As the voice of the UK's rooflight industry, we publish guidance on the latest building regulations so you can keep up to date for continued compliance.
It is no secret that in the last 2 years, the UK building industry has undergone an overhaul of regulation changes; heavily motivated by the government’s carbon reduction targets. With major changes in Part L in each of the UK nations, roof component manufacturers have been striving to meet lower u-values and other tighter thresholds for the conservation of fuel & power.
Unsurprisingly, this has created a ripple effect through the supply chain as specifiers and contractors must ensure the compliance of each component, including rooflights and roof windows and the roof structure as a whole.
It may seem daunting but at the Rooflight Association, we see these changes as a greater long-term positive for the building industry…
As a result, we have curated a series of Quickguides, designed to provide specifiers and other daylighting professionals with a rundown of the most important facts. With our most recent guide on Approved Document L 2022 for Wales, Volume 2: Buildings other than Dwellings, which came into force earlier this year.
