Opening Mechanisms


To compliment the interior our Lumen Conservation sky lights are supplied with a British made, solid brass winding mechanism. Not only are these winders beautifully crafted ours are designed with a 20mm diameter spindle thickness and a 1.5mm pitched thread. This close thread gives our winders a far smoother operation. Each winder is produced on a CNC lathe and hand assembled to ensure a consistency that cannot be achieved using a manual lathe.

Hand and pole mechanisms, supplied in brass as standard, are included in the price of the rooflight. Both options are available in chrome for an additional £25 per winder.

In addition to the manual options, we can offer a wide selection of electric mechanisms. With a particularly compact design and high efficiency, the drive requires only a small amount of space for mounting position. Kato Radio electric winders are supplied as the standard electric option and operate using a remote control. Please speak to us for further details concerning additional rain, temperature and total closure options.

Chain drives represent the most modern and elegant solution for window remote controls. Due to their construction, they are closely attached to the profile of the window. When the chain is completely extended, it is fixed, so that even bigger pressure burdens can be carried out and there is sufficient stability, for example with wind. When the window is closed, the chain disappears discreetly into the drive profile, so that no disturbing rods are visible.

All our stock sized rooflights are opening as standard and are supplied with a manual winding mechanism. Whilst it is possible to use electric mechanisms, the product design remains the same. This will mean that the handle plate at the bottom of the rooflight will remain in place.

It is possible for us to remove the handle plate for a small charge. This will usually add around 4-5 days to the delivery time.

It is essential that you tell us at the point of order as we cannot remove the handle plate after this time. Any changes will be noted on your order paperwork and invoice. If you have requested that the handle plate is removed and this does not appear on your invoice, please contact us immediately on 0845 050 8746.
