Architectural stunning, Ritchlight Ultra is a fully thermally broken modular skylight system which virtually eliminates any additional heat loss through the frame, which is traditionally associated with skylights, and eradicates any cold spots, dramatically reducing the risk of condensation. Thermally efficient, Ritchlight Ultra skylights enable specifiers to achieve U-values up to 1.1W/m²k - exceeding Part L Building Regulation requirements by 50%. With a choice of pitched glazing styles (including gable and hip ends, pyramid sky lights and lantern bases) the Ritchlight Ultra is a versatile skylight solution for use in the education, healthcare, retail and residential sectors. The skylight units are supplied factory-assembled and this controlled build allows the company to assure clients not only of a ‘zero-defect’ fitting but also reduced installation time on site.
