Skylights. A product which sometimes doesn’t always get the amount of column inches it should, and a product which doesn’t always get the awareness it deserves. However, some of you may have seen a new product which seems to have slipped under the radar of most. Something called a Skypod:

John Fredericks, in partnership with Eurocell (makers of the Skypod) are introducing these into their product range. But what exactly is a Skypod?

Well, it’s the happy medium between the aluminium skylights that some don’t always like the architectural look of, and the PVC skylights which used the bulkier conservatory roof system that again some people didn’t always like.

So a Skypod is dedicated, sleeker alternative to traditional skylights, but it does also boast some impressive stats.

  • Exceptional energy efficiency with a U-value of 1.0 achievable, so you save money on your heating bills.
  • Outstanding quality, design engineering and technical innovation.
  • Fixed 20 degree pitch.
  • Glass as standard, in a choice of Blue, Natural, Bronze and Clear colours.
  • A wide range of sizes and colours so you can find the perfect skylight to suit your home.
  • A ten-year guarantee.

Being a bit more specific on the colour range:

What is a Skypod ideal for?

  • Flat-roof refurbishments
  • New flat-roof extensions
  • New build properties with flat roofs
  • Conversion projects e.g. garages

So, sleek design, low u-values, range of colours, and (should be) easy to install. It really does look to be a quality product which could rival some of the existing skylight solutions.

It’s easy to see why a company like John Fredericks would want to get involved with a product like this. They are already a Eurocell fabricator but something like the Skypod will fit into a product portfolio which is already full of high quality PVCu solutions.
