As the name suggests, the new addition features a steeper pitch: 35° in fact, a full 150 more than the current design.
The new 35° pitch is visually very different to the standard 200, making it suitable for more commercial applications such as schools, colleges, hospitals and offices, where this pitch degree is better suited to larger, multi-storey buildings.
This market tends to be dominated by aluminium products, so the arrival of the new Skypod provides an aesthetically pleasing and cost-effective alternative.
Skypod Acute sports the same stylish, narrow glazing bars and generous sightlines for residential properties as the rest of the Skypod range and in its square format it now fits an even smaller aperture, allowing even more light into parts of the home that previously was not possible.
In addition, no sidebars are needed on sizes up to 1.5m x 2.75m, so further improving sightlines and letting in more natural light. Skypod Acute is supplied with self-cleaning, temperature controlled glass in Blue, Neutral, Bronze and Clear as standard, with a U-value of 1.0W/m²K achievable.
Skypod’s success in the market is due in no small part to its good looks and aesthetics especially when compared to other UPVC systems.
Plus, it offers better value for money than aluminium alternatives. Its contemporary design means that Skypod is the most effective means of boosting headroom and volume, while welcoming extra natural light into otherwise drab flat-roofed rooms.
It is very easy to fit, with even screw holes pre-drilled for accuracy and convenience; and everything needed is supplied ‘out of the box’.
As with all Skypod products, Skypod Acute has a 10-year guarantee and is available in the full colour range of Anthracite Grey, Moondust Grey, Golden Oak, Rosewood and White – with a white interior finish as standard to maximise the light and airy feel. A further 30 colour options can be made to order in just three weeks.
