Brett Martin Brings Light to Door Company's New Production Facility

The UK’s leading supplier of rooflight systems Brett Martin Daylight Systems (BMDS) has provided its Energysaver factory-assembled GRP rooflights for a new purpose-built production facility in Bedfordshire, creating a light, energy efficient environment which enhances the workplace for employees.

Designed by architects Woods Hardwick, the new Jewers Doors facility comprises 45,700 sq ft of factory and 12,000 sq ft of office space. Built by Parkway Construction, the new highly insulated building features energy efficient heating and cooling systems. Its composite panel roof incorporates a rooflight system from Brett Martin that maximises daylight and thermal performance, as well as offering the most cost-effective solution.

The specification for the 80mm-thick composite panel roof included 650m2 of Brett Martin GRP Trilite 3.0 Energysaver rooflights to provide an even spread of diffused daylight into the building. Offering quality and robustness, these triple-skin factory-assembled insulating rooflights (FAIRs) are designed to the same depth as the composite roofing system so that the flat liner panel sits flush with surrounding metal panels for excellent aesthetics and a neater, trim internal appearance.

Commenting on the project, Jonathan Jewers, Director at Jewers Doors said: “As a long-standing customer of Brett Martin, we are pleased that the Brett Martin Energysaver FAIRS were specified on our new premises. The technical expertise, product quality and customer service from Brett Martin made the process of supply and installation as seamless as possible and we are very pleased with the final result of our new building.”

Brett Martin not only designs a wide range of rooflight systems to deliver optimum performance, durability, safety and regulation standards – it offers superior technical support, detailed installation instructions and maintenance guidelines to ensure systems perform as promised, and work alongside all other roofing elements.

With this new facility for the family-owned door company now in operation, Brett Martin’s ready-to-fit daylighting solution has played a significant part in ensuring this manufacturing facility meets its energy efficiency targets, whilst providing the best quality, diffused natural daylight for the employees.
