Gable and hip-ended lantern lights are custom-made continuous rooflights. Differing from the ridgelight, they incorporate a vertical-glazed base section which is available in custom heights.

Lantern lights are available in spans of under 1m up to 7m unsupported, and larger with a supporting framework. A 30° slope is designed as standard, although bespoke pitches can be achieved.

Product info

Key Features:

  • Well-suited for conservation projects
  • Building Regulation AD L compliant options
  • Bespoke angles and shapes available


Lantern lights are manufactured from proprietary aluminium extrusions in a range of sizes to suit slope lengths or design. Available with hermetically sealed glass units, the rooflights are installed on-site, either to a site-formed upstand or to a proprietary em.curb upstand. Each rooflight run is terminated with glazed gable ends, hipped ends, wall abutments or open ends. Bays are designed at equal centres as standard, which will be sized in accordance with the required dimensions and glass specifications. Units can incorporate angles and other specialist detailing, such as bespoke flashings. Framework can be powder coated or left mill finish.


Glazing is available in polycarbonate, multiwall or solid sheet and single-, double- or triple- glazed glass. Clear, opal-diffused and heat-reflect polycarbonate are suitable for a broad range of projects. Glass is available in an extensive range of options to meet more demanding performance criteria. The thickness and type is determined by the size and configuration of the rooflight unit and can be custom designed.


Units can also incorporate opening vents for comfort, smoke ventilation or access to the roof, operated manually or by 24 or 230v electric actuators. Opening sections can be installed into the vertical base or the sloped roof section.
