Barrel vault rooflights are popular in applications where continuous runs of rooflight openings are required in flat, low pitched, curved and standing seam or secret fix roofing systems, or where in-plane or individual domed or pyramid type rooflights are not suitable or adequate to provide sufficient light transmission effectively.
The provision of this style of rooflight allows for high levels of natural light to be provided into the building with all the associated benefits of natural daylight and energy saving. As an out of plane installation, barrel vault rooflights are usually mounted on kerbs or upstands in continuous runs to suit the application. These upstands are generally a minimum of 150mm high for adequate and long-term weather sealing of the junction between the rooflight and waterproofing layer.
Zenon Arc barrel vault rooflights are supplied as double skin or triple skin insulated modular rooflight units containing the patented Insulator system, and are characterised by longitudinal ribs for extra rigidity. They can be supplied as an un-insulated panel where there are no specific thermal compliance requirements.
They may be constructed from Zenon Pro and Zenon Evolution rooflight sheets, depending upon the performance specification, durability and non-fragility periods required, to provide two daylight opening width options of 1000mm and 1200mm.
Zenon Arc Pro rooflights are manufactured using the conventionally reinforced Zenon Pro 24 rooflight sheets, and Zenon Arc Evolution rooflights are manufactured using the high strength, low embodied carbon Zenon Evolution LC1 outer sheet combined with a Zenon Pro liner.
When choosing the high performance Zenon Evolution, the system delivers embodied carbon levels that are significantly lower than the industry standard making a greater contribution to the target of overall building carbon neutrality.
