Howells Patent Glazing has developed its non-intrusive, low-pitch aluminium roof light, Ultraline, introducing a vented option and a minimalist steel rafter alternative for smaller roofs.
Ultraline provides architects, designers, builders and contractors with the ability to maximise daylight with large expanses of glass, without compromise. The developments enhance Ultraline’s superior aesthetics and performance.
Insulated Steel Rafter
An option for roofs typically measuring up to 1500mm, a steel bar divider is used rather than Ultraline’s standard glass rafter. The insulated steel rafter is part of the frame and matches the width of the standard glass rafter (40mm) but unlike the glass option, it need only be 40mm deep to meet load requirements across any span. The steel rafter offers architects and designers an enhanced minimal look.
To enable controlled, natural ventilation, Ultraline can now be supplied with an opening vent. Synchronised motors lift the glass, with multiple motors required for large expanses. All of the motors are hidden from view. Multiple vents are dependent on the capacity of the motors.
The vent is controlled using an open/close switch, as standard. Customers can upgrade to remote controls or a digital control panel with built-in external rain sensor and internal thermostat.
