The National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers is one of the most active and influential trade associations relative to the size of its membership.
NARM is made up of most of the UK’s leading rooflight businesses and represents all types of rooflighting products.
Meeting on a quarterly basis (plus additional specific sub committee meetings) NARM engenders co-operation between member companies, to develop and maintain standards and codes of practice – and to provide authoritative information on rooflighting specification design and installation.
NARM members must comply with the appropriate UK Building Regulations and Quality Standards to ensure the highest quality rooflights that will comply with all appropriate regulations.
Last year, NARM became a supplier member of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors. In 2017, together with the NFRC, NARM will work hard to provide installation guidance and support for best rooflighting practice among roofing contractors.
NARM’s influential Technical Committee plays an active role in advising the Government on future Building Regulations, and has just published new guidance on glass specification for rooflights which is available on the NARM website. This will be followed later this year by a document outlining the new Approved Document Part Q: Security in Dwellings – and how this affects rooflight specification.
NARM’s website offers a complete library of NARM Technical Documents giving guidance on many aspects of rooflighting best practice. Also on the website, NARM has published a RIBA approved on-line CPD seminar, entitled ‘An introduction to daylighting with rooflights’.
NARM is a member of Eurolux and the Construction Products Association, further strengthening the Association’s position and voice within the construction sector.
In addition, NARM works closely with the Advisory committee for Roofsafety and actively supports initiatives for site safety.
