Rooflights allow for additional daylighting of spaces where windows don’t let in enough light. Products are available to offer thermal insulation, solar control, low maintenance properties and noise reduction.
Overhead glazing should always be designed to withstand potential wind and snow loadings, and most importantly with the safety of those beneath in mind. Falling glass would be a key risk for building occupants where overhead glazing is considered, and ensuring suitable glass types are in place can reduce, or negate, the risk of harm.
In some cases, where access to the glazing is possible, additional requirements for glazing need to be considered. These requirements can range from containment in the case of accidental fall, through to glazing that is essentially acting as a floor.
