This contemporary roof lantern is from the fantastic Atlas line and uses an innovative model that benefits from the latest design and production technologies and is presented in a stunning, sleek appearance. Unlike the regular lantern from Atlas (also available here at Roofing Megastore), this variation has been produced using far fewer glazing bars, giving you a far clear view of the sky above while still benefitting from the secure, reliable Atlas lantern production methods. This truly is a window that will catch the eye from inside and outside your home.
What is the Glazing Made From?
The Atlas contemporary lantern window is made from glass, designed to be as crystal clear as possible. This makes it virtually invisible even on sunnier days where heavy light reflection would be far more obvious on other roof windows. Each of the four sections of glass feature two panels, creating the classic double-glazing style that is popular the world over. In between these panels is an argon gas-filled cavity, guaranteeing an excellent level of insulation.
What is the Frame Made From?
The frame of this lantern has been created using some of the highest quality aluminium available and offers additional support for your window. Robust and durable, this material has been used in order to achieve a sleek, subtle appearance that minimises obstruction of light flowing through your window.
Not only this, but the glazing bars of this window are an outstanding 70% slimmer than most other roof lanterns from competing brands. This gives you a window with clean, sharp bars that make this a perfect-looking extension to your ceiling that looks fantastic from both outside and inside.
Which Rooms is this Roof Lantern Best Suited For?
This Atlas Roof Lantern is extremely versatile and can be installed in a wide variety of rooms, giving them a grander character and illuminating them immensely. Kitchens, living rooms and even summerhouses are all ideal candidates in which to apply to this window, and because it lets in so much light due to the incredibly slim rafters, it is perfect for use in darker rooms in need of a major light source.
Their unique appearance not only lights up the room but makes it look larger as well, not mention adding to the overall aesthetic of your home both inside and out
These windows can be used on both the upper and lower floors. They are great additions to extensions, conservatories and more, and when placed in the middle of a roof, they add a symmetrical effect to the structure of your room.
Is this Roof Lantern Well Insulated?
The Atlas Contemporary Roof Lantern also benefits from some of the best insulation available on the market. The double-glazing assures that the room will retain heat in those colder winter months. This is also due to the presence of argon gas in between the glass panels, as argon is far better at conserving heat than oxygen is.
One of the more notable drawbacks of most roof lights is that they can sometimes lead to a room becoming extremely hot in the summer, sometimes to the extent that it is uncomfortable to enter said room. The Atlas range benefits from low E insulation, which helps to lessen the negative impact that befalls most other brands during peak heat season. On top of this, the U-value of the lantern can be as low as 1.2 w/m2k (glass and frame), helping it to stand out from the competition.
How Much Light Does This Roof Lantern Let in?
With the thinner glazing bars, the Atlas Contemporary Roof Lantern is one of the clearest available, and thus allows for a virtually unrivaled amount of light to enter the room. It’s size and shape also allow for a remarkably expansive, soothing look into the sky above, and with this level of light transmission, you can be assured that this lantern will illuminate even the darkest of rooms with calming, satisfying sunlight.
What Sizes is This Roof Lantern Available In?
Multiple sizes are available for this roof lantern. The sizes are 1m x 1.5m, 1m x 2m, 1.5m x 2m, 1.5m x 2.5m, and 1.5m x 3m. These 5 sizes give you the freedom to choose the best scale for your particular project. No matter which size you go for, the full Atlas lantern experience will be open to you, complete with the superb double-glazing, considerable versatility, and extensive light levels, not to mention the wonderful minimalist extern design with flush glazing, topping off the brand’s broad array of benefits.
Does This Roof Lantern Come With a Kerb?
No Kerb is provided with the Atlas Contemporary Lantern. A kerb will need to prepared and ready onsite in order to carry out the application of the window to your property successfully. Preferably, this should be built and installed by a professional builder. This is a crucial part of the preparation for your window and will ensure that it retains a top performance for an extended length of time. Plus, once the window is installed, it will require very little maintenance and will look pristine for years after installation.
Do I Need Planning Permission to Install this Lantern?
Planning permission is often one of the trickier parts of any construction project, and one of the complications of it is that guidelines vary depending on the part of the country you are located in. Thus, there is no real way to be absolutely sure of whether or not you will need planning permission for your roof lantern unless you contact your local council directly. It is always recommended, and crucial, that you check your local rules regarding planning permission and building requirements, be this online or via your local council.
How Secure is This Roof Lantern?
Security is a top concern for homeowners across the country, and Atlas are very attuned to this fact. They have produced their roof lanterns with strong, robust double-glazed glass that is not only excellent at insulation and the reduction of sound pollution, but is also remarkably secure, especially hen compared to standard glazing. Because it is far stronger than the standard window, it is very unlikely to shatter even when under extreme force or pressure and it is securely fixed to trim, and therefore the roof. This glass is extremely difficult to remove, which will keep you, your property and your belongings safe and sound from potential intruders.
What is the Guarantee on this Roof Lantern?
Your window will serve you well, long after installation. This is a fact that Atlas are confident in, and have included a 10-year guarantee with their roof lights and lanterns so you can be as confident as they are.
