Kestrel lantern rooflight system – designed to be fabricator friendly

Kestrel Aluminium Systems are continuing to roll out their new product development portfolio with the introduction of a Lantern Rooflight system.

The new lantern is both stylish and practical, designed to meet the needs of the modern home using environmentally friendly materials delivering superior aesthetics creating crisp clean lines.

The innovative and practical lantern rooflight has been designed to be fabricator friendly with the absence of compound mitre cuts as a result of the fixed pitches. The thermally efficient system has been created to be aesthetically pleasing with fuss-free low line ridges and round edged glazing bars to create a softer and more contemporary appearance.

Once installed the secure lantern rooflight maximises natural light providing an elegant appeal to any home, orangery or extension whilst enhancing the owners’ lifestyle. The corner joints are performed with mechanical cleats with the aid of punch tooling to each of the corners of the lantern rooflight.

Ian Osborne, Technical Manager explains “The jointing system makes site assembly possible meaning transportation and manual handling of the materials onto the roof become easier. Additionally we have designed the eaves profiles with a render stop, allowing internal finishes to be brought up to the underside of the lantern rooflight to provide a neat slick finish.

The hip bars and glazing bars are supplied pre-machined to fit neatly against the eaves profiles. Only one square cut is required to achieve the correct bar length before the assembly of each hip/glazing bar reducing fabrication time”.
