Frequently Asked Questions


How do I clean the inside of a roof lantern?

Cleaning the inside of a roof lantern is not as hard as many people think, but you will need to be careful and patient. Begin by moving any furniture out from under the roof lantern, including rugs. Next, set up a step ladder tall enough to allow you to reach the top of the roof lantern. We strongly urge you to have another person present to hold the ladder steady while you work. Next, dust the inside of the lantern to remove cobwebs and the like. Then spray a very mild cleaning solution onto the glass, then take a damp sponge and wipe down the inside of the glass panels. Rinse out the sponge and use it to remove any residue from the windows and frames.

What are the benefits of installing a roof lantern?

The following are some of the benefits homeowners typically enjoy after installing a roof lantern.

  • A brighter home: A roof light will turn a formerly dingy space into a bright, welcoming one.
  • Enhanced home value: It is likely that your home will enjoy a noticeable bump in market value after installing a roof lantern.
  • Lower energy bills: That’s because you won’t have to rely on electric lights to illuminate that formerly dark and dingy space. Mother nature will now do it for you.

Do you offer an installation service?

Sorry, but we are not able to install your roof lantern. We do, however, make sure that every Brett Martin roof lantern we sell comes complete with detailed installation instructions that you can use yourself or hand over to the contractor you hire to perform the installation. If you lose the instructions simply call us and we will send you a copy.

Will I need planning permission for my roof lantern?

Because it protrudes quite a ways above the established roof line it is likely you will need to obtain planning permission before installing your new roof lantern. Also, if your home is a listed building, or if it is located in a conservation area it is likely you will need to obtain planning permission.

Do roof lanterns come with a warranty?

We sell only the highest quality roof lanterns and stand behind every one with a generous warranty, so you can rest easy. If you would like to learn more about our warranty call our customer care department on 020 4538 3079. 

Fitting and Measurements

The PDF installation guide can be found on the download tab on this page. The size you select to order should match the final dimensions of your external upstand. For example, an external upstand measuring 1000mm x 2000mm would require a roof lantern purchase measuring 1000mm x 2000mm. The product comes with a +20mm tolerance so this size would also fit if the external upstand size is 1020mm by 2020mm. The upstand should be minimum 85mm wide and 150mm high. Brett Martin Roof Lantern rooflights are intended for installation onto a fully weathered and insulated builders upstand on flat. The surface of flat roofs normally require some degree of pitch to ensure adequate water runoff. For aesthetic reasons we recommend that the upstand is built with 0° pitch i.e. not parallel with the pitched roof surface. The rooflight can accommodate being installed on an upstand with a pitch of up to 5° but please note that this will likely result in a ‘lopsided’ appearance.

Brett Martin Roof Lantern Glazing Performance

Thermal Performance

Thermal transmittance of rooflights is assessed in the horizontal plane for compliance with Part L of building regulations. There is currently no method set out for assessing the thermal performance of lantern rooflights, so the method shown in NARM NTD2 has been adopted as the most appropriate. All variants of Brett Martin Roof Lantern have a better thermal transmittance than the limiting value in Part L of 2.2 W/m2K. The thermal transmittance values (assessed horizontally) are shown below. For Ud values calculated in the vertical plane please contact Brett Martin Daylight Systems.

Acoustic Performance

Brett Martin Roof Lantern units achieve a direct airborne sound insulation value of 35db (Rw).

Wind and Snow Loads

Brett Martin Roof Lantern has been tested to show that, when correctly fitted in accordance with our instructions, will resist wind loads calculated in accordance with BS EN 1991-1-4: 2005, and imposed loads in accordance with BS EN 1873: 2005.

Thermal Fractures

Brett Martin Roof Lantern rooflights are manufactured using double glazing which includes an inner pane of annealed, laminated safety glass, which is essential for ensuring the safety of those below the rooflight through the prevention falling glass from accidental breakage. In some circumstances, annealed, laminated safety glass can be subject to thermal stress fracture in the event of uneven heat build-up directly under the glass. Installation of blinds, or any other alterations made to the lightwell below the rooflight, must be done so with consideration to the risk of thermal stress fracture. In the case of blinds, the risk of thermal stress fracture can never be fully removed, but it can be reduced by choosing light coloured blinds and positioning them as far away from the glass as possible. More detailed guidance can be obtained upon request - please contact the technical department.
