Em-View rooflights incorporate two glazing types – a polycarbonate roof dome over a double glazed flat glass unit.  This gives increased thermal values and clarity while keeping the aesthetic values of a glass rooflight.   The roof dome is available as single skinned as standard, but with options for double, triple or quad skin.

  • Single skin dome with double glazed flat glass
  • Double skin dome with double glazed flat glass
  • Triple skin dome with double glazed flat glass
  • Quad skin dome with double glazed flat glass

Em-Views are available in the full range of glazing options including Clear, Opal Diffused, Bronze and HeatReflect.

  • Clear
  • Opal Diffused


Em-View rooflights are compatible with our 150mm vertical or splayed upstands.  They can also be installed to existing builder’s curbs by means of a 50mm high uPVC sub-frame.

The 150mm vertical curb is made of shock resistant uPVC which does not need any additional finish. The curbs are equipped with a self-adhesive protection film on the inside, which must be removed at first use. When cleaning the curb, only use non-abrasive and neutral cleaning products to keep the smooth inner aspect.

Natural ventilation of rooms is important for the health, comfort and performance of occupants and also significantly reduces building running costs by reducing energy consumption.  Effective air flow is also paramount for meeting building regulations.

Natural ventilation controls are also available, including wind, rain and temperature sensors, humidity and CO2 monitors, remote controls, and time controlled opening and closing.  They are designed to provide advanced switching options to control comfort ventilation for electrically opening rooflights.  The controls are compatible with both modular and continuous rooflight ranges and all building types.  Various options can be used in conjunction with each other.

Available options for Em-View rooflights:

Hinged Manual Spindle Opening

Hinged opening vents provide the maximum ventilation area to allow rapid air movement.  The manual spindle operation can be opened to any point up to 300mm and is operated by a Winding Rod available separately in 1.5m, 2m, 3m or 4m lengths – please enquire for more details.

Hinged Electric Actuator Opening

Powered hinged opening vents provide the maximum ventilation area to allow rapid air movement opening to 200mm.  The electric actuator operation allows control by a wall mounted open/close switch with options for wind, rain and temperature sensors, as well as CO2 monitors, and a range of control panels  available separately.
