Korniche Roof Lantern

Faster, slimmer, stronger, warmer.

The Korniche Roof Lantern offers an exceptional product at a great price with easy-fit technology reducing time on site.

The Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern, engineered and developed by Made for Trade specifically with the trade and installer at the heart of the process, providing a product that is not only easy to install but arrives as a kit with full instructions and components safely wrapped and boxed. With no cutting or silicone required within the roof structure, the Korniche is the go-to Lantern for the installer.

Korniche Roof Lantern Key Features

Faster

The Korniche roof lantern’s simple design means it is capable of being fitted in minutes and glazed in seconds. It is the fastest and easiest kit to install on the market.

Slimmer

With no visible fixings and seamless joints throughout, your roof lantern doesn’t just change the way your living space looks. It changes how it feels.

Stronger

Meticulously engineered to be the strongest and stiffest on the market, our roof lantern supports industry-leading maximum glass sizes without the need for additional rafters.

Warmer

The roof lantern is fully thermally broken. Outside aluminium elements are connected to the internal ones through thermal breaks, vastly reducing heat transfer.

Benefits For Trades

Fast and Simple Installation

Reduce installation time, spend less time on-site and take on more projects.

Effortless Assembly

No cutting or silicon required within the roof structure. Easy-technology ensures a smooth, stress free install.

Peace of Mind

With industry leading manufacturing processes, short lead times & multiple RAL colour options we ensure you’ll have everything you need for a successful project.

Happy Customers

Deliver stunning results every time with our slim design, superior thermal performance and self cleaning glass.

Why Korniche? – Designed Brighter, Engineered Better

Strongest on the market

Meticulously engineered to be the strongest and stiffest on the market, our roof lantern supports industry-leading maximum glass sizes without the need for additional rafters.

Die-cast aluminium components

Because we use aluminium, our die cast components are made with greater accuracy and tighter tolerances that deliver superb weather resistance and thermal retention, low maintenance and breath-taking aesthetics.

Beautiful from every angle

Where the spas end, they are fitted with an aluminium die-cast end cap, sculpted to fit perfectly with no visible fixings to maintain the beautiful aesthetics in every detail.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ‘self clean’ glass?
Self cleaning glass combines both self cleaning and solar control properties, making them highly desirable amongst homeowners looking for the ultimate in glass solutions. The coating that is applied to the glass breaks down organic dirt and by doing so reduces the adhesion of inorganic dirt. Water droplets are spread out to form a sheet and this picks up the loosened dirt particles as it drains off the surface. The result is remarkable and a difference you can actually see.
What does U Value mean?
Thermal transmittance, also known as U-value, is the rate of transfer of heat through the glass. It is measured as watts per square meter Kelvin or W/m²K. The better the insulation, the lower the U-value is.
Why does aluminium need to be thermally broken?
Aluminium like all metals is a conductor of heat. If our profiles weren’t thermally broken the inside heat would be wicked away and lost to the colder outside. By creating a profile assembled with polyamide sections between the inside and outside portions, the ‘thermal bridge’ is stopped. Polyamide is a glass filled plastic meaning it is an insulator and therefore there is virtually no conduction of heat through it.
What are the benefits of powder coat verses wet paint?
Powder coating provides better performance than wet paint—it is more resistant to chipping, scratching, and other wear because of the thermal bonding it undergoes during curing, and because it can be applied in much thicker layers. This performance is especially important for outdoor products, like aluminium glazed products.

In addition to its physical toughness, powder coating provides superior colour retention. Long term exposure to moisture, sunlight, and heat breaks down the resins found in both paint and powder coating. This process, known as chalking, causes resin and pigment particles to lose adhesion. Affected particles form a chalk-like layer on the coating surface.

The early stages of chalking merely give the coating a faded appearance, but severe chalking will eventually erode the coating enough to compromise surface protection. The rate of chalking depends on the resiliency of the resin. Polyester based powder coatings are frequently used as topcoats due to their exceptional chalk resistance.

“I made a technical enquiry about a roof light and had a response within minutes that perfectly dealt with the issue at hand. Great, friendly service. MFT are obviously a very well managed business who employ the right people.”
