Em-Glaze Modular flat glass rooflights are ideally suited to building projects in the education sector, having been specifically built to maximize the amount of natural daylight in any building while retaining heat. Allowing for up to 78% light transmission, Whitesales have cleverly designed these flat, sealed glass units to incorporate a fully welded aluminium frame, and as double glazed units with an argon filled cavity they also offer outstanding acoustic insulation and unsurpassed thermal insulation values of up to W/m²K .
Not only does Whitesales Em-Glaze modular range offer high-end performance, but its elegant flat rooflight design also offers an aesthetically-pleasing, unobtrusive finish to any build. With a framework that can be powder coated to any RAL colour, borders available in sandblasted, opaque or black finish to conceal the upstand and 9 stocked sizes, Whitesales’ glass modular rooflights are the perfect fit for any build or refurbishment. In addition to the sizes available in stock for fast delivery, Whitesales have an Em-Glaze continuous range, with sizes and bespoke designs, including monopitch, pyramid, gable or hip-ended, made-to-order.
Em-Glaze modular was put to the test in the education sector when Whitesales were approached to specify rooflights for a new 7-classroom extension at St Lawrence Primary School in Hassocks. The roofing contractor had a raft of specific requirements, including maximizing daylight, allowing ventilation while protecting against rain ingress and high U-Value requirements. Whitesales’ expert technical team recommended the use of 18 Em-Glaze modular rooflights, which not only fitted well with the design aesthetic, but were robust enough to allow for roof access, had comfort ventilation and rain sensors to ensure closure in rainy weather, while still offering outstanding thermal performance. The resulting build was a great success, providing a light, airy atmosphere for pupils and staff to work in.
