We’re proud to design and manufacture roof light systems for some of the UK’s leading architects, developers and home builders. Together with our door and window systems, we understand that roof light specification plays an integral role in sustainable building design.
Every GFS rooflight is entirely bespoke and designed to meet both the exact specifications and rigorous demands of public sector, commercial and residential builds.
From initial CAD planning through to delivery direct to site, our manufacturing expertise and flexibility means that we can work with you to enhance virtually any roofline. We offer both one-off designs and standard solutions including:
Flat glass roof lights
Pyramid roof lights
Barrel vaulted roof lights
Yorkshire roof light and glazing systems
We know that daylighting is a key factor within building design and construction. Our roof lights are cleverly engineered to maximise natural light, improving visual comfort, human performance and the general wellbeing of building occupants.
GFS roof lights and glazing systems are manufactured to BSxxxx and play a crucial role in supporting environmentally considerate building design. The financial, environmental and sustainability benefits are clear; increasing natural light in both residential and commercial buildings reduces energy usage and thereby lowers environmental impact and cost.
Our roof lights are available in a range of finishes
Aluminium Roof lights
In terms of material attributes, aluminium is a particularly versatile material and can be used to great effect to fabricate a range of roof light styles to fit virtually any architectural style.
Lightweight, strong, extremely resistant to the elements and always manufactured to BSxxxx. All GFS aluminium roof lights are made to order and available in styles from the more standard, fixed flat and pyramid, to completely bespoke and irregular shapes, designed to give buildings a unique character. Harmonising aluminium doors and aluminium windows are also available.
Hybrid Roof lights
Hybrid roof lights combine the durable characteristics of outer aluminium frames, with the internal aesthetics of real wood. Available in a range of responsibly sourced timber finishes, GFS hybrid roof lights are custom designed to enhance the rooflines of any property style. Thanks to the slimmer profiles made possible with aluminium structures, hybrid roof lights can carry glazed areas up to xxxxm x xxxxxm, flooding rooms with natural light and creating a striking interior feature. Harmonising hybrid doors and hybrid windows are also available.
Steel Roof lights
Strong and sustainable, the visual characteristics of steel roof lights make them particularly suitable for installation in conservation areas, or when enhancing period properties. Incorporating advanced, energy efficient glazing and slim sills for a discreet appearance, GFS steel roof lights can be manufactured to complement architectural styling and to meet specific building consent conditions, often associated with building or renovating properties within protected developments or conservation areas. Harmonising steel doors and steel windows are also available.
Fire Rated Roof lights
In addition to providing the outlook and light creating benefits you’d expect from a quality roof light design, GFS fire rated roof lights are manufactured using fire retardant frames and glazing to protect residents in the event of a fire.
As with our entire range of fire rated glazing solutions, GFS fire rated roof lights are certified to 30 or 60 minute integrity and meet all required building regulations and standard European safety classifications.
Corresponding fire rated doors and fire rated windows are also available.
