K2 Lantern Roofs

The K2 Lantern Roof has been around for many years now, and is well known in the industry.

What is the appeal of a lantern glass roof?

A Lantern glass roof adds a touch of class to any room, while also giving a rooms ceiling some extra height and a feeling of space. It also adds extra light to any room and helps control temperatures. Manual or electric roof vents can be added, a roof lantern needs to have a minimum internal width off around 1300mm and an internal length of around 2400mm for a vent to fit. There are many different glass options, and colours available, our recommended glass of choice is our active blue low E glass.

Fitting a lantern roof to a flat roof

Whether a newly built extension or cutting a hole into an existing flat roof, the basic idea is the same, a small lantern roof sits on a wooden upstand, the upstand is waterproofed, 2 beads of silicone are added to the top of the upstand then the ring beam is drilled though and using either long wood screws or anker bolts the ring beam is secured to the upstand, large lantern roofs often sit on wooden upstands supported by rsj beams. Most lantern roofs have no gutter, as the lantern is fitted to a flat roof, the glass overhangs the ring beam outer by 68mm, the edge of the glass is finished with a colour co ordinated glass end finisher, known as a drip, the water falls onto the flat roof.

Fully assembled frame deliveries

Frames with internal measurements upto 2200mm width by 3900mm in length can be delivered assembled, providing there is access to the property the light aluminium frame can be lifted straight into place, just leaving the frame to be sealed and secured into position, the roof can then be glazed, top caps, ridge cap glass drips and end caps can be fitted to finish.

Lantern roof colours

Most people keep it simple and have a white roof, but we are seeing a rise in people requesting other colours, by far, Anthracite grey is our most requested colour, followed by black, we also do Rosewood, Golden Oak, Chartwell Green. If provided with a ral colour we can also do one off colours, most lantern roofs are clad with strong UPVC caps, on large lanterns aluminium caps are an option.
