Builders on a tight schedule can choose from eight sizes and three colours, selected for the Skypod Express range because they are the most frequent choices among customers. Rather than having to supply a drawing or take measurements on site, builders can now plan extensions or conversions with the standard Express dimensions in mind and get the roof lanterns to site when needed.
“There are so many variables on jobs like this, from the availability of certain tradespeople, to customer requirements and even the weather,” says Eurocell marketing manager Chris Coxon. “The idea of Skypod Express is to reduce those variables: at least you know what roof light you want and when you can get it”.
Like all Skypod roof lanterns, the Express range is supplied in kit form. Designed to be installed ‘out of the box’, quickly and easily, they even have pre-drilled screw holes for accuracy and convenience. The sleek architectural design also means that there are no fiddly finials or crestings to fit.
Skypod’s popularity in the market is growing fast, thanks in no small part to its aesthetic appeal, especially when compared to other PVC-U systems. Its contemporary design creates extra head height and volume in a room, introducing additional natural light. And with U-values as low as 1.0W/m²K achievable, Skypod offers good levels of energy efficiency and comfort for the homeowner.
Skypod often makes a good alternative to aluminium-framed rooflights, and not only because they cost significantly less. Some builders report that the coatings on aluminium frames can be easily damaged during installation and can sometimes look shabby quite quickly, whereas U-PVC frames look ‘as new’ for far longer.
Skypod Express has a 10-year guarantee – like all Skypod products – and is available in exterior and interior white; anthracite exterior and white interior and all anthracite. Two and three bar options are offered, and in a range of sizes from 1m x 1.5m up to 2m x 4m.
