At Shire Doors, our aluminium roof lanterns and aluminium verandas are manufactured by Atlas, who are industry-leading experts in both residential and commercial glass roof systems.
Aluminium is an excellent material for use in roof lanterns and glass verandas because it’s incredibly strong and highly durable. It provides exceptional stability, which means that slimline aluminium frames can be used to create elegant roof profiles. This maximises the amount of glazing within the roof lantern or veranda, so that you can enjoy a better view of the sky and more natural light streaming into your home. Atlas provide the slimmest aluminium profile frames on the market.
An aluminium roof lantern is the perfect way to draw more natural light into your home, and they create an impressive design feature to add character and value to your property. They make a stylish alternative to tiled or polycarbonate roofing when used as an orangery or conservatory roof. They also work incredibly well for single-story extensions, particularly if you’re looking for a chic alternative to a flat roof or pitched traditional roof.
The slimline aluminium roof lanterns from Atlas feature integral ties, which means they don’t require unsightly tie bars. When you look up through your lantern roof system, you’ll be faced with clean, simple lines and an impressive view of the sky. During the day, you can enjoy a bright, welcoming space, and at night you can look up to see the stars in a vast expanse of sky.
An aluminium veranda is the perfect choice for contemporary homes that want to add a sophisticated design feature to their garden or patio. Garden verandas can create beautiful alfresco dining areas and can help you really make the most of your outdoor space, particularly if they’re positioned outside your patio doors. When you choose glass verandas instead of wood, tiles or polycarbonate, you allow more natural light to stream onto your patio or garden, while still getting protection from rain.
You could even install a veranda above a driveway or beside a garage to create a stylish aluminium carport. The structure can protect your car from the elements and provide easier access than garage parking can.
Atlas provides the most thermally efficient aluminium lantern roof system in the UK. The aluminium rafters they use are thermally broken to minimise conductivity and retain indoor heat, and this exceptional thermal performance is combined with strength, too. The roof system is also the UK’s strongest, despite the minimalist, slimline designs.
Atlas offer an exceptional level of customisation with their aluminium veranda and roof lantern systems. Each roof or veranda is custom made to order, which means you don’t have to be limited to standard sizes or designs. You also have a choice of bevelled or flat and PVCu or aluminium external caps. They also have a variety of traditional and contemporary styles available.
The aluminium structures are finished with a durable powder-coated finish and, with over 150 RAL colours to choose from, you can achieve a look that perfectly complements your home’s style. You could, for example, match the roof or veranda to the shade of your aluminium door or sash windows.
