To some, a roof lantern is a chance to welcome additional light in from every angle, for others it’s an opportunity to create an architectural talking point.

A stylish alternative to a traditional uPVC conservatory, the addition of one or multiple aluminium roof lanterns will open up your client’s space, flooding it with natural light and creating a sense of connection with the outdoors.

Why Choose an Aluminium Roof Lantern?

As traditional conservatories fall out of fashion, homeowners still require a glazing solution that will add light and interest to their living spaces. Roof lanterns are the ideal alternative for contemporary projects – especially suited to flat-roofed extensions for kitchen and dining spaces.

Installing any type of roof lantern can create a more modern look, but with benefits that range from better performance, increased durability and improved customisation options, it’s no surprise that aluminium roof lanterns are growing in popularity.

The ideal choice for refurbishment projects and new installations alike, aluminium roof lanterns offer a superior alternative to old fashioned timber, steel or uPVC constructed glazing solutions. Our aluminium roof lanterns are elegantly designed to be sleek and slender, with minimal sightlines that won’t interrupt your views of the sky above.

With the Xenlite roof lantern from AluFold, there’s no need for clunky bars and supports that clutter the ridge and dominate the feature. Thanks to our secure design and the strength of aluminium, you can provide spaces with more natural light and an increased sense of volume and dimension, without compromising stability.

Want a roof lantern that’s quicker, easier and safer to install? Discover even more reasons why the Xenlite roof lantern is the ideal choice for installers.
