EUROCELL BRANCHES BECOME LEADING LIGHT IN ROOFLIGHTS
Eurocell has unveiled a range of market-leading rooflights that increase the comfort of buildings and are fully compliant with Building Regulations Part L (Conservation of fuel and power).
Available to order in all Eurocell branches, the rooflights range provides customers with an effective method of maximising natural light inside buildings – one of the best ways of saving energy and reducing carbon footprints.
Fully compatible with all common flat roof waterproofing systems and can be used on new or refurbishment projects and an ‘all thermoplastic construction’ means that the rooflights have a high resistance to impact and weathering, along with long-term low maintenance properties. The extruded white PVC-U kerb can be fitted directly to the roof deck for ease of installation.
The rooflights are formed from enhanced UV protected polycarbonate with vented air spaces that help achieve a U value of 1.8W/m²K, to satisfy Part L requirements. They are offered with either fixed, worm-gear or hit and miss openings. The four part tamper-resistant fixings provide building owners with a safe, secure installation.
Eurocell rooflights have a robust wall thickness to ensure overall strength, whilst a weather seal on all opening rooflights maintains weather tightness. A special ‘key’ finish to the PVC-U kerb assists adhesion of the roof membrane and the PVC-U kerb is torch–on system friendly.
Chris Coxon, Head of Marketing at Eurocell, said: “We expect our new rooflight range to open up a number of market opportunities for our branch customers. Being a tough, Building Regulations-compliant solution means that customers can have confidence that they will perform over the long-term.”
The new range should create sales opportunities for Eurocell branch customers in a wide range of sectors. In housing, rooflights are increasingly being used on flat-roof extensions, and hallways as an additional feature to increase comfort. In Education, Building Bulletin 90: Lighting Design for Schools offers specific guidance on natural lighting and rooflights. It recommends that during daylight hours, natural lighting should be the main source of illumination.
The ability of Eurocell rooflights to increase natural light levels inside all buildings means that they are particularly suitable for communal spaces in corridors, atriums and reception areas within both the public and private sector. They are commonly used in buildings with IT equipment as the glare from windows can make it difficult to read PC screens. Products can be delivered in two parts for easy handling and more efficient installation.
Eurocell Building Plastics branches offer a range of more than 4,000 quality building plastics products. This includes PVC-U roofline, rainwater systems, interior skirting and cladding products, along with window finishing trims, doors, conservatories, and hand tools. Adding rooflights to the range extends the one-stop-shop offer for customers.
With 125+ Eurocell Building Plastics branches nationally, the network has become an essential destination for high quality, excellent service and value for money with both trade and DIY customers, with FREE delivery in 24 hours available*.
