Be Ready for Snow with Flat Fixed Rooflights

It’s that time of year when the leaves have all but disappeared from trees and the temperatures plummet; with keeping your home warm of extra importance.

Having flat fixed or lantern rooflights from Natralight is one of the best ways to control the temperature of the rooms below; plus they will add a touch of class to your home design.

In our latest blog, we are going to look at ways to determine if your rooflights have snow loading capabilities.

Three Ways to Have Pitch Perfect Skylights

1. Pitched for Resistance - The pitch of your rooflight is one of several factors that promote the self-cleaning process. Generally, the rule of thumb is that the steeper the pitch, easier it is for dirt and grime to slide off when it rains. In the case of snow, the steeper the pitch, the more difficult it becomes for it to settle and accumulate.

If you are looking for a rooflight that is resistant to snow loading, you should choose one with a steep pitch. Natralight offer glass pyramid and lantern rooflights that are both the perfect solution to this issue.

2. Durable Powder-Coating - Whether it's freezing temperatures, heavy rain, snow or ice, our previously mentioned roof lanterns are capable of coping with all of these conditions for years to come. Using an aluminium frame also means that it won't rust, even if subjected to extreme weather.

3. You Choice of Glazing - With all of the rooflights on offer at Natralight, we give our customers a number of glazing options so you can choose the solution specific to your needs. For those concerned about thermal regulation and keeping nice and toasty during the winter, choosing triple glazing will keep temperatures in your home amicable.
