Our new Glass Product Range is designed and manufactured to focus on slim, elegant profile detailing allowing maximum daylight. Many of the products are available in modular sizes and are supplied to site pre- fabricated allowing ease of specification, purchase and installation.
The aluminium profiles are supplied powder coated providing minimal maintenance and on-going costs to site. Other RAL finishes are available on request.

The Coxdome Sunpipe allows the transfer of daylight into small rooms, tight spaces, or any space that does not currently have the benefit of daylight. Sunpipes transport light in both vertical and horizontal directions with minimum heat transfer, and can be specified to pass through several floors of a building.
In the event of fire, the greatest immediate danger to occupants of a building, comes from smoke, not heat. Coxdome SHEV systems provide smoke and heat exhaust ventilation for all commercial and residential applications. SHEV systems not only help to provide smoke extraction in the event of a fire, they also provide day-to-day controllable ventilation. Systems are linked to a central control panel with battery back-up in case of main electricity failure. Available in clear or obscure polycarbonate glazing to enhance natural daylight, or with a fully insulated solid aluminum cover.
A full range of accessories is available to further enhance the performance of Coxdome SHEV systems, depending on the application. Ranging from weather sensors and wind deflectors, to emergency push buttons and safety fall grids, the accessories are designed to provide a complete safety package that can be tailored to the specific requirements of each project.

Coxdome Launches New AOV For Both Smoke Ventilation and Access

The new AOV is uniquely designed to offer both a centrally positioned or off-set motor to cover both aspects of ventilation and access, giving building users peace of mind. Furthermore, it has been fully tested to and certified to EN12101 – 2:2003 as a legal requirement under the Construction Products Regulation 2013.
“This addition to our rooflight range gives installers and building specifiers greater flexibility to ensure practical needs are met alongside essential safety requirements,” said Jim Lowther Sales Director Coxdome. “By moving the motor to the side building occupants can now be provided with a safe escape route whilst providing day-to-day controllable ventilation.”
Designed to allow safe and easy access to a roof space, the enhanced specification rooflight now combines the practicality of necessary access to a roof for inspection, maintenance or escape, with the need for smoke extraction and controllable ventilation. The AOV rooflight is suitable for use on flat roofs and is linked to a central control panel with battery back-up in case of main electricity failure. It is available in a variety of sizes and in clear or obscure polycarbonate glazing to enhance natural daylight, or with a fully insulated solid aluminium cover.
“Our AOV fulfils a market niche in that it combines the aesthetics and practicalities of a rooflight and the essential safety of smoke ventilation,” said Jim “Increased flexibility is now given to specifiers to embrace the credentials of this unique product which supports essential requirements in both domestic and commercial applications keeping buildings and people safe.”
The AOV currently conforms with Part L of the Building Regulations and Part B which pertains to fire safety. Furthermore, it gives added value future proofing buildings as it also meets the proposed changes to the regulations.
