NARM relaunched as the Rooflight Association

Rooflight association

The National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers (NARM) has been relaunched as the Rooflight Association. The association continues to be a member of the Construction Products Association.

Previously, under the NARM banner, the association’s membership was focussed on manufacturing businesses. As the Rooflight Association, membership is now also open to rooflight installers, specifiers, distributors and other businesses that are involved in the rooflight industry.

“Our mission is to support best practice and to ensure growth and sustainability in all sectors of our industry,” explained Ian Weakford, chair of the Rooflight Association. “To continue fulfilling this role in today’s landscape – and to truly be the voice of the UK’s rooflight industry, as we claim – we need to embrace all aspects of roof lighting, from design and specification, through to installation and beyond.”

Leaders of the Rooflight Association aim to expand on the organisation’s previous work while shaping standards and legislation, supporting safe roof working practices and providing authoritative, independent technical information for designers and specifiers.

New membership categories
The association has restructured to offer four membership categories:
• Manufacturer membership, which is open to UK rooflight manufacturers and wholly owned subsidiaries,
• Associate membership, which is open to specialist distributors, architectural/survey/inspection practices, and rooflight component or ancillary manufacturers,
• Installer membership, which is open to roofing and building contractors and glazing installation businesses, and
• Individual personal membership, which is open to specifiers, installers, inspectors and consultants.

Each category has been assigned a package of benefits which are being promoted as ‘Tools to Build a Brighter Future’.

These include: representation on influential industry committees and working groups, early access to legislative change documents, marketing, learning opportunities and networking events.

Increased resources
“We’re looking forward to welcoming new members to share our mission and values in building a brighter future for the whole industry. Increased membership will allow us to expand our resources to meet the continual challenges of a rapidly evolving industry that’s subject to frequent and wide-ranging legislative changes,” Ian added.

He continued: “We have already invested in researching and developing member benefits relevant to the different membership categories, as well as a new website, updated documentation and a new brand identity that will carry us forward in the coming years.”
