Is a UV Rooflight the Right Choice for Your Property?
If you’re not sure whether to install a rooflight with plain glass or UV glass, take a few minutes to think about the following factors carefully:
Fading – If your new UV skylight or rooflight will be in a position that allows direct sunlight to reach valuable pieces of furniture, or perhaps an expensive rug, UV glazing could provide welcome protection from the sun’s rays.
Additional Heat – The installation of a skylight with clear glass will normally result in an increase in internal temperature. In some cases, this may be a welcome side effect but in others, it may be a cause for concern. If you are planning to install a skylight in a south-facing roof, in a room that already gets quite warm in the summer, UV glazing could be an option that’s well worth considering.
Glare – Installing a skylight in a location that receives direct sunlight could result in unwanted glare at a certain time of the day. A UV roof lantern, rooflight or skylight would be the preferred option in such cases. Frosted glazing is another alternative you may wish to consider, especially if privacy is also a concern.
