Brett Martin Stunning New Roof Lantern Puts Safety First

Daylight Systems 01.08.2023

A new Roof Lantern from daylight systems manufacturer, Brett Martin, will enhance the quality of any space and shares many of the same high-performance features as the glass rooflight range for the domestic market.

Available in both a 4 pane Contemporary or a 6 pane Classic style, the new aluminium lantern has been designed to maximise the light transmission by engineering slim glazing bar profiles whilst maintaining excellent physical and energy efficiency performance. Brett Martin is a strong advocate for user safety and so the new lantern’s glazing features laminated inner panes, providing a level of safety not usually available as standard in this market.  

The only safe choice for overhead glazing, laminated inner panes offer enhanced protection for those below from falling glass in the event of accidental breakage. The National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers (NARM) and the Advisory Committee for Roofsafety (ACR) both recommend that the inner pane should always be laminated glass as the safest recommended rooflight option.

Sales Director, Tony Isaac, explains the significance of the launch: “We are already a major player in the domestic market with our Flat Glass rooflights, but we realise our customer base use both Flat Glass and Lantern style rooflights. Our new product meets the installer’s need for easy water-tight installation with precision aluminium castings and extrusions enabling rapid on-site glazing. Practicality is key to our users, who want to get onto and off sites efficiently, so our total package for the new lantern addresses all the issues they regularly encounter on the job.

The installation requires no silicon, other than on the kerb, and the design of the lantern’s components has removed the need to access the frame from below. Therefore, assembly can be completed from the roof, which is a definite installer friendly feature”.   

Brett Martin will offer three-to-five day delivery on the range from the Coventry manufacturing site in a service which ensures each delivery will contain all the required lantern components and glazing. These will arrive together on-site, avoiding the frustration caused by multiple or separate consignments. The Roof Lantern is available in sizes up to 3000mm x 2000mm as well as bespoke sizing for a select range.

The Roof Lantern is a welcomed new addition to Brett Martin’s full flat-roof rooflight range that includes Flat Glass, Circular Glass, and the company’s continuous Glass Link rooflight.
