Lumen offer a wide range of standard and bespoke rooflight designs for both pitched and flat roof window applications. This includes our conservation roof light, the Evo rooflight and our Planus rooflight for flat roof applications.
Manufactured in Great Britain to ISO 9001:2008, the Lumen range of rooflights benefit from the fine lines of steel and offer a high specification of Pilkington glazing. All of our rooflights are supplied with a high specification of glazing as standard. The units are manufactured in the UK by Pilkington who are widely regarded as the worlds leading producers of glass and glazing technology.
Our focus on glazing is thermal efficiency and our standard unit specification is a 4mm toughened safety outer leaf with Pilkington Activ Sunshade Neutral self clean, a 16mm argon gas filled cavity and a 4mm inner leaf of Pilkington Optitherm S1 toughened. This provides a glazing U Value of just 1.0. We shall continue to embrace glazing technology and will update the specification should improvements become available. In addition to our excellent performance, we have decided to keep our manufacturing based in the UK. Whilst this has the obvious benefits of having control over our quality and development our rooflights have a smaller carbon footprint than those imported from factories in the Far East or Eastern Europe by plane or truck.
As our rooflights are manufactured in Great Britain, we have the ability to monitor our quality control process very closely to ensure that every rooflight we supply meets not only our own exacting standards but also that of ISO9001:2008. In addition we are able to introduce new ideas quickly and manufacture bespoke items in as little as 6 weeks. We strongly believe that manufacturing Lumen rooflights in Great Britain not only keeps our carbon footprint to a minimum but is also the best way to provide our customers with the products they deserve. You can be sure that we will not compromise quality by cutting corners.
