First Degree Systems
The new Z-wave FTP-V and FTU-V Electro centre pivot roof windows from FAKRO benefit from wireless communication based on a low power radio frequency. The windows can be used alongside blinds and other household gadgets from over 200 manufacturers. Programmable remote controls and single and multi-channel wall keyboards enable the user to create individual systems with an almost unlimited range, all from one chip.
Jolie Ho of Douglas Stuart Architects explains why sourcing the right conservation roof windows was difficult until they contacted Fakro GB who were able to supply the specific size and quality required for the redevelopment of Knockbain Free Church in Bogallan, near Inverness, a Category C(S) listed building.
Fakro GB announce that the Passive House certificate has been awarded for its quadruple-glazed FTT U8 Thermo roof window.
NARM, the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers, launch a new website covering all aspects of rooflight design and specification, with individual sections covering glass, thermoplastic and GRP rooflights.
Fakro launch the FTP-V P2 Secure roof window that provides a previously unseen level of burglary protection.
