You already know the traditional skylights are like mounting a window on your roof. They only supply light to the areas immediately above them, so what happens to your windowless office that doesn’t support traditional skylights? The solution that should come to mind is the sun tunnels, and at Universal Roofs, we have a variety of them depending on your need and preference.
Rigid skylights are ideal for rooms you’d like an abundance of sunlight in. Most importantly, it is often easy to install in rooms that have a clear path from your roof, loft or attic to the intended room. If you’re confused about the compatibility of this skylight type with your room, leave the work to us, we will make the right choice after consulting you, of course. Rigid skylights are usually fixed and can only be adjusted slightly, which earned them their name. Since these types of skylights are installable directly from your roof to the room below, you can expect little to no bounces, which means you get more natural light from them. They can distribute light up to 20m in a room.
We make rigid skylights from sections of straight or adjustable aluminium tubes that have a reflective surface.
It is not ideal for rooms you don’t plan on spending a lot of time in or if you just want to store things there. This is because we don’t want you wasting all that sunlight on a room you don’t use often, although it will still serve its desired purpose. At Universal roofs, we guarantee you an exceptional and hitch-free installation.
We are here to transform that dark corner in your house into a bright and beautiful place. Our rigid skylight is sure to give your room the best sunlight experience better than other types of skylight.
Will I get the best experience with my room, not in the southward direction?
The answer might be surprising for you. It’s a resounding yes, we are that confident in our rigid skylight. With this type of skylights, it doesn’t matter if your room is in the south, its reflective surface and manner of installation makes sure it maximizes the sunlight that shines through it. This is why you should choose Universal Roofs to do the installation for optimal results. Our installation is not dependent on the direction your room faces or even weather condition. We promise and deliver on excellent lighting every single time.
Why rigid skylights?
- They supply natural lighting in places you can’t install the regular or traditional skylights
- Easy and quick installation for any roof type from shingles to shake roofs
- They are ideal for really dark places like your closets, bathrooms or interior rooms
- Available in customised forms for your roof type, be it sloped or flat models
- You can easily access the straight tube or elbow extension type we have available.
Due to the fact that when rays of light bend or bounce their intensity tends to diminish, we design our rigid skylight at universal roofs to supply the most illumination to your room below by maximising the highly reflective tunnel of the tube.
The rigid skylight is the more expensive choice in all the types of skylights, but this doesn’t mean you should write it off. As long as you have it installed by our team of experts at Universal Roofs, you don’t need to worry about the technicalities of installing or how well your skylight will stand the test of time.
