Barrel Vault Rooflights Clydebank

Barrel Vault Rooflights – supplied and installed

Out with the Old in with the New

Brownlie Partners were asked to have a look at the condition of the existing barrel vault rooflights on an industrial building in Glasgow. They were leaking badly and patch up repairs had been attempted over the years without success. There were also very little light coming through the rooflights.

Following a site survey by Ian Brownlie, it was proposed that the old rooflights to be stripped out and replaced with brand new Astrofade Barrel Vault Rooflights, in multi wall polycarbonate. The benefits of this this was to allow more light in  and eliminate leaks into the building while supplying a modern insulated galzed rooflight.

Once our proposal was accepted, the rooflights were manufactured at the factory in Gateshead, and brought to site to be installed by our specialist fitting team.

After installation of the 2 No. barrel vault rooflights (14.3m long x 2.1m wide), the overall light in the building was far superior to what it was before. Our client was really impressed with how much extra daylight was coming into the building.

All aluiminium glazing bars for the rooflights are polyester power coated in white; giving a nice clean bright finish to internally and externally.
