operated through the use of a pole, which can be provided with the installation. Manual opening rooflights offer an easy ventilation solution that does not require tampering with the building pre-existing wiring to install.

Opening rooflights are also important to provide your building with increased ventilation. Read our blog ‘Why is Roof Ventilation Important?’ for more information.

Can opening rooflights be used as a means of access?

Opening rooflights are not suitable as a means of access, as they are only capable of opening enough to provide ventilation to the room. Some opening rooflights can open fully for maintenance access, but these should not be used for regular access. If you require regular access to your roof space, you should consider installing an Access Hatch Rooflight.

Great service from the team. Easy to order, good buying guidance and clear install instructions for my builder. Rooflights look absolutely great! The team at TGS couldn't have been more helpful in organising a smaller delivery vehicle to help with restricted access. Highly recommend TGS.

I was spending a lot of money on several rooflights so I wanted to make sure I got it right and I did. The professionalism, expertise and the quality of the roof lanterns really set Toughened Glass Systems apart.

The glass balustrade gives us an amazing view onto the lake outside. So happy we ended up going for the frameless glass balcony from Toughened Glass Systems instead of one with posts

My job is to design the interiors for a lot of houses and a lot of times the hardest part was when the client wanted some really inexpensive rooflights that should look like some contemporary ones as well. That until I found Toughened Glass Systems and started working with them more and more. They have a lot of this kind of stuff at a very decent price, a price for anyone I can say. If you’re looking for cheap skylights for flat roofs or any types of roof lights, they probably have something for you.
