'Structural Silicone Glazed Rooflights'
Aurora Electric Hinged Rooflights
Our high performance electric opening rooflights are opened by 24v electric actuators, and open the rooflight to a maximum of 300mm and can be concealed within complementary framework if required. The electric actuator is controlled by a touch sensitive switch with an in-built transformer, simplifying the electrical wiring connections. Optional extras include a rain sensor, temperature sensor and remote control.
Our rooflight are double glazed in clear toughened safety glass as standard, with options of blue, bronze or grey tinting or if preferred, an obscure finish for privacy or high performance solar control to minimise solar gain (g) and maximise light transmittance (Lt).
Our rooflights achieve outstanding thermal performance. True U-value and Ud-value available upon request.
The extruded thermally broken aluminium perimeter frame is powder coated RAL 7016 anthracite grey matt externally and RAL 9910 white matt internally as standard. Other RAL colour options are available upon request.
Our opening rooflight is easy to install, an internal perimeter gasket allows the rooflight to be placed directly on top of the builders kerb without the need for site applied silicone. It is then screwed to the builders kerb externally and a matching cover clip is then applied to conceal the fixings. A qualified electrician will be required to make the final connections to the actuator and the control system. Wiring diagrams are provided with all opening rooflights.
As standard all double glazed units incorporate clear low 'E' glass achieving a centre pane U-value of 1.1 W/m²K.
Triple glazed option available achieving a centre pane U-value of 0.6 W/m²K.
Structural silicone glazing is a method utilising a silicone adhesive to attach glass to metal. Wind loads and other loads such as snow and impact loads, are transferred from the glass through the structural silicone adhesive to the perimeter frame of the rooflight and from there onto the structure of the building. It is absolutely imperative for the long term performance of any rooflight constructed in this manner, that the silicone bond maintains its adhesive and cohesive integrity, which will be tested to extremes by wind load and thermal stresses throughout its service life.
Our contemporary product range has been created using the very latest structural silicone glazing techniques, standards of best practice in quality control. All Aurora structurally glazed rooflights are manufactured under strictly controlled conditions.
Our double glazed units incorporate a secondary silicone unit seal to prevent the delamination of the double glazed unit by UV light and are fully enclosed within the rooflights perimeter frame to minimise the risk of glass breakage. The silicone used in the edge of the double glazed unit has been thoroughly tested to ensure its compatibility with all other silicones and materials used within the construction of our rooflights.
The Low E, or low-emissivity coating to the glass is a transparent, microscopically thin metallic coating that works in two ways to economise heating energy. The dual action coating reflects the majority of heat back into the room thereby reducing the heat loss through the rooflight, and allows heat and light from the sun (known as passive solar heat gain) to pass through. These properties thus reduce the demand for energy to heat your home.
Bespoke sizes are available upon request.
Lead times vary from 5 working days to 4 weeks dependant on the size requested.
