We’re proud to announce that Keylite has been shortlisted for not one, but two BuildIt awards – ‘Best Roofing System or Product’ and ‘Innovation In Insulation’ – thanks to our Integrated Expanding Thermal Collar! This impressive feature is unique to Keylite roof windows and comes at no extra cost – making it a customer favourite.
Working as an Architectural Technician at 2020architects, Gareth Boyd had spent many years helping people to design and build their ideal home, and so in October 2017, decided it was time to put his own plans into action. At the end of 2017 Gareth and his family begun their self-build journey in Co Antrim, Northern Ireland.
Due to his work at the Architect firm, Gareth was well acquainted with roof windows specialists Keylite. “We chose to incorporate Keylite’s roof windows as I’ve worked with them many times before on projects in my day job. I knew without a doubt we would be getting quality products with minimal hassle.
“From an efficiency point of view, we put a lot of emphasis on a fabric-first approach to design throughout the home. This involved maximising the thermal efficiency of the envelope of the building, investing in generous amounts of insulation, good quality windows and airtightness. If these areas are specified and installed properly, the amount of energy required to heat the home is greatly reduced. With this in mind, Keylite Roof Windows’ Integrated Expanding Thermal Collar is fantastic for minimising any heat escaping around the window, making the overall roof window far more thermally efficient.”
