New Classic Or Contemporary Roof Lantern Launched

A new aluminium roof lantern from Brett Martin is available in both a four pane Contemporary or a six pane Classic style. Both maximise light transmission by using slim glazing bar profiles.

Despite the narrow bars, it is claimed the lantern still maintains 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, says: “We are already a major player in the domestic market with our flat glass rooflights but we wanted to provide a lantern style as well. 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.”  


Lead times

Brett Martin will offer three to five day delivery on the range from its 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.
