Roof lanterns are a great choice if you have a flat roof. Not only are they better at channelling light from all angles than their flat counterparts, but they can also create a stunning architectural showpiece in your home.

The Roof Maker Slimline® roof lantern is designed to allow more natural light into your home.  With a super slim aluminium frame, it provides an almost uninterrupted view of the outside world. Because we manufacture to fit the internal dimensions of your rooflight space, our lanterns allow 25% more light in your home than other similar products and it is the only ultra slim roof lantern on the market that can incorporate an opening vent.

Free Guide

Choosing the right rooflight for your particular project needs time and research. To help we have put together this short guide on our Slimline® Roof Lantern so that you have all the details you need.

Opening Vent

Our Slimline® roof lantern, is the only ultra slim system available that can incorporate an opening vent,  operated manually or electrically. The electrically operated version is available with climate control and a rain sensor so you can just set your desired temperature and your vent will do the rest.


Slide Opening

To truly bring the outside in, choose our electric slide opening Slimline® lantern. Open using the remote control, either partially or fully for ventilation and roof access. A built-in rain sensor is also included which automatically closes the lantern if rain is detected. Read more...


Glass Properties

We make all our glass units in-house so we have total control of our product quality and can design more features into your final roof lantern.  Choose a Roof Maker Slimline® roof lantern and you can pick from four distinct glass options which may be selected individually or combined for even better performance:

  • Energy saving
  • Temperature control
  • Noise pollution
  • Security

Glass Tints

All of our glass options are also available with a choice of tint:
  • Clear Glass – our standard glass
  • Subtle Blue Tint – removes the harsh glare from sunlight and protects furniture from the fading effects of sunlight
  • Bronze Tint – similar to the blue tint, this will reduce glare and protect the colour of your furnishings
  • Satinova Privacy Glass – creates a natural filtered light.  It is not possible to see through this glass from either side.

Easy Clean

All our Slimline® roof lanterns are supplied with an easy clean glass coating.  This special feature helps to keep your rooflights looking their best for longer by utilising the sun’s rays to help break down small organic, carbon based dirt on the rooflight into small particles.  During rain fall, the coating enables the water to spread out like a large sheet rather than droplets so as it runs down the surface of the glass it acts like a squeegee taking the dirt with it and leaving you with a sparkling, streak and smear-free rooflight.
