Our Best-Selling Lanterns

Here at Sterlingbuild we like to keep things simple; we offer just two styles of roof lanterns, one being an ECO+ Contemporary glass lantern and the other our own-brand Sterlingbuild lantern. Only offering two types of lantern makes the choice of which to get a whole lot easier. You don't have to spend hours comparing different products - we have already picked out the best for you! 

Roof lanterns offer a real wow-factor by flooding your home with natural light, making them perfect for orangeries, kitchen extensions, conservatories, or dark rooms. At night, lanterns offer beautiful views of the stars.

Lanterns consist of glazed pieces of glass separated by aluminium trims, which meet in the middle to form a pitch, giving the illusion of a higher ceiling. Roof lanterns are extremely low-maintenance, ultra-energy efficient, and add up to three times more natural light than vertical windows – no wonder they’re so popular!

Note that with both of the products we offer, you will be required to build an upstand specific to the size and shape of the lantern you are purchasing.


1) The ECO+ Contemporary Glass Lantern

The ECO+ Contemporary glass lantern is a well-loved product amongst our customers, and it’s easy to see why! The Contemporary lantern helps create a comfortable, cosy living space and makes for a stunning centrepiece throughout the year. Plus, with a 10-year guarantee, a reduced risk of condensation and U-Value of 1.3 W/m2K, this lantern is amazing value for money.

This lantern is bespoke and completely made to measure for every project. The ECO+ contemporary glass lantern comes in 3 colours (black, grey and white), 5 connecting frame finishes and 2 glass finishes. 

The ECO+ contemporary glass lantern comes with 4 panes and is available in sizes up to 150x300cm. Sizes larger than this must have a multi pane, and are then not considered Contemporary.


2) The Sterlingbuild Lantern

The Sterlingbuild roof lantern has a contemporary slimline design that lets in masses of daylight and it looks fantastic on modern and older properties, inside and out.

This roof lantern comes flat packed for ease of transportation and is straightforward to install. Consisting of ultra-thin glazing connectors, this lantern ensures that you get as much natural light through your flat roof as possible. This lantern features an Easy Clean clear coating and a toughened outer pane. For extra privacy and light dimming, add a Sterlingbuild lantern blind to your order – available in black or white.

Whether you require a fixed, electrical or manual opening, all Sterlingbuild lanterns come with an ultra-energy efficient U-Value of 1.0W/m2K, double glazing and a built-in structural upstand as standard. Upgrade to triple glazed lantern, and get an astonishing U-Value of 0.6W/m2K; you can even upgrade further and install rain sensors or a rocker switch. If that isn’t enough variation for you to filter through, the Sterlingbuild lanterns also come in different colours and finishes – leaving you spoilt for choice!
