What is a Roof Lantern?
A roof lantern is installed in a flat area of the roof. It is pyramidal in shape with a raised spine and numerous large panels of double pane glass that capture light. Roof lanterns are so named because in their earliest incarnation during the Renaissance they resembled lanterns sitting atop cathedral domes.
Over the centuries the different types of buildings adopting roof lanterns greatly expanded and eventually came to include private homes. What was a predominantly masonry feature eventually became a predominantly glass feature, and that is the type of roof lanterns we at RLRL provide our customers in York and beyond.
Unlike skylights that can be installed on virtually any roof, regardless of its angle, and which lay flush to the roof surface, roof lanterns are installed on flat portions of the roof and extend upward with a pyramidal shape. Roof lanterns are an ideal addition to your Orangerie but they are not limited to one type of space. Any room under a flat roof will benefit mightily from a roof lantern or roof lanterns, including bedrooms, living rooms and kitchens.
