Attic Ladders, a division of The Attic Group of Australia , has recently introduced an innovative new design to its stable of quality Velux and Estfeller skylights and windows.
These windows are used by The Attic Group’s building arm, Roof Space Converters, when converting previously wasted space above your head into anything from a dust-proof room for storage to a playroom, Dad’s den or additional bedroom(s).
Attic Ladder’s latest recruit to the skylight and window ranks is the Velux GHL roof window, a top-hung window specially designed for low pitched roofs from 15-55 degrees. Opening outwards by means of a handle placed at the bottom of the sash, the window creates a feeling of space and provides an unobstructed view.
The Velux GHL is operated by means of a handle located at the bottom of the sash, though the control bar at the top of the window can be pulled forward to open the ventilation flap and also turn the window 180 degrees.
“This ensures maximum ventilation by moving the window to catch the prevailing breeze and also gives easy access for cleaning the outside of the window,” said Roof Space Converters project manager, Warwick Wright.
The GHL consists of two panes of tempered safety glass, dual-sealed and injected with argon gas and is designed to protect the interior for heat, noise and UV rays. Such is its design, the GHL has earned a five-star energy rating.
So if you are thinking about utilising that wasted space in the roof cavity, The Attic Group incorporating Attic Ladders and Roof Space Converters is your one-stop shop for everything from advice to an attic ladder to access the area or a full roof space conversion.
