Creating Your Perfect Space With Custom Rooflights

Published: 12th January 2023

When designing your living or working space, more natural light plays a vital role in enhancing the overall ambience and mood. A custom rooflight design offers an ideal solution to infuse your space with abundant natural light, creating a welcoming and inviting atmosphere.

From the type of glaze to the dimensions, frame colour, glass tint, border options, and extras like solar panel glass or acoustic glass, each choice contributes to a unique and tailored outcome. 

This blog will explore the various aspects of custom roof lights and how they can help you create your perfect space.

Type Of Glaze

Choosing the correct type of glaze is crucial as it directly impacts your space’s insulation, light diffusion, and overall energy efficiency. There are primarily 2 types of glazes commonly used for roof lights:

Double Glazing

This standard option consists of two layers of glass separated by a spacer bar to create an insulating air gap. It offers good thermal performance, reducing heat loss and preventing condensation.

Triple Glazing

For those seeking maximum insulation, triple glazing is the perfect solution. With an extra layer of glass, it provides even better thermal efficiency and helps in noise reduction.

Dimensions (Length x Width)

Bespoke rooflights can be manufactured to fit the exact dimensions of your space. The length and width of the window are crucial to ensure the right amount of natural light reaches your interior all year round. 

A well-proportioned roof light can open up the room and provide a stunning view of the sky above.

So, whether you desire a small, cosy rooflight to add a touch of warmth and charm to your space or a custom extra-large roof light that floods your room with abundant natural light and creates a grand statement, rest assured that we have the expertise to tailor a custom solution just for you.

Frame Colour

The frame colour of your custom roof light can significantly impact the aesthetics of your space. Whether you prefer a classic white frame that seamlessly blends with the ceiling or a bold black frame that creates a striking contrast, the choice is yours. The frame colour can also complement the overall interior and exterior design theme.

Glass Tint Color

Glass tint colour adds a touch of sophistication and can control the amount of sunlight and heat entering your space. Clear glass allows maximum light penetration, while tinted options like blue, green, or bronze can reduce glare and UV rays. The glass tint colour can also influence the room’s overall ambience, offering a serene or vibrant atmosphere.


The border of the custom roof light refers to the design around the edges of the glazing. It can range from minimalistic thin borders to more elaborate designs, depending on your preference and the architectural style of your space. Borders add a decorative element, enhancing the visual appeal of your roof light.

Extras (Solar Panel Glass, Acoustic Glass, High-Security Glass, Low Iron Glass)

To further customise your roof light, you can opt for various extras that cater to specific needs:

Solar Panel Glass

This ingenious addition allows your roof light to harness solar energy, reducing energy consumption and lowering utility costs. It is an eco-friendly solution that contributes to a greener environment.

Acoustic Glass

If your space is located in a noisy environment, acoustic glass can be an excellent choice. It effectively reduces outside noise, providing a peaceful and serene atmosphere indoors.

High-Security Glass

For added safety and security, high-security glass is a wise investment. It is designed to withstand impact and forced entry attempts, ensuring the protection of your space and its occupants.

Low Iron Glass

This type of glass has a reduced iron content, making it exceptionally clear and almost colourless. It allows maximum light transmission, making it perfect for spaces where abundant natural light is desired.

Prefabricated Insulated Kerb

The insulated kerb is the base on which the roof light sits and is essential for proper installation and insulation. Prefabricated insulated kerbs are tailor-made for your specific roof light, ensuring a perfect fit and maximum energy efficiency.
