Burberry Harris Moon can supply an orangery roof lantern for your orangery design project, where you may have appointed your own builder and be overseeing the project yourself.

Design considerations for an orangery roof lantern

  • The orangery must have large enough flat roof perimeters to allow for fitting downlighters.
  • The overall height of a roof lantern may need to be dictated by a first floor bedroom window.  Ideally the ridge height of the lantern would need to be below the cill level height of the upstairs window, and therefore a lantern pitch of twenty degrees would keep the lantern height to a minimum.
  • Generally, in a lantern for a new orangery extension it would make good sense to have a roof vent that is controlled electrically via a wall mounted, retracted rocker switch.  This would make the opening and closing of the roof vent convenient and easy to do.
  • It is good practice to position the lantern in an orangery symmetrically as viewed from outside.  Usually this means that the midpoint of the lantern will line up with the set of French doors on the orangery.  There should be no concern if the width of the flat roof perimeter is not the same on all four sides as this is not something that is really noticed.
