Walk on glass skylights not only look stunning and add value to your home, they deliver heaps of fresh daylight to the room below as well as supreme sky views. If you have a balcony or a roof terrace, a walk on glass rooflight can be a great option. The glass used is extremely thick and strong, so it can withstand busy foot traffic so it’s a stylish addition that will surely impress and friends and relatives when you’re entertaining. If you’re worried about privacy, you can have the skylights with a darker glazing finish, ensuring people on the balcony can’t see through to the room below.

Most walk on glass skylights can be seamlessly fitted with paving slabs or decking, sitting flush so there is no visible framework whatsoever. This is perfect if you’re looking for a modern yet minimalistic style, and there is a huge range of designs to choose from. These systems are also very easy to clean and maintain, and like any other form of flooring, regular sweeping can do the job. You should always buy systems that approved by the UK government and in line with building regulations, however, it’s important to do your research first, because prices can vary depending on the design, system and manufacturer you choose.

This stylish lighting solution has become extremely popular in the UK and it’s a great way to delivery more daylight to dim rooms, helping you save on your electricity bills. If you are looking to get light into a room that is situated below a balcony or terrace, then you should definitely consider investing in a walk on glass rooflight. You only need to do a quick search online to find some of the leading suppliers and manufacturers, whilst your architect or developer may also be able to provide recommendations.
