1. GLASS ROOF / SLOPE GLAZING
  • Construction in steel (Powdercoated or Wet Spray)
  • Timber (Varnished or painted)
  • Aluminum (Powdercoated)
  • Glass mainly laminated with polished edges
  • Toughened glass can be used but must be supported on all four sides by a frame
  • Glass choice is important to reduce heat, glare and UV
  • Ventilation (i.e. large areas with no vertical ventilation) is important to reduce excess heat. Operated manually or by electronic remote control, smoke detectors, and rain sensors are available
  • Condensation outlets at base of frame. Moisture can pass through the frame (especially important in Spa's, Bathroom's, Atrium's and Enclosed Pool areas
  • Glass overhang with aluminum edging is necessary if the vertical glass or wall joins the glass roof, thus reducing stainmarks
  • Structural glazing tape (Thermobond 6 x 9mm) and structual Silicon are used
  • Acrylic silicon applied between frame and wall (closes hairline gaps) to complete internal finishing
  • Screws and fixing bolts (covered with plastic cap heads)

2. SUNSPACE / CONSERVATORY
  • See Glass Roof / Slope Glazing

3. BAY WINDOWS
  • See Glass Roof/Slope Glazing
  • If butt jointing vertical glass to slope is done without overhang, the staining of upright sections will occur. You will also not be able to have condensation outlets.
  • If going for ventilating vertical windows, overhang is imperative.

4. GLASS WALKWAY
  • See Glass Roof / Slope Glazing
  • Generally one can use clear glass or tinted for aesthetics, as there is no heat build up in open sided areas.

5. SKYLIGHT PATIO SYSTEMS
  • See Glass Roof / Slope Glazing
  • Large glass area on patio's are not always practical as one is only protected against the rain and not the direct sunlight. (Unless blinds are fitted)
  • If going for a Solid Roof, Skylights should be fitted in the vicinity of a window or sliding door to allow light to pass into the adjoining room/rooms.
  • The Skylight should be ± 800 in width and ± the same as the door or window in lenght. This will allow the same amount of light in, as before the patio was added.
  • If patio has a balcony on top, see Glass Floors.
