Lanterns

Whether replacing an existing roof or building a new extension, a lantern roof from Shield Exteriors is a great way to pull natural light into any room. Lanterns offer exceptional benefits unmatched by any other roof on the market. The internal and external design compliments any home whilst flooding any room with maximum light.

No clunky bars or supports cluttering the ridge. No thick, chunky profiles dominating the glazing.
Super strong, light, 40mm aluminium frame rafters create slim, elegant roof profiles with excellent thermal performance.
Compared to conventional roofs, we can slash the visible width and sight lines
of rafters by 30% and the main internal feature ridge by 70%.

The slimline thermally broken aluminium rafter sections have a sleek appearance that brings a stylish ambience and modern finish, while maximising the use of light and space within your home.

All aluminium exterior coloured profiles are quality finished with powder coat paint, which is guaranteed to last. Dual coloured roofs are also available as the exterior colour can be easily changed to achieve the exterior look you desire.

MORE SKY – LESS ROOF™. Whether you’re inside looking up, or outside looking enviously in, an Atlas roof puts any property in a class of its own. Step under an Atlas roof and prepare to be amazed. The glass panes simply seem to float in the sky. The clean, sharp lines with minimal intrusion are possible thanks to the super slim 40mm frame. Unless it’s a Victorian style, there’s even no need for a boss or hood.

Unrivalled strength

Extra strong rafters mean the tie bars can be set higher, guaranteeing excellent headroom and no
intrusion into the living area. Even in large buildings the roof structure remains remarkably minimal, creating a sense of clear, free space under the eaves.
Increased roof strength means the design aesthetics and clear sight lines achievable using slim profiles, creating a roof that can suit any dwelling.

We can create anything you desire.

The combination of good design and precision
engineering means that roofs can be fitted
in almost every conceivable setting.

Contemporary or Traditional

For a modern finish, flat roof rafter caps are available in PVCu or aluminium.
Bevelled external caps create a more traditional look.

Choosing a lantern style conservatory ensures drama and style, representing the grandeur of times gone by. The two- tiered effect adds a new dimension to your conservatory and the extra ceiling height adds to the feeling of light and space.

Lanterns are typically suited to older style properties and often chosen for swimming pool enclosures. Roof lanterns can also be used to add light and space to flat roof extensions, flooding an otherwise enclosed space with light and air. Available with the option of opening rooflights, a roof lantern can turn your traditional extension into a stunning addition to your home.
