RAISED STRUCTURE WITH ELEVATIONS:
A Raised Access Enclosure, enables the total product to operate within a fixed perimeter.
DESIGN ADVICE:

There are various different design options, the selection of which can depend on matters such as:

• Position, approach aspect and user requirements.

• Specific planning constraints on what height can be used in each application.

• Available roof area adjacent to the apeture.

• Aesthetics.

• Costs
Sliding Glazed Rooflight:
In some applications, the vertical glazed sides may not be required or needed, but there must be room for the structure to travel away from the apeture and across adjacent roof space.
Hinged (Lifting) Rooflight:
In certain situations a hinged (Lift Top) structure which does not require vertical sides is suitable. Where appropriate, when open, the lid can also act as a protective balustrade for the stairway.
Opening Methods:
Clients usually prefer motorised operation, but a hand operated option is usually available. Apart from certian circumstances, power systems are 24volt operation for safety reasons. Options range from a single switch, through to fully automatic, including facilities such as, proximity sensor, rain sensor, remote control and security coded external keypads.
