How do I Measure and choose the correct size Atlas Lantern?
Measuring to pre-built timber upstand

To calculate your required size, measure the length and width from the outside edge of your timber upstand. as demonstrated in the image.
If you have a roof opening but Upstands are not built yet.
measure the length and width of your roof opening and add 140mm to both dimensions to allow for your upstands. This will give you the external dimension of your roof light.

Do I really need Triple Glazing?
On Paper Triple Glazed roof lights are the ideal choice for modern homes and can offer u-values as low as 0.6 W/m²K. However, opinion is divided on whether triple glazing has any real thermal impact in the home. Quite often they do very little to reduce your utility bills and the initial costs far outweigh any savings.
