Ridgelight 5° with beams

A rooflight system for commercial and public buildings. The system consists of prefabricated modular skylights, including profiles, panes, flashings, control systems for natural and smoke ventilation and roller blinds.

Ridgelight at 5° pitch generates the illusion of a small glass roof with discreet transverse horizontal supporting beams. The rooflights are mounted on a rail system that guarantees fast and secure installation. They are the perfect solution for a wide variety of circulation spaces, gallery spaces and small internal courts where people meet or pass in transit.


  • Framing material ensures very low U-value.
  • Complete daylight and ventilation control.
  • Superior environmental profile compared to aluminium rooflights.
  • Slim profiles and flush exterior surface provide an elegant appearance.
  • Integrated chain actuator creates an identical look for fixed and venting modules.
  • Internal blinds complete the interior with a 'free-floating' design.


  • ACR(M)001 Class A non-fragile assembly.
  • CE-marked to BS EN 14351-1.
  • Tested and approved in accordance with BS EN 12101-2.

Standard product features


Pultruded fibreglass and polyurethane composite that gives high strength and low thermal conductivity. The dimensions of frame and sash profiles are not affected by the size of the rooflight module as loads are transferred to the mounting brackets.

The inside surface is treated with white paint (NCS S0500-N, gloss 30: nearest RAL colour, 9010), while the aluminium cladding is coated with granite grey, scratch-resistant powder lacquer.

Mounting bracket:

Galvanized steel multi-brackets at each corner of the rooflight.


Prefabricated modular flashing with integrated 50 mm insulation and snow stop. Grey painted aluminium.

Technical properties:

  • Acoustic performance: 35 dB.
  • Air permeability: Class 4.
  • Fire rating: Class B.
  • Watertightness: E900.
  • Wind load resistance: Class C5.
