As early as 2019, LAMILUX developed a glass roof that could withstand fire and heat for up to 30 minutes – certified according to German and European standards. Now the skylight and fire protection specialist has succeeded in extending this protection for people, property and buildings.
Especially in big cities, where the number of floors in housing is sometimes limited and private gardens are rare, roof terraces are very popular. For this reason, LAMILUX has now developed a fourth flat roof exit in its Comfort series.
At digitalBAU 2020, LAMILUX introduced the pilot, and now the in-house product configurator is ready. Architects, planners or roofers can now use this service tool to configure daylight systems themselves – and download variant-specific data sheets, drawings, CAD data and BIM models.
Silver for LAMILUX – was awarded at this year's Architects' Darling ceremony. In the category "Best BIM Data Offer", the Rehau-based family-owned company won silver for its innovative and digital solution for the construction industry.
With its 3° inclination and outstanding design, the LAMILUX Glass Skylight FE 3° received the next award: The German Design Award in the category "Excellent Product Design". The skylight was awarded the Special Mention here.
The LAMILUX Glass Skylight F100 Circular has always been ventilated, but now concealed drives can also be integrated. In addition, a new type of upstand makes it possible to incline the element by three degrees. This has visual and functional advantages.
An inclined upstand for round Glass Skylights has not been available as a standard solution - until now. With the top surface of a slanting cylinder being the shape of an ellipse, instead of a perfect circle, the laws of geometry needed to be bypassed. LAMILUX has found a solution to this problem and can now reveal a new type of upstand available for round Glass Skylights.
With its 3° inclination and the Structural Glazing Construction, the new LAMILUX Glass Skylight FE provides for an even drainage. The result: A clear view into the sky and maximum incidence of daylight at all times.
What for some is the garden, for others is their roof terrace - at best with a direct and comfortable access. LAMILUX now has a new third flat roof exit in its repertoire, which is even more luxurious and space-saving.
The three daylight systems could hardly be more different, yet all three have won the German Design Award in the "Building and Elements" category: The Glass Skylight F100 Circular with concealed chain propulsion drive and Ventilation Flap PR60 for glass roofs received the “Winner” award, while the Flat Roof Exit Comfort Swing for roof terraces was given a “Special Mention”.
