Material Information

...

Aluminium is the optimum material for manufacturing glazed roof lights, offering strength, durability and low maintenance. That is why glazed aluminium is widely specified by Architects for the most serious new build and refurbishment projects. The KATlite is thermally broken with Polyamide; toughened double glazing as standard.

Aluminium windows and roof lights are susceptible to condensation, all that is required is for the condensation to be wiped away from time to time.

Safety & Security

...

KAT ensures that the glass fitted in all Flat Roof Lights meet safety standards. A combination of toughened and laminated glass is used, with a toughened pane to the outside and a laminated pane to the inside.

If smashed, toughened glass will shatter into tiny pieces, rather than hazardous shards. Laminated glass is made up of layers of glass with resin sandwiched in the middle; if laminated glass is damaged it will simply form a crack, rather than shattering, holding the sheets together.

This combination is the perfect choice to secure a home.
