The Effectiveness of Self-Cleaning Glass in a Roof Lantern

14th March 2019

Self-cleaning glass – can there really be such a thing? Many of our customers are delighted to learn that we are now suppliers of Korniche roof lanterns, which are available with self-cleaning glass options. This makes an already low maintenance rooflight into an even greater convenience for you in your home, as the roof lantern will need very little cleaning or upkeep. You can keep on enjoying panoramic sky views from inside your home, without dirt and grime intruding on your outlook.

How effective is self-cleaning glass?
Self-cleaning glass has come a long way and is now a highly effective option for your home. It has certainly started to catch on popularity wise, and it’s easy to see why – rooflights aren’t the easiest household items to clean. Yet self-cleaning glass is still generally only offered on the most high-end products. So is it worth it?

These are some of the benefits you can enjoy:

• Reduced maintenance for rooflights

• Cleaning reduced to as little as once a year

• Less dirt, more natural light

Self-cleaning glass has a specialist coating, which uses daylight to break down dirt. When it rains, the dirt is easily washed away, saving you having to clean the glass on a regular basis. You might also notice that raindrops look different on your rooflights, being deflected away from the glass. This saves rooflights from water droplets forming, which can leave glass stained and murky when the water has dried.
