The Roofdome modular rooflights are high quality, durable thermoformed roof lights. They are available in a wide range of sizes, shapes and glazing options to suit virtually any requirement. Roof domes are made from polycarbonate, which has an impact strength of up to 250 times greater than glass.
A key feature of the Roofdome polycarbonate rooflight is the patented high security screwbolt, supplied factory fitted as standard. Once installed, the fixing cannot be removed using common tools. The screwbolt therefore provides a high level of resistance to tampering or forced entry. The fixing is sleeved within the body of the screwbolt which avoids pressure being exerted on the rooflight glazing. Roofdomes are ‘out-of plane’ rooflights, and provided they are specified with polycarbonate glazing, can be deemed to be ‘non-fragile’.
Polycarbonate Roofdomes have been awarded BBA Certificate No. 00/4691 and are manufactured to ISO 9001 in accordance with European standards and hold a CE mark according to EN 1873. Polycarbonate roof lights have undergone large body impact testing by an independent accredited test organisation and test certificates are available to demonstrate compliance to an energy level of 1200 Joules when tested to pr EN 1873, and ACR(M)001: 2005 to Class B. They have also undergone hard body impact testing according to NBN EN 13964:2007. Roofdome rooflights, upstands, hinged opening frames and rotating ventilators are certified as providing adequate resistance to precipitation, according to EN 1873 – Weather tightness.
When installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, they are expected to exceed the life of the roof covering. The products are guaranteed against the effects of defective design, materials or construction for ten years, subject to certain conditions.
