Project InformationProject: School in Essex
Client: Essex County Council
Scope of project: Upgrade roof lighting
Products: Em-Glaze mono-pitched continuous rooflights
Bespoke designed roof lights gives school full marks!
The school had several single skin mono-pitched rooflights across classrooms and toilet blocks. They all required upgrading in order to bring them up to date with current building regulations. All work had to be carried out within a short half term to ensure minimum disruption, whilst maintaining the original appearance.
Em-Glaze mono-pitched continuous rooflights were chosen and designed specifically for the job. The double glazed units are comprised of a 6mm toughened outer, 18mm argon filled cavity and 6.4mm laminated inner. The thermally enhanced aluminium glazing bars and flashing provide a thermal transmission of 1.4W/m²k, sound reduction rating of 34dB and a light transmission of 85%.
