Unmatched strength 

Made from Aluminium, the Korniche Roof Lantern is engineered with meticulous precision, establishing itself as the indisputable champion in strength and stiffness within the market. 

Its design flawlessly accommodates maximum glass sizes without the additional need for rafters, setting it apart in its league. 

Seamless construction and installation 

The design of the Korniche Roof Lantern is a testament to seamless construction. With only the base of the external upstand requiring silicone for secure placement, this eliminates the need for extra sealants. Pre-drilled holes in the beams means measurements or markings during installation are not needed.

This user-friendly process allows a single person to handle units up to an impressive 200cm in length! 

Also, one of the standout features of the Korniche Roof Lantern is its simplicity in installation. It’s often described as a ‘breeze to fit’, taking only minutes to install and seconds to glaze. 

Unmatched thermal efficiency 

With a fully thermal break design, this significantly minimises heat transfer by incorporating breaks that connect external and internal aluminium elements. 

This thoughtful construction ensures a remarkable reduction in heat transmission, complemented by Low-E coated glazing panes that trap heat within the building. With a low U-value of 1.2W/m²k, the Korniche Roof Lantern stands as a beacon of thermal efficiency. 

Security and peace of mind 

When it comes to security, the Korniche Roof Lantern prioritises security and ease of maintenance. Factory-fitted seals and gaskets provide added peace of mind, while an innovative glass lock system with tamper-proof fasteners ensures the glass remains secure long after installation. 

This attention to detail guarantees comfort, aesthetic harmony and robust safety measures. 

Versatility and customisation 

Beyond its exceptional features, the Korniche Roof Lantern offers various benefits. From a choice of standard and RAL colours to square pyramid designs and a wide range of glass tint options, it caters to diverse preferences, so you can find a lantern that matches your home perfectly. 

How much is the Korniche Roof Lantern?

The cost of the Korniche Roof Lantern can typically range from around £600 to £3000 or more. This variation in price depends on several factors, including; the size (whether bespoke or standard), glass choice, colour choice and whether you require additional features such as openers for ventilation. 

It’s also important not to forget about the installation costs too, which can vary based on your location and the complexity of the installation process (you’ll be pleased to hear that the Korniche lantern can be installed and glazed extremely quickly!). 

When it comes to selecting a reputable installer for your lantern, be sure to check out the installer’s reviews and credentials to ensure quality service and a seamless installation experience.
