Rooflight pioneer Sunsquare has launched Aero Pitch – the world’s most advanced and thermally efficient skylight for 20-60° tiled roofs.
Making its first appearance at this year’s Grand Designs Live at ExCeL London, Aero Pitch is not only fully automated; it’s condensation free, holds a BSI Kitemark for its safety and quality and is incredibly easy to install, with one universal flashing kit to fit any roof.
Justin Seldis, MD at Sunsquare, comments: “We’ve been flat-roof skylight specialists for 18 years and this is our very first model specifically designed for 20-60° roofs.
“Using our pioneering design experience, we wanted to address all the common issues people face with pitched roof skylights, such as thermal performance, condensation, safety and usability, and we’ve ended up with the most advanced skylight out there.
“But that wasn’t our only focus, we wanted to make it as straight forward as possible for installers too. That’s why we developed a universal flashing kit that will suit any tiled roof, from 20-60°.
“Our kit has everything you’ll ever need with no hidden extras needed, even for bespoke sizes. In fact, the skylight, flashing kit and upstand all come as part of the package, so installers always have everything they need to get the job done easily.”
As with all Sunsquare’s skylights, Aero Pitch offers unrivalled thermal performance and is completely thermally broken, providing an effective barrier between internal and external temperatures.
It offers U values as low as 0.5 W/m2K and is completely condensation free. It keeps rooms warm, dry and more energy efficient all year round, cutting energy bills and reducing the building’s carbon footprint too.
Aero Pitch also comes with Smartsquare, the world’s first smart switch as standard. This allows users to open or close the skylight wherever they are at the touch of a smart phone button or through smart speakers. They can even programme it to automatically open and close based on weather conditions, humidity, inside temperature, sunrise or sunset, or even their proximity to the building.
Safety is another key feature. Aero Pitch uses shatter-proof laminated glass and is top hinged for extra security. It’s also the first pitched roof skylight to hold a BSI Kitemark – a globally renowned stamp of quality. This means it’s been independently tested to destruction to ensure ultimate durability and endurance levels, giving people complete peace of mind
Justin continues: “On top of everything, we wanted to give people a skylight that was as flexible and as aesthetically pleasing as possible. Aero Pitch is sleek and stylish and can be tailor-made to suit any design. It comes in fixed and bespoke sizes, double and triple glazing, it’s compatible with any blind system and its aluminium frame can be powder-coated in any RAL colour to match any decor.
“It’s even available in a conservation format to complement more traditional architecture. With Aero Pitch, people have full design control.”
Aero Pitch is available to buy online in seven fixed sizes, and bespoke sizes are available on request. Any order is backed by a ten-year insurance warranty, including a two-year guarantee on any necessary electronics.
Visitors to Grand Designs Live, which is taking place right now and finishes on 8th May, will be able to have an exclusive look at the new Aero Pitch rooflight on stand Q80. Here, a number of Sunsquare’s other market-leading flat-roof models will also be on show.
