Outside: This is the overall dimension of the surround, i.e the size of the Roof Window as it appears on a roof

Throat: This is the internal dimension of the Liner, i.e the size of the Roof Window as it appears from inside a room

Penetration: This is the minimum dimension between purlins (without removing and trimming) to enable the Roof Window to be installed. This dimension is taken from outside the gyprock fixing angle

Glazing Performance

The Roof Window features outstanding solar control characteristics, in both glass and acrylic glazing applications. Both materials offer low UV transmittance (up to 99% elimination) and year round comfort due to excellent thermal performance.

Depending upon the type selected critical performance figures range from 0.55-0.95 for the shading co-efficient and 3.5-6.0 for the U-Value. Other factors that have been considered are the maximum visible Light Transmittance, Solar Transmittance, the maximum elimination of Ultra Violet Light and Noise Reduction.

For further information on the performance of these points, please request a specification sheet.
