Neo Rooflight installation by Practical Roofing
Representing a new concept in design neo™ results from a collaboration between the Rooflight Company’s design team and a focus group comprising of architects and designers. The result is a rooflight where form and function are equally balanced.
All neo™ rooflights are fully Part L compliant and exceed the weather tightness requirements of BS 6375.
Due to its edge-to-edge glazing and ultra-low profile, the neo™ does not dominate the roof; the overall appearance is one of a single sheet of glass. These aesthetic advantages are cleverly combined with modern functionality such as concealed electric openings and a wide range of blinds including the Dual Pleat blind which offers a complete darkening of the room.
Clear, uncluttered Views
Unlike most modern rooflights, when closed, neo™ has totally clear views uncluttered by opening mechanisms. All neo™ models are top-hinged with concealed motors or with a discreet handle at the cill should a manual option be desired. Oak or moisture resistant linings (for painting on-site) create a warm to the touch internal surface.
Choice and Sizing
This range is available in two materials – steel or Fortecom®.
The steel option is available in Portrait, Landscape or Square format in 15 sizes and an optional glazing bar where a conservation appearance is more appropriate. For a limitless run of rooflights a choice of linking systems are available.
Fortecom™ is also available in Portrait, Landscape and a Square format in 10 sizes. The 2 largest sizes are only available in a fixed shut option.
Neat and Easy Installation
neo™ is suitable for roof pitches between 20° and 60°
The new flashing kit ensures neat and easy on-site fitment which blends seamlessly into most roof tile types.
The frame construction consists of 3mm steel with a protective Polyester powder coating and has a guarantee of up to 12 years on the frame and 5 years on the glass*. An integral Thermoliner® PVC-U decoupled lining helps to offer condensation control.
*Dependent on location and mandatory maintenance regime undertaken.
The steel option has two opening positions:
- for ventilation.
- fully open.
Our standard IGU specification is a 4mm SGG PLANITHERM® TOTAL+ toughened inner with a 16mm argon cavity and a 4mm SGG PLANILUX® toughened outer, giving a glass centre pane U-value of 1.2W/m²K.
Other glazing specifications offering for example, improved thermal, acoustic or security properties as well as decorative finishes are also available.
The standard colour for the steel version is Umbra Grey (RAL 7022).
Any RAL or BS colour can be specified to match the roof covering.
The frame construction consists of a pultruded fibre-reinforced composite which is slim, strong and designed to withstand the most hostile of environments. Considered to be in the “high tech” league of modern materials, it has a proven track record in demanding environments such as those found in the oil exploration and aerospace industries. With its inherent high mechanical strength and anti-corrosive properties it offers many benefits over traditional materials and comes with a 12 year guarantee*. Fortecom outperforms the BRE weather and air tightness requirements of BS 6375: Part 1:2009 and pultruded composites receive an “A” rating in the BRE “Green Guide to Composites”.
