Starglaze glass rooflights are star quality rooflights providing a choice of natural lighting solutions for projects of virtually any size. Whatever the size or space, there will be a Starglaze rooflight or skylight to fit.
Starglaze upstands are designed for use with Starglaze rooflights to provide the best thermal interface when combined as a unit. When used together they help make the roof more thermally efficient and reduce energy bills for the user.
Fresh air will be as important as natural daylight to those using it. Starglaze 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.
Designed to reduce smoke build-up, helping to provide a safer escape route for occupants and access for fire-fighting personnel. we provide a complete package of smoke ventilation options.

Glass & Glazing Options
The operational case for glass rooflights is impressive: superb aesthetics, superior structural performance and thermal properties, making it the ideal choice for most rooflight or skylight applications.
All Starglaze units are double-glazed for improved heat insulation and energy conservation with the option to further increase the specification to triple glazing if required. Depending on the size of your chosen Starglaze unit, the glass specification will range from a standard 6mm thick clear toughened outer pane, a 6.4mm laminated low E inner pane separated by a 16mm air cavity (28.8mm overall) which can be increased to a larger non-standard 34.8mm unit overall when a thicker 10mm outer pane and 8.8mm laminated low E inner pane is required for larger single piece glazed applications.
How this works: air is a poor conductor of heat and therefore reduces the heat transfer between the two panes of glass. The result is that this helps to keep more heat in during the winter, and out during those hot summer days. The panes are separated by a spacer bar and the perimeter of the unit is sealed resulting in a hermetically sealed unit.
What is Low-E?
Low Emissivity (Low-E) glass has a special coating normally applied to one side, designed to reflect heat back into a room and thus reduces heat loss. The extent to which Low-E glass reduces heat loss is measured by its U-value; the lower the U-value the better the thermal insulation.
