Glazing Vision’s Ridgeglaze roof light and modular Flushglaze fixed rooflight were chosen to bring more daylight to a family home in London.
Natural light was maximised by rooflights running along the length of the extension apex. This dramatically illuminated the interior and accentuating the materials used.
To achieve this, the Ridgeglaze rooflight was double glazed with a 31.5mm silicone sealed unit comprising of a 6mm heatsoak tested toughened low-emissivity outer pane, 16mm of argon, a black warm edge silicone sealed spacer, and a 9.5mm heat-strengthened PVB Laminated inner pane.
Thicker glass was required for the multi-part Flushglaze as its flat pitch would require it to bare a heavier snow load. The optimal choice for this was a 37.5mm silicone sealed unit comprising of a 6mm heatsoak tested toughened soft coat low-emissivity outer pane, 20mm of argon, a black warm edge silicone sealed spacer, and an 11.5mm heat-strengthened PVB laminated inner pane.
“We have specified Glazing Vision’s high-quality products many times in the past” says Lucy Abercrombie of Architecture WK. This project was not without its logistical issues however, as the structure had to be built before measurements could be taken for the rooflights. Site measurements and subsequent installation were co-ordinated carefully by Glazing Vision and the architects.
