How do I measure and choose the correct size Korniche Lantern?
The Korniche Roof Lantern is custom-made to your exact sizes. We work from external measurements and recommend your upstand is a minimum of 70mm wide.
To calculate your required size, measure the length and width from the outside edge of your timber upstand and fitted waterproof membrane.
We would also recommend increasing the size of the lantern by 12mm in length and width so that you have a 6mm overhang all the way around.
Please see the image below for more information.
If you have a roof opening but your upstands are not built yet.
Measure the length and width of your roof opening. If your timber upstand is 70mm thick, add 152mm to your internal measurements. This will give you your external measurements and will allow for an extra 6mm in width and length for water drainage.

What is Solar Heat Reflection?
It is the ability of a skylight to return solar energy to the atmosphere, effectively keeping the heat out. The percentage value represents the percentage of the total amount of heat that gets reflected off the skylight.
The higher the percentage, the more heat it reflects off.
What is Light Transmission?
It is the amount of light that can successfully pass through the glass without being reflected or absorbed. The higher the value, the more light that can pass through. The percentage value represents the percentage of the total amount of light that passes through the skylight and into your home.
The higher the value, the more sunlight passes through.
What is a U-value?
Thermal transmittance, also known as U-value, is a measure of heat loss through the structure. It is measured in W/m2K. The lower the value, the better the insulation.
The UK Building Regulations require a maximum of 2.2 W/m2K in existing dwellings and an average of 1.2 - 1.7 W/m2K for new dwellings on rooflights.
