Why Choose a Korniche Roof Lantern?
Why do so many people love Korniche Roof Lanterns? The innovative design combines a traditional wooden appearance with the modern performance you’ve come to expect from new installations. With an aluminium construction and modern manufacturing techniques, you get thermal efficiency, high security and impressive durability and longevity.
Translation? You’ll have a Roof Lantern that looks great and performs well for years to come. And one that adds value to your property.
Impressive thermal efficiency
Extensions are a great addition to any home. But far too often, they’re inefficient and actually eliminate their main purpose – as an additional living space in your home. Extensions can soon become too cold in winter and far too warm and stuffy on hotter days. The result? You just don’t use them to enjoy your breakfast, let the kids play or entertain friends.
That’s where the Korniche Roof Lantern is different. Unlike other systems, the external and internal profiles have been isolated, with an innovative T-bar design bridging the gap between the profiles and finishing caps. In short, that maximises the thermal break to eliminate the chance of cold bridging – a break or penetration in insulation, which provides a bridge for cold air to transfer.
That’s complemented by thermally broken eaves beams, which add an insulated barrier between aluminium sections. The thermally efficient glazing is the icing on the cake, making the Korniche system superior at keeping the cold out in winter, and the heat out in summer. So, you have a comfortable living space that you can use all year round.
Strength, durability and security
From Banbury to High Wycombe, all homes can benefit from strength and durability. You need a roof that can handle constant battering from British rain, as well as those unexpected leaves, branches and flying footballs.
Working with the British Board of Agrément, Korniche has been designed to exceed their required specification. As an example, a 6×4 metre lantern can withstand over 8 tonnes of weight. Safe to say, it can handle anything nature, or you, have to throw at it. That’s combined with state-of-the-art seals and gaskets, so you can rest assured you’re completely protected from wind, rain and snow.
But that strength doesn’t obstruct your view. The Korniche has minimal structure with the fewest possible rafters. Rather than cramming rafters in, it uses an innovative glass lock system with tamper-proof fasteners – which aren’t even visible once caps are fitted. That means more glass spanning the length and breadth of the roof lantern, to maximise your view and let more light flood in.
Tailored to your requirements
Whether it’s a terraced house in Oxford, detached property in Aylesbury or a semi in Milton Keynes, your home will no doubt have its own style and appearance. Fortunately, Korniche can be tailored to your requirements with a range of custom options and added extras.
Choose from popular shades of Gloss White, Matt Black and Matt Grey in any combination for the inside and outside of your lantern. Where required, roofs can even be manufactured in bespoke colours, using a custom RAL code. That customisation extends to the glass, which can be installed in clear, neutral, tinted, aqua, blue or bronze. You can even add self-cleaning glass to reduce maintenance!
New or retrofit
With the expert installation team at Silent View Windows, you can add a Korniche Roof Lantern to both new and existing extensions. Add to your new-build extension with a thermally efficient Roof Lantern that lets light flood into your new space.
Or transform an existing living space with a retrofit Korniche installation. The slim Korniche system fits perfectly onto any existing extension – or can be incorporated into any design plans for your new project. From the engineered structure and glass locks to weather seals and endcaps, the system has been designed with flawless precision.
Spa and ridge sections on the Korniche Roof Lantern are an impressive 57mm wide, among some of the slimmest available. That’s combined with sculpted bosses for a high-quality appearance, normally restricted to timber products. The final touch? Fully concealed fixings to keep lines flowing across the Roof Lantern for perfect style and balance.
Whether it’s new or retrofit, the Korniche Roof Lantern is an exquisite fit for your extension. Each feature has been designed to work in harmony with the overall design, which in turn works in harmony with your extension and your home.
