Measuring & Installation Guide
The Korniche Roof Lantern is custom made to your exact sizes. This product works with external upstand measurements and recommend a minimum 69mm wide upstand is used. To calculate your required size, measure the length and width from the outside edge of your timber upstand finished with roofing material.
Your external upstand dimensions should be 6mm smaller all around than the size you purchase. If you purchase a 1000mm by 1000mm from our website then your external upstand dimension should be 6mm smaller all around which would make the external upstand dimensions 988mm by 988mm. In other words add 12mm to the length and 12mm to the width over the actual upstand measurements, this is the size you’d need to purchase from us.
The height of the upstand should be 150mm and minimum width should be 69mm.
