Unlimited size range

Get a QuoteWhatever the size or space, there will be a Stardome polycarbonate dome to fit, either in a single unit (from 400x400mm to 2800x1600mm), or as larger barrel vaults or linked units. Our rooflights come with the choice of single and double skin units, and our triple and quad-skin units can significantly reduce internal condensation and deliver Ud Values as low as 1.4 W/m2K. The flexibility of the Stardome range of domes, pyramids and trapezoids make them a particularly good choice for refurbishment projects. A choice of variable fixing flanges is available in the common widths of 50mm, 75mm and 100mm, and for a small additional charge we can cater for specific requirements. Stardome polycarbonate domes are available in a range of standard and bespoke shapes and sizes to suit every need.

High Security Fixings

Stardome rooflights come with tamper resistant screwbolt fixings as standard which prevent their removal with traditional tools. The fixings are designed to protect the glazing from excess pressure, and the risk of stress fractures, if the screws are over-tightened.

Continuous Rooflights

Continuous rooflights are triple glazed as standard and formed from enhanced UV-protected polycarbonate with vented airspaces to satisfy Part L requirements. Single and double skin options are also available however these fall outside Part L requirements. The integral cascade water management system ensures that moisture drains to the outside of the building and air leakage meets Part L criteria.

The continuous rooflights are available up to 2.4m wide in both barrel vault and linked pyramid options. They are manufactured nominally in one metre sections, which interlock—facilitating easy on site assembly. This provides designers, architects and contractors with a wide range of design options.
