Timber Roof Lantern

Timber roof lanterns are manufactured with a simple installation in mind and are designed with unique slotted dovetail, mortise and tenon joints and pre-drilled fixing holes.

Our unique roof system is manufactured by our highly skilled engineers and joiners utilising 5 axis CNC routers with robotic loading.

A full range of glazing options can be accommodated. These include solar control, easy clean and laminated, but anything commercially available can be fitted, including switchable or bullet proof options.

Roof glass units sit on top of a specially designed gasket system, acting as protection against water ingress. Our lantern roofs are capped and finished with a low maintenance aluminium capper which can be powder coated to closely match the timber colour, or another colour of your choosing.
