Xtralite’s new ‘Walk-On’ rooflight leads the way in rooflight innovation

Xtralite has boosted its product range with the introduction of its revolutionary ‘Walk-On’ rooflight
Xtralite’s ‘Walk-On’ rooflight allows for foot traffic on areas such as terraces and roof gardens - or ground floor areas over basement rooms - whilst enabling natural daylight to reach the rooms beneath.

The state-of-the-art rooflight has been designed in such a way that adjacent decking or slabbing can be set level and aligned with the top face of the rooflight unit, creating smooth flat leisure areas.

As with all Xtralite products, the ‘Walk-On’ Rooflight is custom designed, detailed and manufactured for each individual application. The units, which are set to minimal fall to prevent water ponding, are available in rectangular, square or round glazing and in a range of colours and bespoke specifications to enhance design possibilities.

Bob Tweedy, Managing Director at Xtralite Rooflights comments: “We are delighted to launch our exciting new ‘Walk-On’ rooflight range. Our Technical Department invests a great deal in developing new products which not only meet customers’ needs but offer them a greater choice of high quality, best value design options for their projects. Our ‘Walk-On’ rooflights are manufactured to exact specifications at our state of the art facilities in the North East of England and delivered fully assembled, for ultimate ease and speed of installation.”

The loading capacity of these units is 1.8kN/m2 with a concentrated loading of 1.4kN, although Xtralite can also produce solutions to accommodate higher loadings. The rooflight consists of 43.5mm double glazed units with 21.5mm clear toughened laminated outer pane, 16mm airspace and 6mm clear toughened low E inner pane.
