Why Should I Choose Sliding Rooflights?

For larger areas with plenty of unobstructed roof space, you can ensure your property gets maximum natural light with a sliding rooflight from Natralight.

With this type of skylight, the glazed section slides as a single leaf and is supported by tracks on the roof itself in the open position. Forming a vital part of the framework. these allow more scope in terms of size and specification plus you get a 100% clear opening. 

Our sliding rooflights include the main security features you will get with a standard flat fixed rooflight and is operated using the same rack and pinion mechanism with a one-way clutch system. 

We can also supply sliding skylights complete with a remote control which is connected to a rain sensor, thermostat and home automation system. This means if the weather turns one day when your rooflight is open, it can be closed quickly. 

Natralight would recommend seeking advice from building control before starting works on site, as flat sliding rooflights can only be installed if suitable balustrades are also installed.
