The design and manufacture of a skylight, and who supplies it, is something to be taken pretty seriously – after all, this piece of glass may well be hanging over children’s heads. The first thing to look for, with that in mind, is ensuring you have laminated glass above you.
Another vital element is the thermal properties of the skylight. As we are an unregulated industry the quality of manufacture and thermal properties can vary widely between companies and some, take full advantage of blinding with science and providing substandard products.
It is wise to look for a fully accredited 9001 and 14001 company as this shows dedication to ensuring the business is run well, but also, the Kitemark on the entire product would ensure ultimate performance and safety. A skylight is not something to try to cut costs or corners on.
