Natralight Fire Rated Rooflights can be independently tested or assessed and certified to 30 or 60-minute integrity and insulation where necessary.
All Natralight Fire Rated Rooflights can be assessed and tested before installation for high-temperature resistance.
Roof lights can be manufactured with various glazing options including Walk-on specifications.

Safety glass also doesn’t provide the level of protection fire-rated glazing does, so we would strongly advise against using this as an alternative.
UK Building Regulations Approved Document B (2006 edition amended 2007) sets out the rules for fire safety of buildings. In Section B2, internal fire spread is covered and applies to linings of both the roof and walls of buildings. In general, these are the surface spread of flame requirements to BS476 Part 7 (typically Class 1 and 3) or to BS EN 13501 Part 1 (typically Class C-s3,D2 or Class D-s3,d2). Section B4 covers external fire spread and applies to external coverings or roofs and walls. Generally, these are fire resistance requirements to BS476 Part 3 (typically AA and AB) or BS EN 13501 Part 5 (usually BROOF(t4)).
