Get the job done : Product of the Month - Skypod
Let's talk Skypod
With autumn now in full swing and the short winter days not far away, homeowners may be considering ways to maximise the amount of natural light entering their properties. So, taking the spotlight for October’s Product of the Month is our Skypod lantern roof range.
Coming in three different designs the Skypod range offers customers the opportunity to draw natural light into their homes, with either two bar or three bar styles. Without any crestings or finials on the roof, the range delivers clean lines and lots of natural light, while also increasing the height of the room too.
Skypod ‘standard’ and SkypodSQ both come with a fixed 20o roof pitch. This makes them suitable for installation in a number of different positions around the house, including flat-roofed extensions, orangeries, kitchen-diners and garage conversions.
With SkypodSQ, sight lines are perfectly balanced due to its simple but ingenious four-hip design, allowing in more natural light than conventional designs of equivalent surface area. Designed with the installer in mind, SkypodSQ can also be fitted quickly and accurately as they don't require any mitring or awkward angles cutting; they are simply assembled and screwed into place using the pre-drilled screw holes. This fast installation time makes them the perfect product for when you are trying to complete an installation in between autumn showers.
Skypod Acute features a steeper 350 pitch, making it ideal for commercial installations such as schools, colleges, hospitals and offices. It comes with the same stylish, narrow glazing bars and generous sightlines; on sizes up to 1.5m x 2.75m no sidebars are needed offering maximum natural light intake and perfect sightlines.
Designed to be the best...
The entire Skypod range is fitted with self-cleaning, temperature-controlled glass in Blue, Neutral, Bronze and Clear as standard, with a U-value of 1.0W/m²K achievable. This is further enhanced with both a thermally broken ridge and thermally broken ring beam that helps to create a virtually condensation free fitting. Each of the lanterns in the range also comes with a purpose-designed, smaller secure-fix rafter cap and internal boss to deliver an enhanced finish.
