Innovation helps Sunsquare to remain market leaders

Latest News Thu, Feb 1, 2018 10:07 AM

Sunsquare have been market leaders in the rooflight industry for many years now. It’s history is almost exclusively based around innovation. For 14 years the company have been leading the way in the industry by not only designing and manufacturing the best products in the industry, but changing the face of the industry too.

Sunsquare were the first company to use heat soaked glass as standard in their products to avoid inclusions in the glass. Sunsquare were the first, and only company to gain a Kitemark for their product range in an otherwise unregulated industry. Sunsquare were the first to supply Up-stands with their products to make installation easy and recently, the first company to offer laminated inner panes as standard on their range. All that is done is not only to improve the product range, but improve safety, integrity and the client experience.


More recently the company have been concentrating on improving the electronic element of their award-winning skylights. One of the issues with wiring has been that a qualified electrician is required to wire the skylight in and, even with instructions, occasionally this can go wrong if the incorrect voltage is applied and can be costly. Sunsquare have designed a new “plug and play” system which not only negated the need for an electrician, but ensures that everything works perfectly straight out of the box.

It also means that the addition of rain sensors, remote controls and any other accessory is fool-proof too. Most impressive is that the whole thing just plugs into the mains like any other household appliance. We’ve even printed a template for drilling on the instructions to make it even more simple…


There are times in an industry when the game is changed, and this is one of those moments.

Even though it looks like a simple piece of equipment, the 2 years of testing with the BSI to gain the CE marking means that this now changes the customer experience when buying a skylight. The rest of the industry will have to play catch up again.


“The more we can do to assist the client at our end, the smoother the whole experience will be. We are often asked what makes our skylights different to the competition, and the answer gets simpler. We have always started with client needs and worked backwards. I think that is what has made us the most accredited and award-winning company in our industry. We have always just wanted to be the very best.” Said Justin Seldis, Managing Director.

The new plug and play electronic package is available on all Aero Vent model skylights form Sunsquare. For further information please call us on 0845 2263172 or www.sunsquare.co.uk.
