Timber Roof Lanterns

Roof Lantern Specifications

Specifications

We have broken down the Timber Roof Lanterns specification into each of the stages of manufacture:

  • The Finials1 and crestings2 are manufactured in Aluminium.
  • Our aluminium capping system for weatherproofing uses a twin gasket system, and comes with a powder coated finish.
  • As standard the glass provided is a soft coated doubled glazed 4-16-4 toughened glass providing a U-value of 1.6. In addition to this we can provide a range of glass types from 'Solar Control' to glazed units containing special gases. Contact us for further details.
  • The rafter section is 44mm and has a hand crafted Roman OG3 detail carved into every timber section.
  • The hand crafted centre boss's provide a traditional centre piece to every hip section.
  • All timber roof lantern components clip together, providing an easy fit and screw-less system.
  • Ring beams and Eaves beams are designed in a range of sizes to allow easy installation onto standard 'up stand' openings.
  • Corner posts, sills and ring beams interface together using a unique gasket system which requires minimal screws and a silicone free installation.
  • All Prestige Roof Lantern components are fully refinished using the latest micro-porous technology in white, although any one off colour, RAL/BS4 or Farrow & Ball stain can be painted with an additional cost. Contact us for further details.
  • We use Sapele or Oak as our preferred choice of timbers, providing only the finest furniture grade hardwood available on the market.
