About us

Since Xtralites’ foundation in 1993, we have sought to deliver the highest levels of professionalism, expertise and innovation to specifiers, installers and users of rooflights. By 1995 we had the largest technical team for rooflights in the UK, with BBA accreditations for our entire range of standard and modular rooflights the following year, and by 1997 we had become the leading independent producer of rooflights in the country.

We have always invested in the development of our technical expertise, product development and manufacturing capabilities. We are committed to the principle of independently-tested performance characteristics – including ‘hot-box’ testing of products by the National Physical Laboratory to establish accurate U-Values.

The diverse systems available range for simple ‘dome on a kerb’ units to the most technically demanding, custom designed structural glazing. The company continues to lead the industry, developing new innovations such as Lumera technology.

Our senior team members work with RIBA in providing specification details for the NBS programme and also delivery RIBA accredited presentations as part of the CPD lecture resource, as well as an active member of the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers (NARM).

In recognition of our dedication to quality, Xtralite is ISO 9001:2000 accredited for design, manufacturing and customer satisfaction.
