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.

Measuring and Installation guide

Please see fitting instructions below and downloadable PDF link at the bottom of this page.

Please note size you purchase from our website drop down menu is based on the finished external upstand dimensions. If you purchase a 1000mm by 1000mm from our website then your external upstand dimension would be 1000mm by 1000mm. We have 40mm tolerance all around built into our sizes so if your external dimensions were 1040mm by 1040mm this would still fit. The width of your upstand should be 75mm wide.

Our rooflight is supplied complete with uPVC frame that fixes to top of builders upstand and houses any opening equipment.

Acceptable tolerance:

– Opening Glass Rooflight = rooflight size +40/-20mm

Please note self-clean option is only offered with some sizes and only works effectively at pitches of 10 degrees and above.

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.

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.
