CHOICE OF OPENING MECHANISM
Fixed or Opening...or both!
Because all of our rooflights are completely bespoke to your requirements, you can choose whether you prefer a fixed pane or an opening casement, which will provide greater ventilation for your room.
If you are installing a large rooflight with several sections, you might even want something that is part fixed and part opening, it really is down to your individual design preference.
Opening rooflight mechanisms
If you opt for an opening rooflight, then you can choose to have either a manually operated version, or something that is electronically actuated. Our manual rooflights include either a solid brass or 316 stainless manual screw jack winder. Electric opening rooflights are operated via electrically operated chain drives with a variety of control options, including rain and wind sensors, wall switches or remote control handsets.
If your rooflight is larger than 1000mm x 1300mm in either orientation then the weight and size will most likely require you to have an electrically operated option.
Stella also offers a conservation access rooflight with gas strut assisted opening. For more information please get in touch with our team.
