Successful Suffolk-based rooflight company Sunsquare, which was named Business of the Year at this year’s EADT Business Awards, is adding to the standard specification of its products to help protect against harmful UV rays from the sun.

Bury St Edmunds-based Sunsquare, is introducing a laminated inner pane, consisting of two different panes of glass permanently bonded using heat and pressure.

The lamination will also include a plastic interlayer of polyvinyl butyral (PVB), a perfectly clear material that’s renowned for its toughness.

Mark Lambert, sales director at Sunsquare, said: “With the introduction of a laminated inner pane as standard on all our rooflights, Sunsquare are leading the way providing a safer and more secure rooflight with the added benefit of filtering out 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays.

“This is building on our industry-leading BSI Kitemark commitment to quality and safety.

“Most importantly, customers can enjoy these benefits without having to worry about their view being interrupted: laminated inner panes are an unnoticeable enhancement.”

Sunsquare which was founded in 2004, offers more than 160 different skylight combinations suitable for most types of property, from modern to period/
