What are roof windows or skylights?Roof windows are also known as skylights. They are suited to both pitched and flat roofs, and they let an abundance of light into your home or building. They help you ventilate your rooms, and they can be operated manually, electrically, or solar-powered.
Transform your rooms into open, sunlit spaces
Installing a roof window is like stepping into a new world. Your space is bathed in natural light, the air is fresh, and your living area becomes enchantingly different. No more artificial lighting: sunlight fills the room, casting warm, inviting glows. Soft rays play on your floors and walls, adding depth.
It's more than light; it's a newfound connection to the outdoors. A gentle breeze refreshes with natural ventilation and replaces stagnant air. It's like opening a window to nature’s soothing sounds and ambience.
This transformation is a testament to the roof window's power. It's more than a fixture; it's a gateway to a fresher, more inviting environment. You'll want to spend more time here. Welcome to your transformed living space.

You decide how to operate your roof windows
There are four main types of roof windows: Fixed, manual, electric and solar, all of which refer to the way the roof window is operated.
Our solar and electric roof windows are the ideal solution for ultimate comfort in your home.
They come with a wall switch that makes it easy to open and close the windows, as well as an integrated rain sensor that automatically closes the roof window when it starts to rain.
Our solar roof windows have the added benefit of being fuelled by the natural energy of the sun and therefore costing you no extra electricity.
Our fixed windows are ideal for places where ventilation isn’t required but you don’t want to compromise on daylight.
If you plan to add a roof window that is easily within your reach, you can opt for a manual opening.
