Understanding the Differences Between Non-fragile Rooflights and Walk-on Rooflights for Deliberate Foot Traffic
This technical document explains the differences between non-fragile rooflights and walk-on rooflights. It covers how to specify rooflights which will ensure compliant safety levels for individuals accessing roof areas, whether for occasional cleaning or maintenance, or in the case of walk-on rooflights, for regular and deliberate foot traffic. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the definitions of and differences between non-fragile rooflights and walk-on rooflights designed for deliberate foot traffic
- Understand where non-fragile rooflights should be installed
- Understand practical recommendations for specification for both types of rooflight to be safe and compliant
- Understand general guidance for safety on roofs

An Introduction to Natural Daylight Design in Domestic Properties
This technical document provides guidance on daylighting design with rooflights in domestic properties. It covers how to specify rooflights which will provide appropriate levels and quality of daylight and avoid common design pitfalls which may lead to inappropriate daylight levels, poor energy efficiency, glare, or overheating. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the health and well being benefits of daylight in homes
- Understand the benefits and effects of rooflights and roof windows and factors which can affect design and specification
- Understand the daylight factor and how it can be established using proprietary software
- Understand the effects of daylighting on energy efficiency
- Understand control of solar gain and glare and sun-screening
- Understand how light can affect your design and ways to match daylight quality and levels to room usage

Application of ACR[M]001 Test for Non-Fragility of Large Element Roofing Assemblies to GRP Profiled Rooflight Sheeting
The Health and Safety Executive clearly states that those persons responsible for the design of a roof structure should consider carefully the potential to eliminate or reduce the hazard of using materials which are of a fragile nature. Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) rooflights can safely be specified as non-fragile, providing that they have been manufactured to industry standards, fixed to manufacturers specifications and used in conjunction with structurally compatible roofing components. This document is designed to provide a straightforward guide for the designer to simplify the specification of GRP rooflights, to achieve non-fragility and retain it for 25 years. It will help you to understand the following topics:
- Understand the test procedures and classifications relating to GRP in-plane rooflights as part of complete roofing assemblies
- Understand the terminology pertaining to durability and non-fragility of GRP rooflights
- Understand the implications of weathering in relation to non-fragility of GRP rooflights
- Understand how to specify GRP rooflights to achieve non-fragility and retain it for 25 years
