Rooflights

Howells rooflights are constructed from aluminium, and are fully thermally broken giving superior thermal efficiency coupled with low maintenance and stylish design. We offer quality powder coated finishes to any standard RAL colour of your choice including dual colour (i.e. internal/external different colours).

Different internal and external profile finishes are available including square, ornate and raked features to suit your application. Our rooflights are made to your specific size with pitches ranging from 15 to 45 degrees (30 degrees is our standard).

Adding vertical windows to create a true lantern rooflight gives a more traditional heritage look. Vertical window height is variable and allows top-hung opening vents to be situated within the windows

Our pyramid rooflights are made to the same high standards as all our rooflight systems. As with our double hipped rooflights pitches from 15 to 45 degrees are avaliable. Manufactured to your required size and specification.

As with all our rooflights, octagons are made to measure with all your choice of specifications available. We can also supply Howells Glazing trapazoidal roof vents for pyramids/octagon rooflights, eliminating extra bars required to house square vents.

Vents

Howells Glazing have developed their own vent system, to slot within their roof patent glazing bars. They have been designed to accommodate all types of roof patent glazing applications, utilising single glass or double glazing to suit customer requirements.

The system comprises roof mounted pneumatic, electrically operated opening ventilators connected to a remote control panel or manual worm gear controlled operation using an operating pole

They come in various options such as smoke ventilators. These are designed to aid the safe evacuation of premises where the system has been installed. All ventilators comply with the recommendations of BS 7346 part1. Accreditation certificate on the test carried out at Warrington Fire Research Centre is available for inspection upon request.

The system also provides for the ventilators to be used on a day to day basis to provide natural ventilation if required. If inclement weather prevails the system can incorporate rain sensors to automatically close the ventilators.

Note! The fire signal is master and will override all other signals.

All our glazing bars from Howells Glazing are made from Aluminium and therefore we are able to offer Polyester Powder Coating of all the visible framework to offers a range of colour variations to compliment most design applications. We offer powder coating from the standard range of any standard colour within the RAL range. We can offer single or dual colour choices (internal different to external colours).

To help you narrow down your colour choice we have provided a download option for the standard RAL colours available. The list shows all the standard range together with relevant RAL numbers underneath. Please note that these are provided as an initial guide only.

The polyester powder can be supplied in a matt, semi gloss or full glass finish however a matt finish tends to be more popular due its smooth, low reflective surface. Please ensure that the gloss level and reference specified is that of a standard colour (non standard colour and gloss finish combinations do cost extra).

Polyester powder coating is achieved by the spraying of the polyester powder resin onto a statically charged section (the charge determines the thickness of the coating). A minimum of 40 microns should be specified (60 and 80 microns optional). Once complete the polyester is baked onto the surface within an oven at high temperature and then left to cool before handling, it is at the point that the polyester powder coated finish provides a smooth durable surface layer.
