Ventilation & Access Options

Whatever the size and shape of the space, fresh air will be as important as natural daylight to those using it. Stardome rooflights are available with a wide range of ventilation options that ensure the finished roof admits the right amount of light and air to suit every need.

Hit and Miss ventilation

Hit and Miss ventilation is a great way to provide minimal background air circulation and comes as standard via adjustable vents fitted to 2 sides of your chosen upstand. A system of 4-sided ventilation, offering increased air flow, is also available on request.

Rotary Ventilation

Set into the side wall of the ventilation zone the vents are fully protected from wind-borne water, debris and insect ingress, by an integral continuous weather cowl. The vents are on two sides of the frame and, when closed, form a virtual triple-skin chamber which keeps air leakage to a minimum. An integral water management system also helps ensure that any moisture is drained to the outside of the building.

Manual Hinged Ventilation

Vents are easily controlled with a portable winding rod which comes as standard. Ventilation levels can be precisely managed by hinging the dome section away from the upstand by 5mm – 300mm (dependent on the size of the rooflight). For those looking for a more minimalistic manual hinged mechanism, an electric chain opener is also available in place of the traditional worm gear arrangement.

Electric Hinged Ventilation

Vents can be easily and precisely controlled from a wall-mounted switch. The mechanism hinges the dome section away from the upstand from 5mm – 300mm (as standard) but for those that need more air circulation the electric hinged option can be supplied with a longer chain actuator. The electric hinged mechanism is 230V mains powered (as standard) and a 24V option is also available (please contact us for details).

Access Hatches

Stardome Access Hatch RooflightWhere access to a roof space is needed, Stardome rooflights can double up as a means of light and access. The hinged access hatch frame opens to approximately 85°. They are secured from the inside by a handle and lockable hatch with gas-assisted struts to ensure the rooflight stays open when in use.

Stardome access hatches are only available with vertical upstands to ensure you get the maximum width to enable safe and easy passage. Stardome access hatches are also available with electric hinged operation via 240V actuators for those who want more convenient access to the roof area at the touch of a button.
