Central ASL , a leading manufacturer of aluminium products , has launched their new Flat Rooflight System , created to bring light and space into every corner of a home using an elegant , aesthetically pleasing design .
Contemporary but practical , this new system is designed to meet the needs of the modern building using environmentally friendly materials .
Central ASL Director Paul Woods says : “ There ’ s now huge demand for stylish , functional and competitively-priced products that can help homeowners improve ventilation and let in more natural light .
“ With our new Flat Rooflight System , our customers can tap into that increasingly lucrative market , and appeal to new customers . Stylish and incredibly versatile , they can be tailored to the needs of virtually any project or property – and provide excellent opportunities for upselling , too .” Once installed , the secure rooflight maximises natural light , adding elegant appeal
to any home , office , school or hotel , whilst offering additional natural ventilation .
This innovative and practical made to measure rooflight comes in a wide range of sizes , is quick to assemble onsite , is easily transportable , and is available in three different designs – Fixed , Ventilation , and Egress . The Fixed design is fully secure and thermally efficient , and is perfect for any home or office , allowing natural light
to flow freely throughout the building through the roof .
The Ventilation design opens up to 360mm to enable air to filter into any room , using fully concealed chain drive actuators to create a light and airy living space .
Lastly , the Egress design comes with built-in gas springs and espagnolet locking , designed to open up to a 70 degree angle , allowing access to the rooftop if required .
In addition , the Flat Rooflight System has been designed to allow glass to be removed in the event of a double glazed unit failure . Using a removable PVC cassette to which the glass is bonded , it ’ s mechanically fixed to the frame , meaning only the cassette will need replacing in the event of a glass replacement .

The Stellar aluminium bifold door has proved popular with fabricators and installers ever since it came to market last year . Its innovative , quick-fitting design has seen a growing number of installers fitting Stellar , and this appeal looks set to increase as a result of the new bifold hardware which allows for wider door apertures .
Paul Booth , Design Director – Aluminium Products , explains : “ The new Stellar bifold door hardware allows for an increase in sash sizes of 1200w x 2500h with a maximum height plus width of 3500 . This allows the
Stellar bifold to be used in wider door apertures which are very much on-trend with consumers at this time .”

innovative , quickfitting design

The hardware ( available in black finish as standard and 7016 anthracite grey too ) is PAS24:2016 compliant , meets BS 6375-2 accreditation for the operation and load strength of internal / external doorsets and has undergone all weather , security and cycle testing at the new larger door sash sizes
Like all products in the Stellar portfolio , the Stellar bifold door was designed to help installers maximise their productivity on site with the quick fitting properties of the products . This is achieved by the patent-pending knock-in beads , typically seen on PVC-U products , which makes glazing quick and straightforward .
The ease with which the Stellar bifold is installed is impressive and it ’ s an element of the overall system ’ s design that has never been more important with the industry fitting in the ‘ new normal ’.
