Roof Maker, one of the UK’s leading rooflight manufacturer, is celebrating ten years of partnership with world-renowned warm edge experts Edgetech.
Roof Maker’s extensive product offering boasts exceptional thermal performance, robustness, user-friendliness and style, consisting of bespoke roof lights engineered to be best-in-class.
As consumer tastes have shifted, and demand for premium, high-performance glazing products has grown, the fast-growing firm has successfully positioned itself as the leading roof light supplier to the booming higher end of the market – something which arguably wouldn’t have been possible without support from Super Spacer, the pioneering flexible foam warm edge spacer from Edgetech.
CEO Paul Mildenstein commented:
At Roof Maker, we strive to challenge the idea that all rooflight products are the same. We all know that consumers are more discerning and demanding than ever. Today, they want it all - stunning aesthetics, exceptional performance and maximal user-friendliness.
That’s why our products are triple-glazed as standard, and offer large expanses of glass to maximise natural light – but from a design point of view, that does present some challenges.
The more glass a product has, the higher the risk of it losing heat and energy – which is what makes Edgetech’s Super Spacer such a vital part of every product we produce. With Edgetech’s help, our products can achieve the best thermal performance of any rooflight in the industry.
What’s more, Super Spacer is a perfect fit for the more unconventional products we produce, too – like the circular O-Lite rooflight. Super Spacer’s flexibility means we can achieve outstanding thermal performance on a round product, without the need for the expensive and time-consuming bending that would be required with a rigid spacer.
Edgetech Managing Director Chris Alderson commented:
At Edgetech, we’re never happier than when we’re helping industry-leading fabricators push the boundaries of product performance.
For triple-glazed units, Super Spacer is ideal. The temperature within triple units, especially when used in roofs, can easily exceed the maximum required of volatile fog tests in current European standards.
With some spacers, this could create a problem – if they’re not compliant with higher international standards they could give off volatiles when overheated. But with Super Spacer, there’s no issue – we’ve successfully tested it from -40 to 85˚C, and it’s stood up to temperatures everywhere from Alaska to Dubai.
It’s been fantastic watching Roof Maker’s phenomenal growth over the past decade – and we can’t wait to see where their dedication to innovation takes them in the next ten years.
