Impressive features

Trade fabricator, Modplan, has announced it has added the Wendland lantern roof to its
product portfolio.

Justin Williams, international sales and marketing director for Modplan, commented: “Today’s homeowners are looking to create light-filled rooms that add extra year-round space and that’s exactly what the Wendland lantern roof delivers. The addition extends our conservatory and roofing solutions range and means installers have access to a full portfolio of options for their customers.”

The Wendland lantern roof is said to deliver ‘superb’ contemporary looks, high performance and great design. It’s a PVC-U product with an engineered lightweight, aluminium two part low profile ridge body and is available in white and grey external finishes.

It has been designed to only require hip bars on lanterns over 3 x 1.5m, meaning more light on smaller sizes. It is also available in sizes up to 6 x 4.5m, to cater for larger roof solutions.

According to Modplan, the lantern roof is packed with intelligent features that add value to homeowners and installers alike. It says that homeowners will appreciate the better thermal performance created by using the existing Mk5 Wendland glazing bar chambered top caps and an aluminium ridge top cap with a thermal break clip – and that installers will appreciate the two part ridge and detachable ridge top cap that make it easy to insert the glazing into the structure.
