Roof lanterns

The popularity of the orangery has grown enormously over the last five years. From the grand – traditional in style and attached to something grander – through to the home extension orangery, that is on the ‘wish list’ of many home improvers. In every case there is one orangery-defining element that appears in all of them: the roof lantern.

The attraction is clear, floods of glorious light pouring down into the room below. Whether the design follows the traditional route of square or rectangular lanterns, positioned centrally in the ceiling space, or, the more modern approach of a much larger lantern creating a ‘light ceiling’, the end result is the same: loads of glorious light.

At Paxtons we understand orangeries. We’ve been designing and building them for over 10 years, and welcome the fact that the traditional orangery has paved the way for many new and exciting roof lantern products. Modern techniques make construction using narrower profiles possible, resulting in more glass and less frame. The glass itself has improved enormously, with modern lanterns delivering high insulation values that were never possible in the past. And the ease of installation, with no on-going painting or maintenance, make a compelling case for the roof lantern, in the unlikely event that good looks aren’t enough!

Supply only or full supply and installation service
Paxtons offer a supply only service (for installation by your own contractor); a survey, design and installation service, if you’re converting or building a flat roofed extension; or our orangery design and build service that takes your idea through to completed orangery.

For more information about our range of roof lanterns – from traditional treated timber through to hi-tech, low profile powder coated aluminium – please call our sales team on 01799 527542.
