The Em-Glaze Modular Ridgelight range from Whitesales has been specifically designed and engineered to create the ideal ridgeline skylight into building designs. The new stock – with six standard sizes available for fast delivery - feature unfaltering structural strength, elegant low-profile framework and increased glazing to maximise the amount of natural light penetrating the interior.
The design success is the result of the maximum-daylight, minimal-frame ethos that’s applied across the Em-Glaze range. Extremely slim aluminium framework ensures that the glazing – the area that really matters to the building occupants – is the primary feature. Structural integrity is the most important factor in any construction material and the ridgelight has been engineered to comply with severe weather ratings – including wind loads of 1.32 Kn/m2 and snow loads of 1.0 kn/m2. In simple terms, the ridgelight will withstand the worst conditions the UK ever faces, including in coastal regions. The BBA, who conducted the tests, even stated that the loads were the highest ever tested on a conservatory-style roof.
With safety assured, Whitesales’ engineers focused on sustainability and versatility. The potential for solar gain is easily offset with a choice of fixed, permanent and adjustable ventilation options and a blue solar tint option. Acoustic and thermal insulation, already exceeding regulations, can be enhanced with triple glazing for even better environmental performance. The Em-Glaze Ridgelight’s elegant low-profile frame can blend into the background or be specified in a wide range of RAL colours to create a dramatic design statement. The interior-facing frame can even be specified in a different colour to the exterior. Whitesales’ Ridgelights can be ordered from stock in one of the six standard sizes or made to measure for a fully bespoke design, ensuring the perfect fit for your building project.
