Blade Roofing Old Rooflights

Blade Roofing completes refurbishment in Croydon.

Blade Roofing are a national business specialising in reactive and planned roofing services using their own fleet of powered access equipment. They undertake a variety of refurbishment projects in slating and tiling, built-up felt, sheeting and cladding, singly-ply membranes, liquid applied coatings and a variety of dilapidation remediation specifications. They have two offices located in Bradford and Essex.

The refurbishment project included Zenon Arc; the modular GRP barrel vaulted The rooflight system. A 1200mm daylight opening with 8 runs of 60.4 metres was required. The rooflights specified and supplied were double skin Zenon Arc Pro type delivering a U-value of 2.9W/m²K, 66% light transmission and 66% total solar transmission. Due to the nature of the GRP material used the rooflights offer excellent diffused light, reducing glare and minimising the creation of shadows throughout the building.

Rob Bland, Managing Director of Blade Roofing said “we were invited to tender via referral from a Quantity Surveyor that we’d worked with before at another company. We won the tender and completed the project within a tight time frame due to the busy vehicle repair centre below”.



He continued to say “safety was paramount and we worked closely with the client to install safety netting and scaffolding in a narrow time frame to work around their busy schedule. Having a straightforward install was critical given the time allowed and we were very pleased to use the Hambleside Danelaw product.”

Natural daylight has been well documented as being beneficial in respect to health and well being, safety, productivity and energy savings within industrial buildings.

Rob summarised his teams experience of the Zenon Arc system saying “the back office gave us all excellent support to ensure that the install went smoothly. Our installers also found the rooflights exceptionally easy to fit”.
