Flushglaze eaves rooflight adds light to stunning Nottingham property

Flushglaze eaves rooflight adds light to stunning Nottingham property

As the owners of this East Midlands property desired a sun-lit environment that maintained a connection to the night sky, Glazing Visions Flushglaze Eaves Rooflight and Flushglaze Flat Rooflight were chosen as they wont compromise on security and privacy.

The Eaves rooflight offers both clerestory and top lighting via two or more glazed sections joined together with a structural silicone seal and installed within the eaves of the property using Glazing Vision’s standard wall abutment detail.

With such an increase in sunlight, several protective measures were needed. One piece was comprised of a 32.8mm silicone sealed double glazed unit with a heat-soak treated toughened outer pane and 14mm of argon. The laminated inner pane lowers emissivity, UV transmittance and noise pollution.

Navigating the complexities of glass specification is no easy feat, however, Glazing Vision were able to offer guidance on this and related technical matters, helping to create a painless process for AM2 Architects throughout the project.

Indoors, the Flushglaze eaves gives an unhindered view of the surrounding landscape, as well as a much-needed connection to the sky. A flat roof mounted Flushglaze unit was also installed within the master bedroom but with an integrated electric blackout blind for when required, creating that home observatory feel.

Jonathan Metcalfe, director of AM2 Architects spoke highly of the “efficient and painless” installation process of both the Eaves rooflight and the flat Flushglaze rooflight, but more importantly, the inhabitants of this modern marvel were “delighted with the end result”.
