Dakea has launched its Ultima roof window, featuring a sound reduction system and comfort glass, as well as a 20-year guarantee.
Incorporating two methods of noise reduction technology - airborne sound insulation and impact sound insulation - the combination of a toughened 6mm thick external pane, two layers of sound absorbing foil and cladding with noise absorbing tape reduces the volume of both external noise and impact sound by half, Dakea claims.
The glazing construction, which shields against ultraviolet (UV) light, reflects 95% of harmful UV rays, Dakea claims. With U-values as low as 1.2, the company says that its roof window keeps properties cool during the summer and warm during winter, reducing household energy bills.
Self-cleaning, a titan dioxide coating on the windowpane breaks down organic materials allowing it to be washed away by rainfall - ensuring easy maintenance for home owners, Dakea explains. Alongside the window’s 20-year guarantee, there is a lifetime warranty against hail damage.www.dakea.co.uk
