Rectangle Roof Lanterns
A rectangle roof lantern usually sits atop a larger flat roof and is a highly effective way of introducing natural light, warmth and style to a building or extension.
Regarded as both an architectural feature and a practical option for brightening up a room, a Roof Lantern should have clean lines and perfect composition. They can be crafted into any size and pitch to meet your exact specifications and suit the architecture of your property.
All of the roof lantern that is internal is produced from Scandinavian Redwood. Octagonal Kingpins, Finials and Pendant Dropper (fitted to the underside of each Kingpin) are made from composite wood/resin. A shelf and cornice are added to the inside edge of each lantern.
A Grand Roof Lantern
This Roof Lantern sits centrally as part of a newly built flat roof extension. Two ring beams fixed together run around the perimeter and are fixed to the flat roof timber kerb. With staff moulds internally, these are dowelled and bolted at the corners.
The lantern features two double roof vents and pendant light droppers from the underside of the Kingpin. This roof lantern allows light to stream into the room below, drastically reducing the amount of artificial light needed.
