Highest-spec flat rooflights now best on the market for energy efficiency
neo Advance, the stunning new double-glazed flat rooflight from The Rooflight Company, achieves the lowest possible U-value thanks to its aluminium frame and innovative Thermal Shield technology.
The Rooflight Company, the UK’s leading high-spec rooflight manufacturer renowned for its sleek and traditional designs wrought from steel and manufactured in the UK, has launched neo Advance – the latest product in its neo range and the first window system it has manufactured from extruded aluminium.
The Rooflight Company’s neo range of flat and pitched rooflights has already been the rooflight of choice for architects and discerning property developers and self-builders since its launch in 2009 owing to its frameless appearance. However, like most rooflights on the market, they require triple glazing to improve their energy efficiency.
Now, neo Advance’s aluminium frame combined with the company’s patented Thermal Shield technology improves thermal efficiency and protects against mould and condensation, allowing for a whole-window U-value as low as 1.06 W/m2k in a double glazed unit, meaning the unit is significantly lighter than its triple-glazed counterpart.
It’s aluminium frame also makes it ideal for properties on the coast where the sea air accelerates the corrosion of steel window systems.
Steve Webber, Managing Director at The Rooflight Company, says, “neo Advance represents a significant step forward in The Rooflight Company’s journey.
“We started out life with one product, our Conservation Rooflight, built from steel to remain as faithful as possible to the timeless style of traditional Victorian rooflights. But we were also founded on a principle of continual improvement.
“Aluminium is a hugely versatile material for rooflight frames and, combined with our research team’s innovative improvement to thermal efficiency, it means we can deliver to the market the absolute highest-spec product possible.
“neo Advance really is a beautiful rooflight that offers a sheer and uncluttered view of the sky, but it’s also incredibly energy efficient and environmentally friendly. It’s a testament to the skill and creativity of our innovation and manufacturing teams.”
