TGS rooflights which are both manual and electric boast an exceptional level of quality while it comes at a competitive price. It offers a centre pane U-value of 1.1W/,2K, which means that it offers an exceptional level of thermal efficiency, making it one of the best on the market.
This rooflight comes with a bottom pane of 6.4mm inner laminated glass which is different from rooflights that are offered by other competitors as they have a 6mm bottom pane. In larger rooflights, they will come with a laminated glass that is 9.5mm or 11.5mm. Laminated panes are made by taking two plies of glass and bonding a film or interlayer in between them. Should they shatter, the layer between the two plies holds the glass in place, preventing pieces of glass from falling to the floor, making it safer. If toughened glass was used, then this would shatter into pieces that could cause injury. What this means is that our rooflight with laminate glass on the bottom, provides a greater level of safety than those that have a bottom pane consisting of toughened glass only. The skylight can be easily positioned on top of the existing builder’s upstand and is manufactured to ISO 9001 industry standards in the UK.
Operated electrically or manually, it is connected to the mains power and can be operated using a wall switch while there is the option to take advantage of remote or rain sensor. This makes opening and closing the rooflight efficient.
Single or tandem actuators are used and the chosen option is dependent on the size. Smaller rooflights will use actuators that are concealed while large sizes will have an actuator that is more suited to heavy-duty use and is, therefore, exposed.
If the ventilation option is chosen, then the hit and miss trickle vents which are manually operated can provide a ventilation area that is equivalent to 8400mm2. The manual rooflight is operated using worm gear via a pole which is sold separately.
The design of the rooflight stands out with a contemporary look and a sleek design. It has a flush fitting and a slim powder-coated frame, allowing the maximum amount of light to enter the room. The framework is slim and this means that it can barely be seen after it is installed following our fitting guide. However, you should make sure that all sizes are correct prior to making payment as all orders are made to order and so, the sizes cannot be altered once we have started the manufacturing process.
A 4-degree pitch is required as a minimum with the maximum pitch being 15 degrees.
