Hands up for easy to clean windows! For rooflights most people want self-cleaning glass, Pilkington’s patented material. However, this glass needs a minimum pitch of 30 degrees to work optimally. It can work beautifully on windows or a rooflight with a steeper pitch. Make sure to find out more about Pilkington’s glass options here Pilkingtons glass types.
A great alternative on a flat rooflight is Ritec – a solution applied to the surface of ordinary glass to make it extra slippery. It’s something I would recommend on low pitched rooflights. If you want to find out more click here https://www.ritec.co.uk/.

During the summer months it’s easy to throw the windows open and let fresh air flood into your home. But once the outdoor temperatures start to drop, how do you weigh up the importance of ventilation versus heating costs?
Firstly, why is ventilation important? According to Allergy UK, there are around 9,000 deaths a year in the UK attributed to indoor air pollution which can be 2-10 times higher than outdoor air. Dust mites, cleaning products, building and furniture materials in the home can aggravate certain conditions so it is important to minimise the risks posed by poor indoor air quality.
Howells Patent Glazing is pleased to announce the launch of its new glass rafter roof light, Ultraline.
Designed to maximise daylight, Ultraline offers architects and specifiers the freedom to use larger expanses of glass. Each joint is supported by a glass rafter, or fin, which reinforces the structure without breaking the sightline.
The low-pitch aluminium roof light is non-intrusive and typically measures 2.4 metres long and 1.2 metres wide. However, as each roof light is designed and made to order, specifiers can increase the width and depth to suit the application. Loadings are calculated by an independent glass consultant.
