First Pitch Of Smart Pitched Rooflight

A rooflight

Grand Designs saw Sunsquare launch Aero Pitch which it claims is the world’s most advanced and thermally efficient smart app controlled skylight for 20-60° tiled roofs.

Aero Pitch is fully automated, is condensation free and holds a BSI Kitemark for its safety and quality.


Easy fit

According to Sunsqauare It is easy to install with one universal flashing kit to fit any roof.

The product made its first appearance at Grand Designs Live at ExCeL London in May. 


 “We’ve been flat-roof skylight specialists for 18 years and this is our very first model specifically designed for 20-60° roofs.”

– Justin Seldis 

Managing director, Sunsquare.


Everything for the job


“Using our design experience, we wanted to address all the common issues people face with pitched roof skylights, such as thermal performance, condensation, safety and usability, and we’ve ended up with the most advanced skylight out there,” continues Sunquare’s Seldis.  “But that wasn’t our only focus, we wanted to make it as straight forward as possible for installers too. That’s why we developed a universal flashing kit that will suit any tiled roof, from 20-60°. Our kit has everything you’ll ever need with no hidden extras needed, even for bespoke sizes. In fact, the skylight, flashing kit and upstand all come as part of the package, so installers always have everything they need to get the job done easily.”



Smart operation

Aero Pitch also comes with Smartsquare, a smart switch as standard. This allows users to open or close the skylight wherever they are at the touch of a smart phone button or through smart speakers. They can even programme it to automatically open and close based on weather conditions, humidity, inside temperature, sunrise or sunset, or even their proximity to the building. 



Safety is another key feature. Aero Pitch uses shatter-proof laminated glass and is top hinged for extra security. It is also the first pitched roof skylight to hold a BSI Kitemark. This means it has been independently tested to destruction to ensure durability and endurance.  


Thermal performance

As with all Sunsquare’s skylights, Aero Pitch offers good thermal performance and is completely thermally broken, providing an effective barrier between internal and external temperatures. It offers U-values as low as 0.5 W/m2K. 



“Aero Pitch is sleek and stylish and can be tailor-made to suit any design,” adds Seldis. “It comes in fixed and bespoke sizes, double and triple glazing, it’s compatible with any blind system and its aluminium frame can be powder-coated in any RAL colour to match any decor. It’s even available in a conservation format to complement more traditional architecture.”



Any order is backed by a ten-year insurance warranty, including a two-year guarantee on any necessary electronics.
