Our EDGEsky roof lantern is an increasingly popular structure of rooflight that is largely installed in flat roof extensions. Often referred to as sky lanterns or roof windows, our lanterns are frequently chosen due to their classic, sleek design – which adds a sense of sophistication to any project. Roof lanterns make a perfect statement in a space, whilst bringing in tonnes of natural light and making rooms feel bigger. In this blog, we’ll look at the specification, previous installations and testimonials of the EdgeSky Roof Lantern.
The EdgeSky Roof Lantern is of the highest quality and designed to fit simply to a pre-formed weathered upstand on the roof. With a fixed pitch of 25 degrees, we can manufacture them in any size up to 4000x 6000mm, in matt grey, matt black or gloss white (with other RAL colours available on special order). Roof lanterns are an excellent choice if there is a need for a much larger roof glazing system to bring in a maximum flow of daylight.
Although roof lanterns have aluminium glazing bars that provide support and create the look of a ‘lantern’, our roof bars are slim at only 57mm wide – some of the slimmest on the market – and this appeals to homeowners looking for a sleek finish with less obstruction to the sky. Because we aim to give builders (and ultimately homeowners) choice, we also offer the addition of extra bars to the lantern if a more traditional look is required. Our EDGEsky roof lantern provides a clean, contemporary finish and structural elegance throughout.

Installing the EDGEsky roof lantern
It’s easy to baulk at the thought of installing a seemingly sophisticated product, as there are plenty of risks involved – but our EdgeSky roof lantern couldn’t be easier to install! Time and time again, we get comments from our clients, remarking on how straight forward it was.

We’ve seen some pretty cool installations of our roof lanterns over the years, here are a couple that won our installation of the month award:
Harveyworks installed one of our roof lanterns in anthracite grey, over the dining space – you can see how much quality light enters the room. HarveyWorks also chose to have an opener in the lantern, which improves the room’s ventilation.
Russell Harding installation:
Russell Harding installed a white lantern into a flat roof extension in a Chichester family home. The classic style of the lantern really suited the property and brings a degree of sophistication and elegance to the project.

Window installer, Bognor Regis
“We are extremely pleased with the roof light, a lot of effort must have gone into the minimalistic design and ‘timber look’ finish, which is very pleasing to the eye. Very easy to piece together and fit, altogether a great product!”
