How are oak roof lanterns made?
Your lantern will be made using premium oak in our joinery after undergoing planning and CAD diagrams. The CNC machinery we use will manufacture to the exact MM ensuring your product is easy to assemble and meets the exact requirements at the outset.
Once the oak lantern has been manufactured, it’ll go through various refinery stages with our expert craftsmen team who will deal with the additional configuration and design of the lantern. Once the lantern has been completed, it will be sent to our internal paint shop to be treated and painted using ultra high-quality farrow and ball microporous paints.
Our traditional roof lanterns are made using advanced manufacturing processes, but first, our designers / architectural and structural engineers construct the lantern in 3D using CAD to calculate structural integrity based on the features of the lantern.
Once the lantern design has been approved the manufacturing process begins. When the lantern has been completed and is ready to send out it is carefully wrapped and protected so that on delivery and installation no further painting is required.
Oak Roof Lantern Product Benefits
Traditional roof lanterns are a rooftop architectural structure that allow light to flood into a property. While some refer to them as timber roof lanterns, others name them wooden skylights.
Typically, modern hardwood roof lanterns can be seen as part of the structure of orangeries and conservatories in modern architecture although they’re usually incorporated into a contemporary design, particularly in bigger properties where the middle of the house is lacking in natural light.
Roof lanterns are a functional part of a home, as they allow natural light in where it would otherwise be difficult to integrate into a home or commercial property. The more light that enters a room, the less likely a person is to suffer from issues like seasonal affective disorder or depression.
Roof lantern skylights, if strategically fitted, can cut electricity bills down, especially in the summer months. Also, these structures offer full privacy, particularly when properties are built in close proximity to each other. They enable homeowners and workers to enjoy natural light streaming in without compromising on their privacy.
Another benefit of roof lantern lights is their ability to ventilate a room since they normally have two panels which open much like a window. Coming from above, fumes from the street aren’t being blown directly into a property.
