The Best Quality
Please be aware that our Korniche Roof Lantern are delivered unglazed and will require assembly on-site, with the glass delivered separate to the frame.
Double glazed glass Korniche roof lanterns are designed with slimline frame features to create a large amount of light into your room. They come with self cleaning glass as standard with a variety of different tints available such as sunshade blue.
Korniche products are fast and easy to install. Being one of the last pieces of the puzzle to most construction projects, this glass rooflight is great for flat roof extensions for both domestic and commercial settings. It will go from our shop to you in sections, with installation speed considered. It has a slim traditional finish, designed for the thermal, natural and light market. To complete the performance profiles of our glass roof products, we offer a range of flat glass types.
This roof lantern has been optimised to create one of the strongest yet stiffest products available to buy on the UK market, ensuring that minimal obscurity occurs to let the light beam into your home. Boasting of being able to survive most things mother nature can throw at it and to put this into real perspective, a 6000mm by 4000mm roof lantern can support over 8 tonnes.
Once installed, your powder-coated, glazed lantern will be fully weather resistant, with self-cleaning glass to reduce maintenance even further.
Specially designed to remain cleaner for longer, our self-cleaning glass features a transparent coating that breaks down dirt using the sun’s ultra-violet rays, which is then washed away by any rain.
The highly durable coating is integrated into the external surface of the glass. It will still require the occasional clean in line with the glass manufacturer’s instructions, but at far longer intervals compared to conventional glass.
We offer more than 150 colours in matt, satin or gloss, including the option to have different colours on the inside and outside of the frames.
This gives you greater freedom to match both the interior and exterior style of your property.
What is Ambi ‘self clean’ glass?
The Ambi range of self cleaning glass combines both self cleaning and solar control properties, making them highly desirable amongst homeowners looking for the ultimate in glass solutions. The coating that is applied to the glass breaks down organic dirt and by doing so reduces the adhesion of inorganic dirt. Water droplets are spread out to form a sheet and this picks up the loosened dirt particles as it drains off the surface. The result is remarkable and a difference you can actually see.
What does U Value mean?
Thermal transmittance, also known as U-value, is the rate of transfer of heat through the glass. It is measured as watts per square meter Kelvin or W/m²K. The better the insulation, the lower the U-value is.
Why does aluminium need to be thermally broken?
Aluminium like all metals is a conductor of heat. If our profiles weren’t thermally broken the inside heat would be wicked away and lost to the colder outside. By creating a profile assembled with polyamide sections between the inside and outside portions, the ‘thermal bridge’ is stopped. Polyamide is a glass filled plastic meaning it is an insulator and therefore there is virtually no conduction of heat through it.
What are the benefits of powder coat verses wet paint?
Powder coating provides better performance than wet paint—it is more resistant to chipping, scratching, and other wear because of the thermal bonding it undergoes during curing, and because it can be applied in much thicker layers. This performance is especially important for outdoor products, like aluminium glazed products.
In addition to its physical toughness, powder coating provides superior colour retention. Long term exposure to moisture, sunlight, and heat breaks down the resins found in both paint and powder coating. This process, known as chalking, causes resin and pigment particles to lose adhesion. Affected particles form a chalk-like layer on the coating surface.
The early stages of chalking merely give the coating a faded appearance, but severe chalking will eventually erode the coating enough to compromise surface protection. The rate of chalking depends on the resiliency of the resin. Polyester based powder coatings are frequently used as topcoats due to their exceptional chalk resistance.
