What Is A Walk On Rooflight

21/11/2020

This blog will answer many of the questions you have about Walk On Rooflights, such as what is a walk-on rooflight, what are the benefits of a walk-on rooflight, what are the different options and how to buy one. We will also be showcasing some of the wow factor installations we have had in the past below!

Walk-on rooflights can give the wow-factor to any internal or external space and have many of the benefits that Rooflight Solutions rooflights bring.

WHAT IS A WALK ON ROOFLIGHT?

Walk-on rooflights are flush-fitting glass panels than can fit onto flat roofs or even be fitted into the floor, unlocking the potential or a terrace or dark basement without sacrificing usable space.

The glass used in walk-on glass rooflights is designed to withstand regular footfall in the UK in accordance with BS EN 1991-1-1-1:2002, which requires walk on glass to withstand 1.5 kN per meter squared of uniform loading and 2 kN of point loading. In short, the glass is safe for you and your friends, family and children to walk on!

Walk-on rooflights combine technology and safety, and Rooflight Solutions offers both internal and external options so that you can be sure to have a solution that fits your needs!

WALK ON ROOFLIGHT BENEFITS

Walk-on rooflights have many of the same benefits that all of Rooflight Solutions rooflight products have, including:

  • Increased light incidence into your home, making the rooms feel more spacious
  • Improved mood and mental health of the occupants
  • Sleek design and thermal efficiency

On top of this, walk-on rooflights have some distinct benefits which place them in front of many rooflights on the market, including:

  • Added wow factor: Having walk-on glass in your home adds that extra wow factor for yourself and all your guests, family and friends to enjoy.
  • Internal room connectivity: Having rooflights between floors in homes adds an extra connection "feel" between floors, allowing them to feel more spacious and share light across each other.
