The new Em-Dome ECO modular rooflight from Whitesales is a made-to-measure, super-insulating rooflight. Updates to building regulations invariably mean needing to achieve more challenging standards of thermal efficiency. Rooflights present both opportunity and risk. Opportunity, because a skylight can allow three times the amount of light in that would be possible with a window of the same size – boosting occupant wellbeing and reducing carbon footprint and fuel bills. Risk, because heat rises and without the best insulation your rooflight could be leaking warmth.
The new Em-Dome ECO modular is a perfect solution to this dilemma. The design incorporates layers of solid and structured polycarbonate sheets, engineered to give an exceptional U-Values as low as 0.90W/m2K. Not only is it windproof and waterproof, it has impressive acoustic insulation performance in both directions too. Where lesser products might compromise on light transmission, the Em-Dome ECO adheres firmly to Whitesales’ core mantra, ‘maximise natural light.’
It not only complies with CE EN 1873 and demonstrates U-Values in accordance with ISO 6946, but maintains levels of light transmission that meet the stipulations of ISO 13468. The result is a healthier, naturally lit interior and lower carbon footprint, electricity usage and, of course, daily energy cost. The ECO range is also safe and burglar-proof, thanks to virtually unbreakable polycarbonate sheet (with a resistance to impact 250 times greater than glass) and a patented screwbolt security fixing system that will defy the most persistent break-in attempts.
