Sheerline Roof Lantern

Roof Lantern was designed by the award-winning company Sheerline. Winning best in class for ‘Best Technical Innovation’ for a second time running at the Glass & Glazing fenestration awards 2022.

Why choose a roof Lantern

Selecting the right roof lantern for any property that lets the light in, is energy-efficient, secure and maintains a comfortable balance of heat in the room has traditionally been an issue with glass roofs. However, this innovative design from Sheerline has considered these at every turn during the design stages to develop a structural frame that is secure, thermally insulated and sealed. Ensuring no heat loss through the glass or frame.

The Sheerline roof lantern offers a strong aluminium structure with deep internal bars that can span up to 3.2 x 6m without tie bars. These slim 50mm rafter, hip, and ridge sightlines maximise the light in the room. The S1 lantern also features ultra-low line aesthetics so rafter and hip top caps sit close to the glazing level on the exterior, creating a sleek modern look.


The option to choose an alternative colour internally and externally from traditional colours to bespoke colours make it possible for any homeowner to add their own personal touch. All are available in Matt, Satin or Gloss finishes.
