TLP roof window is an aluminum-clad plastic structure manufactured with the use of prime quality PVC profiles re-enforced from the inside with steel profiles. Such constructed windows are durable and their maintenance is limited to an absolute minimum. The material used in the window production does not absorb water, hence it is particularly recommended for rooms with elevated humidity levels (kitchens, bathrooms or laundry rooms).
OptiLight brand belongs to FAKRO group (the second largest manufacturer of roof windows in the world). OptiLight products offer high quality at an affordable price. Modern technology of material handling and processing, quality control in every stage of production, as well as tests performed by independent laboratories guarantee high quality of OptiLight skylights. The shaping of the outer paneling of Optilight window makes her look fashionable and aesthetic. OptiLight roof windows are CE marked.
TLP is a centre pivot structure. The main advantage of this design is convenient and safe washing of the external glass surface. The sash can be rotated through 180 degrees and then blocked for washing by means of a bolt. From the width of 94 cm the window is equipped with 2 handles.
A handle situated in the lower section of the window ensures usage comfort. Even in case of windows installed higher, there is no need for helping oneself with, e.g. a chair in order to open them. The window closing system, apart from keeping the window closed tightly, offers also a micro-opening facility which allows ventilation of the room.
The sealing system applied, ensures superb window tightness, reducing heat losses as well as eliminating rainwater infiltration.
TLP windows are fitted with insulated glazing units. External toughened glass provides increased resistance to mechanical damage, e.g. hailstones and the low emission coating on internal pane limits undesirable heat gain in the room. The window is characterised by an overall heat transfer coefficient of Uw=1.3 W/m²K.
It is equipped with factory pre-fixed lower brackets for window installation on battens in the roof structure. Installation of this type of windows does not require any additional skills as it its substantially no different than installation of timber roof windows.
A flashing is an essential element allowing correct installation of a takfönster in the roof slope. The precisely designed systemic elements of the flashing enable tight and durable integration of the window with roofing. It is very important as the main task of the flashing is to drain water and snow away from the window and protect it against the wind. The flashings are manufacture from aluminium sheet, coated with hard-wearing polyester lacquer. The basic color is umbra grey (RAL 7022), thanks to which windows go well with standard colors of roofing materials. Flashings are used for connecting the windows with roofing and it is the roofing which decides about their selection.
