Architectural rooflight manufacturer Glazing Vision is proud to introduce its latest innovation, the Pitchglaze roof window.
The Pitchglaze is a CE marked roof window designed to be installed in pitched tiled roof applications flush with the tiling line. Glazing Vision have adopted their pioneering ‘frameless’ design ethos with this product so that when installed the building occupants can enjoy sky only views from the roof window, something not usually found with traditional roof window products.
The Pitchglaze is designed to be used in roof pitches between 15° and 60° and comprises of Qualicoat approved polyester powder coated aluminium framework combined with either double or triple glazing. The glass specification is high performance thermally efficient low emissivity (low e) coated glass which has been heat soak tested for additional safety.
The main driving force behind the development of this product was scale, most existing roof window manufacturers products are very limited in size but customers are increasingly demanding larger scale glazed sections as their desire for open plan spaces filled with natural daylight continues.
So Glazing Vision set about taking its 20 years’ experience with the flat roof skylight market and developed a product that could provide much larger expanses of glass but still retain its low profile and remain as inconspicuous as possible when installed on the roof. Based on the current design, aperture sizes of up to 3m2 are achievable.
One of the key design elements Glazing Vision wanted to focus on was improving the way that installations are carried out. Existing products on the market all involve some type of internal fixings which although convenient at the time of installation, if for any reason the roof window needs to be removed or replaced then any internal finishes are likely to be damaged or destroyed.
The Pitchglaze has been designed so that all fixings are accessible from the outside, which means that the roof window can be completely removed without affecting internal finishes and causing costly damage.
