Reach for the sky

Transform your home, and let natural light flood in, with the latest skylight technology.

There is no doubt that light, where it comes from and how much of it is let in, comes high on the agenda when planning any home extension. Windows are a given, but did you know that the addition of a skylight can not only increase the light level in a room but can save you money too? We spoke to Stuart at Longrock Windows about an innovative skylight system that is shedding new light on the subject.

“We are excited to be able to offer the very latest in skylight technology; the Ultrasky Flat Skylight from Ultraframe is transforming extensions and orangeries around the county. We have chosen the product due to its simple, stylish elegance combined with ease of fit and excellent thermal properties,” says Stuart. “In fact, the ‘Warm Frame’ technology that the Ultrasky employs, combined with noise reducing glass, means it is unrivalled in both thermal efficiency and noise reduction.”

The Ultraksy has a sleek modern design with frameless edge-to-edge glass, meaning it is perfect if you are opting for a contemporary look, while letting the maximum amount of light into a room. These skylights fit flush with the internal plasterboard, making them appear frameless from the inside, resulting in a bright open roof feel. And when it comes to matching your interior, the Ultrasky has that covered too. Available in the standard colours of black, grey or white, you can also add an extra touch of style by customising the colour of your skylight. Ultraskys can be matched to any RAL colour – the European colour matching system which defines colours for paint, coatings and plastics – for a smart, seamless appearance.

However, it’s not all about the look. It’s important that any skylight also delivers on a practical level, as Stuart explains: “The Ultrasky’s thermal properties mean they deliver warmth in the winter and are cooling in the summer, minimizing the need for heating and air conditioning.” So, if you want to scatter some sunbeams into your life or sit back and enjoy a sky view like no other, we suggest you get in touch with Longrock Windows today for a whole new window on the world!
