An Upstand is an integral element of the functionality and fit of a skylight. They are raised frames that create enough height between the roof and the skylight and also enough pitch to protect against weather.
Being the most accredited skylight company in the country is a major achievement of which Sunsquare are, rightly, very proud. Changing an unregulated industry over the years by creating a standard with the BSI that can give regulation and safety to clients has been a priority.
We often get asked whether we can provide kit form skylights, and it is a sensible question to ask. Large skylights can be difficult to manoeuvre and expensive to install, however unlike beaded lanterns and windows, flat roof skylights require slightly more skill to manufacture than people would imagine.
We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded Secure By Design status on our SkyView, Pyramid, Aero Vent and Walk-On products which is a nationally recognised security standard, furthering our commitment to ensuring Sunsquare provides the highest quality possible.
The Pitfalls of Skylight Condensation: How to Avoid it
The internet is awash with complaints and negative reviews from owners of skylights – not acquired from Sunsquare – regarding the levels of skylight condensation formed on the glass surface, creating excess moisture that exists and festers within living and working environments.
In this world of technology and ever elaborate websites, it is extremely difficult to really know who you are buying from, let alone what you are buying. Sadly, because the rooflight industry is unregulated, this means that companies in the industry can say pretty much what they want, to whomever they want.
