Timber Roof Lantern
This lantern was fitted onto a kitchen extension where windows were limited so the solution was a beautiful Timber Roof Lantern by Medina Joinery. The great thing about introducing a roof lantern or wooden skylight into any scheme is that you can flood the space with light where windows are limited due to the proximity of other buildings. A Roof Lantern can also maintain an element of privacy and have a stunning focal point. There are number of additions that can be incorporated into our roof lanterns, we can fit both manual and electrically operated roof vents to give great ventilation in the warmer months, these can also have climate control to shut them in the event of rain. The other option is to have sidelight windows, which can given an added level of grandeur, and allow for opening side windows and give even more light.
All our roof lanterns are manufactured from hardwood in our workshop where each element is hand finished then painted with a micro-porous spray applied coating. Shortly before the delivery the lantern is fully assembled and checked, then fitted with the weather gasket that sits between the timber and the double glazed units. The aluminum capping is then cut to size and wrapped ready to be fitted on site. Medina Joinery can arrange for your Roof Lantern to be installed by a team of specialist fitters if required.
The key to creating a waterproof warm Roof Lantern is the quality of the double glazed units. All our double glazed units are supplied with toughened glass as standard. The inner pane has a coating of Planitherm which is a special coating to reflect heat that you generate back into your home, rather than allowing it to escape through your windows. This coating also allows free heat from natural daylight to pass through the glass giving you solar gain, warming the room for free and saving you money. The gap between the two layers of glass is 16mm and filled with Argon gas under vacuum conditions to improve insulation and prevent condensation within the unit.
We can also offer the option of solar controlled glass. For this we offer Pilkington Activ™ Blue which is an on-line coated body-tinted, self-cleaning and medium performance solar control glass in an attractive blue colour. Its surface self-cleaning coating has photo-catalytic and hydrophilic properties. The unique blue colour helps to keep internal temperatures cool whilst still maintaining excellent light transmittance, low light reflection and high energy absorption.
