    The Benefits of Using a
    BSI-Accredited Skylight Manufacturer

    arrow Back to blog 15th June 2015

    The British Standards Institution (BSI) is committed to setting standards of industry excellence, and as one of the most respected and reputable management systems certification bodies on the planet, any BSI recognition a business can gain is further proof they operate to the highest levels of quality and service.

    Earlier this year, Sunsquare secured BSI accreditation for the air permeability, weather tightness and wind resistance against BS 6375-1:2009 of its Skyview, Aero, Horizon and Pyramid skylights.


    BS 6375-1:2009 has previously only been used to test weather performance for windows and doors.

    Breaking new ground

    Make no mistake about it; this is a big deal in the skylight industry, becoming the world’s first designer and manufacturer of flat roof skylights to achieve such standards.


    For our much-valued customers, our BSI accreditation gives them even greater confidence to invest in our wide-range of high-specification roof windows.


    The BSI has carved the way for products standards and there is no other organisation in the UK which offers such comprehensive testing facilities. This means that our customers can buy safe in the knowledge that our skylights are entirely fit for purpose.

    A “proud” achievement

    Hilary Roberts, product marketing manager at BSI, said: “Sunsquare’s range of skylights underwent rigorous testing by our team which involved recreating extreme weather conditions.


    “They are the first skylight makers to be verified to BS 6375-1:2009 and should be proud of this achievement.


    “By receiving a verification certificate Sunsquare has shown that they are committed to best practice, and continual improvement, providing customers with the confidence that their skylights meet strict performance requirements.”
