Rooflight manufacturer, Roof Maker, has gained the Passive House Standard for its fixed flat rooflight.
A Passive House Standard can be awarded to a building, component or individual that meets the criteria of the standard – which aims to dramatically reduce energy use and carbon emissions from buildings in the UK, as well as providing high standards of comfort and building health.
“By bringing another Passive House Component to the market, Roof Maker has helped facilitate the superior quality for which the Passive House Standard is known and added to the ever-expanding range of options for clients looking to build better,” commented a spokesperson from the International Passive House Association.
Paul Mildenstein, CEO of Roof Maker said: “To have created the world’s first and only fixed flat rooflight to be accredited by the International Passive House Association is a fantastic achievement not only for ourselves but for the glazing industry as a whole. We have worked closely with the Passive House team, from the initial design concept stage, right through to the manufacturing process, to ensure we’ve created a rooflight that is as thermally efficient as possible.
“We are not only committed to providing homeowners with the highest standard in rooflights, but also supporting architects and installers with products that can be easily specified. This is why the fixed flat rooflight features our triple glazing, rather than the four or five panes of glass you may expect, as this allows installers to fit the product in the easiest and quickest way, whilst still offering unrivalled thermal benefits.”
The fixed flat rooflight, available up to 3sq metres, has undergone a range of tests and processes by the Passive House organisation, including thermal imagery examinations, to prove it helps to provide constant and consistent temperatures throughout the home.
Designed with high quality marine grade powder coated Aluminum frame technology and impressive unit seals, Roof Maker offers a 20-year glass unit guarantee.
