Flat roofs are transformed with Skypod Roof Lanterns. The additional roof height created adds light and volume to the room below. With a simple installation process, Skypod Roof Lanterns are an impressive alternative to standard flat roof glazing.
Skypod Roof Lanterns are suitable for a wide range of building projects. They should be considered in refurbishments, extensions, or new build developments. When planning a flat roof into a building, a Skypod Roof Lantern should be a primary feature. Areas in a property that could benefit from a Skypod Roof Lantern are reception areas, classrooms, porches, orangeries, kitchen-diners, and garage conversions.
The main benefits of the range are:
With clean lines and sleek looks, there is no need for rooftop finials or crestings. Thanks to a no side rafter option, larger glass areas are possible for unimpeded views. The design of the Skypod has been created as a seamless addition to any building style. The focal point of the Skypod Roof Lantern is the glazing and the light it creates.
Sizes and Styles to Suit All
Made to order Skypod Roof Lanterns can be the main feature for several different jobs. The small square Skypod is perfect for porches, and the large version can transform a rear extension. You can choose between two bar, or three-bar pitched styles. If you are unsure about what size or style is suitable for your property, please view the Skypod brochure below to see the full range.
Natural light is beneficial for our health and wellbeing. Increasing the light levels in property with a Skypod creates a better environment for homes and workplaces. As Skypod Roof Lanterns create an extra sense of space by adding additional roof height, rooms are transformed to feel bigger. The increase in natural light can help to reduce electricity and heating bills.
In the past, aluminium was the primary material used in the construction of roof lanterns. This is an expensive material that can provide a cold and industrial appearance that is not suitable for all domestic properties. The main range of Skypod Roof Lantern is fabricated with PVC-U that can complement existing windows already installed in a property.
Installation and After Care Made Easy
With a dedicated frame system, the rafter bars line up perfectly whatever the size. Eurocell developed the Skypod Roof Lantern system to ensure fast and accurate installation. Even screw holes are predrilled to ensure quick and precise fitting.
Self-cleaning glass is also supplied in all Skypods as standard.

Choice of Colours
There are seven different frame colours in the Skypod Roof Lantern range. You can choose from; white, golden oak, rosewood, moondust grey, anthracite grey and black. The interior colour of the frame is normally white, but you have the option with the anthracite grey or black frame to have a matching interior colour. To help control the light colour, there is also a selection of five glazing options.
Temperature controlled glass prevents heat loss and keeps you cool in hot weather. Skypod Roof Lanterns can achieve U values as low as 1.0, which can help reduce your heating bills. There is no need to worry about adding blinds to reflect light or insulate. The Skypod glazing has been specifically developed to reflect light to ensure a constant room temperature.
As a well-designed and precision-made system, you can be confident that the Skypod is built to last. All parts of the have been designed to ensure superior performance. For peace of mind, every Skypod Roof Lantern has a 10-year guarantee.view
The Skypod Range
Skypod Roof Lanterns are available in a range of formats with an option to suit every project size.
Standard Skypods are rectangular in shape. For dimensions up to 1.5m x 2.75m, you do not need to have side rafters so can enjoy unimpeded views. For measurements of 2.75 x 7.45m, a side rafter is required to support the extra glazing. The largest size for the standard rectangular Skypod shape is 2.75m x 8.7m which has a three-bar gable that provides extra strength and rigidity. This size creates even wider vaulted roof lights to give the impression of a full glass ceiling.
Skypod square allows you to make a transformational impact with symmetrical architectural styling. Whatever the size, the rafter bars line up perfectly. Suitable for small spaces, the 1.5 x 1.5m square size is great for adding extra light to porches. The large 2.75m x 2.75m size can be used on its own or as a pair.
With the Skypod Acute, you can increase the pitch to 35 degrees instead of the usual 20 degrees. Using one of the smallest footprints in the glazing industry, this roof lantern has the light grab of a bigger unit that is enhanced by a narrow profile frame and is not limited by sidebars. With the smallest size available at 0.5m x 0.5m, even small extensions can benefit from day-long natural light.
The Skypod black edition has been introduced to the range to meet the demands of design-conscious property developers. Black frames are a contemporary design feature which is becoming increasingly popular. The Skypod black edition has a premium matt black frame with a high-quality finish and the same easy installation process as the rest of the range. Unlike the standard frames, the black edition is manufactured with an aluminium frame and rafter cappings. This offers a point of difference for customers who demand a premium matt black finish.
How to Measure for Your Skypod Roof Lantern
When planning for the installation of a Skypod Roof Lantern consideration need to be given to the size of the flat roof and the layout of the room below.
The aperture for the Skypod needs to have a timber upstand that protrudes by a minimum of 150mm from the roof and have a pitch of a minimum of three degrees.
You need to ensure a safe working area around all sides of the aperture, and if required, have a building survey before work commences.
The measurement for the Skypod will be determined by the size of the aperture and the timber upstand that is to be constructed for installation. The dimensions of the Skypod need to be the same as the external edge of the timber upstand. In the diagram shown below, this is indicated by the ‘SURVEY SIZE = UPSTAND EXT FACE’.
Skypod Glazing Colour Options
When ordering your Skypod Roof Lantern, you can select from five different glazing colours. The glass colour does not affect the U value, so whatever glazing option is selected the thermal efficiency is still optimised.
The coloured glass options are:
Perfect Day Super Clear – Allows all daylight through as an exact representation of outside light. U value 1.2u.
Perfect Day Super Blue – Blue colour tint to mimic a blue sky. This generates a sunnier light than can brighten up grey days. U value 1.2u.
Perfect Day Super Bronze – Gives the impression of a warm, soft light. Like the blue option, this filters light to brighten up gloomy days. U value 1.2u.
Perfect Day Super Natural – This glass colour has a slight filter to soften natural daylight. There is no noticeable colouring effect. U value 1.2u.
Perfect Day Super Blue 4s – The same colour as the Super Blue to imitate a blue sky. This option has an improved U value of 1u.
