Our mission is to support best practice and to ensure growth and sustainability in all sectors of our industry.
- The association was originally formed in 1998.
- Our board of directors contributes to the Association on a voluntary basis. They are appointed by voting from within the membership.
- We have representation on both British and European Standards Committees and as such we play a leading role in the drafting and revision of product standards.
- Our Technical Committee has been instrumental in collecting, analysing and interpreting rooflighting data upon which the regulations pertaining to rooflighting in The Building Regulations Approved Document L (Conservation of fuel & power), have been based.
- Our collaboration with the ACR (Advisory Committee for Roofsafety) has played an important role in defining non-fragility of rooflights, making roofs a much safer place to work in recent years.
- We campaign to support the requirement for laminated inner panes on glass rooflights for safety reasons, bringing pressure on the British Standards Institute for a regulatory amendment.
- As a member organisation of CPA (Construction Products Association) and Eurolux, the European trade association for rooflight manufacturers, we are able to share our knowledge and resources across the wider construction industry.
- We commission independent research through academic bodies, to enable greater understanding of the role that daylight can play in improving building performance.
- We publish freely available Technical Documents and Guides covering all aspects of rooflighting.
- We provide support to member companies and other trade associations, in respect of technical, legislative and roof safety issues.
Who is behind the Rooflight Association?
The Rooflight Association runs for its members and the advocacy of daylight in the built environment. In order to achieve this, we have a board of experts that regularly meet together and collaborate with members.
