Frame Fast UK’s Skypod® is an innovative PVC-U pitched skylight that has been created for today’s style-conscious homeowner. Nigel Leivers, Frame Fast’s Sales Director, says, “Pitched skylights are traditionally made of aluminium, which presents three difficulties for homeowners. The first is quite simply the cost. The second two are aesthetic: not everyone appreciates the industrial design and having an aluminium skylight destroys a design-led finish when the doors and windows are PVC-U. The Skypod® solves all these problems and allows homeowners to create a stunning designer finish at a realistic price.”
The Skypod® is perfect for spaces such as flat-roofed extensions, orangeries, new builds, kitchen-diners and garage conversions, where the expanse of glass floods the space with natural light and creates an inspiring and aspirational look. It is available in a two-bar pitched gable design, which is suitable for openings of up to 1.5m x 6.5m, and a three-bar pitched gable design which is suitable for openings up to 2.75m x 7.75m, making it perfect for everything from bijou suburban house extensions to dramatic designer new-builds.
The interior frame colour is White as standard, to maximise the feel of an airy living environment. External frame colours are White, Rosewood, Golden Oak, Anthracite Grey and Moondust, while glass colours are blue, neutral, bronze and clear.
While the stunning looks will clearly be the main draw for most homeowners, it is important to note that the thermal efficiency hasn’t been forgotten. The Skypod® can achieve a U-value of just 1.0. It also comes with a ten year product guarantee for complete peace of mind.
The Skypod®, which is part of the Eurocell product portfolio, will be manufactured in Frame Fast’s technically advanced 30,000 sq ft, purpose-designed production facility in Derby, giving customers peace of mind that it will be meet the exceptional standards for which the company is renowned.
Nigel concludes, “We are very excited about adding the Skypod® to our range. It’s an exciting, value-added product that will allow our customers to differentiate themselves from their competitors as well as open up new opportunities for sales.”
