Titan roof lanterns explained

Posted on 11.05.2023

Titan roof lanterns make a great addition to your property. They are perfect for brightening up a room and transforming living spaces. They are a great choice for any new or existing conservatory, orangery, or extension. Roof lanterns are a great way to introduce more natural light into your home without impeding on your space.

What are Titan roof lanterns?

A roof lantern is made up of glazed panels installed onto a roof in a pitched roof effect. This shape adds height to the room, giving the illusion of extra space. As the lantern peaks above the roof, it allows for more daylight to enter the room.

Why choose Bowalker?

At Bowalker Doors, our Titan roof lanterns are available in a range of designs and styles, so there’s sure to be something for you! We have a choice of 10 styles, including square ‘pyramid’ designs to grander options for larger installations, with a size range of 2.4m up to 6m long, which allows you to have flexibility when improving your home.

You can match your roof lantern to your current windows and doors for a seamless finish. For a sleek internal look, we offer a white finish as standard to emphasise the full effect of a Titan.

Choose from a selection of architectural colours to create your bespoke Titan roof lantern. They can be designed to perfectly complement the rest of your home, with standard colours such as pure white, anthracite grey, and jet black. We also offer bespoke colours including pastel turquoise, chocolate brown, and agate grey, amongst others. These lanterns are available with an LED light channel around the perimeter of the roof, giving you the option to add mood lighting for a bespoke look.

Energy efficiency

Bowalker Titan roof lanterns have slim sightlines, so your view and the design of the lantern is not spoiled by chunky frames. These clean sightlines allow more daylight to flood into your home all year round. Our roof lanterns are highly thermally efficient. As well as having great insulating properties, the sun’s natural warmth can heat up the room.

The extra light entering the room will provide more heat, which can contribute to lowering your energy bills. As the natural light from your Titan enters your home from the ceiling, your living space is illuminated for longer, meaning you won’t need to use your lights as much during the day. Our Titan roof lanterns are an ideal choice for a thermally efficient home improvement project.

Ventilation options

Ventilation keeps the air in your home fresh and healthy. It is important to have ventilation options in your Titan roof lantern, especially if your lantern is situated in the kitchen or southern facing part of your home. These areas can become warm quickly, so it’s valuable to regulate the temperature to avoid condensation and stuffy rooms.

At Bowalker, we offer a few options for ventilation within our Titan roof lanterns. Having one or two panels that open is a great way to increase the air flow. If you don’t want windows, trickle vents are the perfect option for improving ventilation.
