Ikon Rooflights – a new brand from Sunsquare – has brought BSI-Kitemarked rooflights to the reseller market for the first time. With two flat-roof skylight designs, the new range is said to offer ‘verified quality’ and ‘unbeatable margins’, with prices starting from just £445.
Available exclusively for distributors, Sunsquare claims that the new Ikon rooflights boast unrivalled design, thermal performance and safety credentials, with competitive pricing that allows resellers to benefit from unmatched profit margins. They are also reported to be the only skylights for resellers that hold the BSI (British Standards Institution) Kitemark – a renowned mark of quality.
Mark Lambert, sales director at Ikon Rooflights, said: “For a long time, prohibitively high pricing has made Kitemarked rooflights completely inaccessible for the reseller market. This has left distributors having to compromise, unable to offer top-quality products at a margin that makes commercial sense. We’ve developed Ikon to change all this.
“Put simply, Ikon rooflights are the very best resellers can get, at a price that can’t be beaten. Both the new Ikon Air and Ikon Pureview are built to the highest quality, efficiency and security standards, each holding a BSI Kitemark – and all at an extremely affordable price point. For the first time, this gives builders’ merchants and other window and glazing distributors the opportunity to meet rising demand for quality, with a product that really competes on price.”
The launch brings to market two new product models. The Ikon Air is described as a stylish, electronically opening rooflight that provides fresh air ‘at the touch of a button’. The fixed Ikon Pureview offers a ‘clear sightline and frameless look’. According to Sunsquare they are quick and easy to install, and both models are available as stock in 11 sizes, with delivery within seven working days.
Mark continued: “Unlike most other brands, Ikon offers the electronically opening Air model as stock, providing resellers with an excellent upsell opportunity when selling standard fixed rooflights. The team behind Ikon has more than 15 years’ experience specialising in flat-roof skylights, so we know how important benefits like these are for distributors. Our pricing is another part of this, allowing resellers to secure the margins they need. What’s more, knowing all Ikon products are regularly, independently tested to destruction and backed by a 10-year warranty, they can have complete peace of mind too.”
Ikon rooflights feature laminated glass as standard and are also the only skylights that hold a BSI Kitemark for the whole product (not just the glass). Even electronic components are CE marked by the BSI. Fully thermally broken, Ikon rooflights have unparalleled U-values – incorporating polyamide thermal breaks to conductivity that provide an effective barrier between internal and external temperatures and guard against cold bridging and condensation.
