“We’ve developed a roof kit that we’ll deliver direct to site for next day installation, so customers can choose from three stock sizes and four stock colours, including a dual colour. Bespoke sizes and colours are available in just two weeks,” says Craig Miller, Managing Director of AluFoldDirect.
“With no plastic trims, the 100 percent aluminium system uses only a square-cut profile with a thermal break. There are no bulky details, just a simple, clean, attractive roof lantern design with a beautiful finish and slim sightlines.
“The roof kit fits together neatly and quickly and is ready to seal in under 40 minutes – the best quality without the hassle. That means installations can go ahead in even the worst weather conditions. In fact, Storm Doris gave us a final test we hadn’t planned for. We left a Roof Lantern out with a cardboard liner under it. It kept the storm at bay and the liner stayed completely dry.”
Two design options are available. The contemporary four-pane RL1 lantern and the multi-pane RL2 for wider roofs. Features of the Technic-AL system include slimline curtain walling-style roof rafter bars, and clever verge overlap details that mask flashings or flat roof coatings.
Developed in-house by AluFoldDirect, the Technic-AL Roof Lantern is the second Technic-AL product, following the 2016 launch of the successful RD1 Entrance Door.
“Technic-AL products are created by aluminium experts who understand what homeowners want in style and performance. They’re also designed to help installers to save time and money and keep their projects on schedule.”
