High quality thermoformed rooflights designed to make optimum use of natural light. Em-Domes are offered in a wide range of sizes, shapes and glazing options to meet virtually any specifier and client requirement. Em-Dome rooflights are thermoformed from UV protected, co-extruded polycarbonate sheet and are available in solid single, double, triple, quad skin or Eco multiwall construction. Solid glazed units use a 3 mm (minimum) thick glazing and have been tested and certified according to EN 1873:1200 J, and ACR(M): 001: 2005 Class B.

Em-Domes are tested to the highest standards and are proven suitable for use on most flat roofs, including single ply, felt, hot-melt, asphalt, liquid, GRP and lead. They are normally specified with Whitesales proprietary insulated curbs but can also be installed on existing builder’s curbs. Higher security, access and ventilation options are available.

Features:

  • Choice of dome, pyramid or trapezoidal shape.
  • Compliant with HSG33 recommendations.
  • Ventilation and access options available.
  • A range of upstands to accommodate new roof insulation.
  • Patented high security screwbolt fixing.
