Why choose aluminium?
Aluminium is versatile and attractive, with it's distinctive style, slim frames, and appearance that compliments both traditional and contemporary designs. Aluminium frames are up to 50% slimmer than PVCu frames, maximising the amount of natural light able to enter your home, due to the increased ratio of glass to frame. REAL aluminium lantern rooflights have 4 panes of glass with no boss and hood. Therefore, in addition to the slim internal sightlines and low external sightlines, your lantern will create fantastic views all year round.
The REAL aluminium lantern rooflight has a 60% slimmer internal ridge than it's competitors, and 38% slimmer internal hip. It also ghas over 50% lower external bulk.
High strength and durability
Aluminium is far stronger than PVCu, and therefore doesn't require reinforcement. REAL aluminium lantern rooflights have superior strength. Additionally, aluminium is extremely durable, meaning your products will function as you'd expect over many, many years. Aluminium is the first choice for architects that require longevity, performance, and value for money. These aluminium lanterns have been tested to wind pressure of up to 1.32 KNm-2, and has a pressure plated system for extra security.
Ease of maintenance
REAL aluminium lantern rooflights are virtually maintenance-free. Your lantern will only require occasional cleaning due to the modern, powder-coated finish, which is extremely hard-wearing.
Aluminium uses just 5% of the total energy needed to produce frames from scratch - it is infinitely recyclable.
REAL aluminium lantern rooflights exceed the energy performance requirements of current building regulations. They are enhanced with polyamide thermal barrier technology, giving them exceptional thermal properties and superior efficiency. A thermal break in the ridge and rafters prevents the cold getting to the inside of the rafter, leading to an industry-leading ridge and rafter U-Value. The REAL range has a high resistance to heat transfer from the inner face of the frame to the external face of the frame, therefore reducing condensation and helping you to keep your heating bills down in the Winter.
The powder-coated finish of the REAL aluminium range is one of the most durable finishes available on the marketeven surpassing marine grade requirements. Your REAL aluminium lantern rooflight will not rust, peel, or discolour; it will retain it's attractive, aesthetically-pleasing appearance. The REAL guarantee covers powder-coating against:
- Peeling, powdering, and blistering
