Here at Natralight, our expert technicians have decades of experience when it comes to working with structural glass roof and extension projects, and we are confident that you will love the high quality and professional finish we provide, time after time.
A structural glass roof allows plenty of natural light into your home, and as our units can be fully bespoke to your needs, our glass roofs will be a perfect match for you!
A Structural Glass Roof Can Transform Your Property
As house and land prices rise, and space is at a premium, we have needed to become creative in finding cost-effective, modern, and attractive ways to maximise available space. We have found that an elegant and simple solution to this problem is having a structural glass roof installed in your property.
A structural glass roof will fill the room with natural light, which has a number of health benefits as well as potentially improving productivity, and depending on your needs, can be used to create an alternative to brick and mortar extensions.
This flexibility in design means a structural glass roof is perfect for the home, or for commercial and industrial properties. In addition to this, we offer a unique complete service for your structural glass roof project. This means that your structural glass roof will be designed in partnership with you by our in house team, and we will also manufacture your glass feature on-site, and carry out the installation on your property.
As well as structural glass roofs and extensions, we can also tailor your new glass features to include roof terrace access, and can be made as load-bearing units which you can walk on and even drive on! Glazing options generally include single, double, triple and quadruple glazing, though almost any specification is possible - even bullet proof glass
Is a Structural Glass Roof Right for Me?
A Structural Glass Roof is the ideal addition to all kinds of buildings as they are made to your exact needs. We use a range of design and manufacturing techniques to ensure your new structural glass roof is a perfect fit, and decades of experience allow us to provide a high-quality installation service. A bespoke service allows us to offer customisation options on your structural glass roof installation. This leaves you with a glass roof installation that you’ll be able to enjoy for years to come.
Our structural glass roofs make the ideal space in the home for a bright and fresh family room or study. Having said this, they’re also perfect for all types of a commercial building, whether that’s an office building, warehouse, or a shop; they are also a popular addition for schools, colleges, and universities in the UK. We have even carried out the installation in historic venues such as Stirling Castle.
This high level of versatility and customisation allows you to get as creative as you’d like with your Structural Glass Roof installation. For example, we can match your frames to all standard RAL colours using powder coating, but can even provide special finishes when requested such as metallic. Furthermore, a host of additional features are available such as specialist glass coatings and ventilation options.
How to Choose Your Glass Specification
Not all structural glass is created equal, so choosing a specification is one way to make your glazed extension stand out from the crowd.
Here are some of the options that are available -
Solar Control Coatings - Solar control coatings are one of the biggest factors to consider if you are planning on having a glazed roof or a large glass wall. This will help control the solar gain in your extension plus it will prevent your living space from overheating on sunny days.
These coatings are completely transparent and work by reflecting the heat from the sun away from your home. You must also consider the 'G Factor' which refers to solar gain, with the higher the reduction, the cooler your home will be.
Laminated Glass - Laminates help to increase the load-bearing properties of your glass but are mainly used as a way to change the colour of the material.
By adding a coloured interlayer within the glazing, you can add a block of colour to your structure.
Heated Glass - Heated glass uses electricity to keep your structure warm, melting snow and eliminates condensation. This can also be used as an added heat source which is perfect for high ceiling properties.
