About National Domelight Company Skylights And Their Suitability

There are a great range of skylights available from a simple standard size polycarbonate skylight to automatically opening power operated smoke vents fully integrated into a buildings fire systems. Even the terminology can be a bit confusing; it does not matter if you prefer to call them skylights, roof windows or anything else, our expertise is at your disposal.

Where natural daylight is neccessitated in a building there is a skylight for every situation. You can also get solid aluminium (and steel) skylights that can open for ventilation and/or smoke dispersal, and skylights with built in down-lighters for additional light achieveing sun light during the day and artificial light at night. Glass skylights can be manuacftured to provide access to a flat roof, to bring the outside inside, and some glass skylights can even be walked on, for example if you are using the roof space as a balcony or sunbathing area.

A skylight with a square base and a dome top is the starting point for most people, but there is much more on offer. Rectangular skylights are extremely popular and circular skylights are also available in a great range of sizes. If you can imagine it we can probably supply it. Domes, pyramids, trapezoids and even octagons have all been successful supplied and the more unusual shapes can add some real character to a building. Colour and ventilation adds even further options with both the kerbs and the skylight itself available in many options.

Skylights for commercial applications tend to be specified to different priorities compared to a domestic skylight. For example, if you have a flat roof on a property which you would like to use as a balcony or sunbathing area your priorities might include durability and safety. In these cases you can specify a glass skylight with an increased glass thickness which is perfectly safe to walk on. This glass skylight will allow natural light into the room below whilst acting as a safe flooring solution!

Alternatively a large commercial building may require many skylights to allow natural light in to help save energy which would otherwise be wasted on lighting. In these high volume situations the standard polycarbonate skylight dome is the traditional skylight solution. The polycarbonate skylight is a very commonly seen skylight in the UK, and are easy to fit, low in cost and normally available ex-stock.

It really doesn't matter to us if you need a full smoke vent system, several hundred polycarbonate sky lights for a factory or a simply a single skylight for your extension. Whatever you want and whenever you need it your skylight order will always receive the very best service and support we can offer.
