Case studies


North East based roofing company Roof Trust has opted for the Dakea Ultima roof windows to ensure high-quality installations on a number of residential refurbishment properties. Easy to install, ULTIMA windows provide a range of benefits for the homeowner, including reducing external noise by as much as 50% when compared to other standard windows on the market.


selected Dakea products - including the innovative Ultima - for three separate refurbishment installs within the Newcastle area after discussing its requirements with local supplier Rinus Roofing Supplies in Sunderland. David Bruce, managing director of Roof Trust said: "When looking at the options on the market we were keen to find a manufacturer whose products would meet the homeowner requirements as well as provide a simple installation."
Dakea ULTIMA has a range of benefits for the homeowner. The Comfort Glass technology features two double-action layers designed to protect properties from solar gain during the summer and retain warmth in winter - reducing household energy bills throughout the year.

Housebuilders makes the smarter choice

Also featuring Titan Glass, Ultima delivers exceptional energy efficiency with heat loss performance of just 1.2 W/m2 K. In addition, the insulated glazing unit is filled with krypton which conducts 46% less heat than the more commonly used argon. ULTIMA also shields impressively against the effects of ultraviolet (UV) light by blocking up to 95% of harmful UV rays. David continued: "Dakea ULTIMA also helped us to resolve some key installation challenges. A common issue on-site is not having the correct fixings and components available and this slows the installation process. With Ultima the correct screws are always provided within its window installation set. It sounds simple but not all manufacturers provide them and this, together with the easy to use tile flashing, makes a huge difference to overall ease and quality of the installation."
The low maintenance ULTIMA is supplied with a the market-leading 20-year warranty and is supported by Dakea’s 75 years’ experience in roof window design, manufacturing and innovation.

David concluded: "We always recommend Dakea windows to our customers as they’re so versatile, in addition to generating impressive cost savings. We consider Dakea windows our number one choice as they provide a great aesthetic for our homeowner clients and fit brilliantly within any frame during install, which underlines their flexibility. The handles featured at the bottom of the Dakea ULTIMA window also allows users to reach and open them far easier, overcoming accessibility challenges for customers.
With further installations of Dakea windows planned for the future by Roof Trust, David, and the company remain committed to utilizing the exceptional benefits from Dakea to provide a future-proof solution.
