We recently replaced the cupola (or lantern) that adorns the roof of a North Yorkshire property.
The attractive rectangular structure was manufactured in Accoya® timber and spray painted at our own in-house facility. We fitted the most appropriate double-glazed units to maximise thermal efficiency and added quality fixtures and fittings. The result, as you can see, is something of which we are justifiably proud.
A cupola is usually an attractive addition to the roof and skyline of any building, but they also have a functional purpose. Cupolas are designed to let in natural light to otherwise dark areas and to improve ventilation.
We care about the environment, and that is one of the reasons we use Accoya® when manufacturing our products. ‘Accoya is a modified timber which has been through a process called acetylation, a cutting-edge patented technology that enables it to resist rot, defy the elements, and stay strong for decades. Guaranteed for 50 years above ground and 25 years when in the ground or freshwater, its performance and properties are remarkable’. See our video to learn more about Accoya® understand why our timber frames can be carbon negative over their full life cycle.
