Aluminum Glass Roof

The ‘grand design’ trend of home extensions is becoming increasingly popular in the Emirates. To complement interior aesthetics, aluminum glass roofs are gaining immense popularity in cities like Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Cayman, and Sharjah. As there is less structure on the roof elevations, it is vital to determine the appropriate structural support for the building to withstand vertical and lateral forces. 
Your home’s vaulted aluminum glass ceiling creates a wonderful sense of comfort. Dramatic architecture meets common sense energy efficiency that you’ll love for decades. Aluminum is a very strong metal that lasts longer than wood or PVC and can withstand various weather conditions.
DEFRA incorporates cutting-edge design techniques from the popular aluminum glass roof system and offers slim, modern profiles to provide a strong yet lightweight system that can be configured to almost any roof design. We offer the broadest range of glass roofs to order, from high to triangular roofs with unobstructed partitions up to 6 meters. Our experts will work with you to determine the right solution for your home.

Why Aluminum framed Glass Roofs?
Owing to their strength and durability, Aluminum framed glass roofs are trending throughout the Emirates. Although roofs can be made from various materials, glass roofs with an aluminum frame have become the standard for balconies of residential buildings in Dubai. Glass has excellent load-bearing and acoustic properties. Compared to polycarbonate roofs, glass roofs can significantly reduce external noise, such as rain, low-flying aircraft, and heat resistance.
A glass roof also allows you to take advantage of innovations such as solar control and ease-to-cleaning.
DEFRA SHADES offers a wide range of aluminum roofing products that complement our framed glass product’s elegant beauty. Aluminum offers many cost advantages over traditional timber framing and has physical properties that can provide unique benefits depending on the application. As with our other specialty glass products, every aluminum structure we finish is equipped with high-performance insulating Glass from the best German manufacturers.

They Look Amazing
Glass in any form can always bring an elegant and modern aesthetic to the home. Even a less exciting home can be significantly boosted when a conservatory or skylight is installed.
In short, having the right Aluminum glass installed by experts like us will make any property more desirable. If you want your home to be the envy of your neighbors, look no further.

Increase the value of your home
An efficient Aluminum glass roof can provide you with additional living space, provided the project meets the appropriate building regulations. By providing you with an outdoor space protected from the elements, a glass roof will add value to your property.
Of course, it’s not just about sales: being able to sit outside and enjoy your garden in the evening without worrying about the cold – or the rain – is a wonderful thing, and many people in Abu Dhabi are already taking advantage of it.

Solar control glass
As standard, we have installed solar-powered Glass on all roofs, which has a self-cleaning coating that helps keep the Glass clean and free of dirt and watermarks. By installing double glazing, controlled by the sun, heat transfer (solar gain) through the Glass can be reduced, preventing the rooms below from being too hot in summer (considering UAE weather conditions) and too cold in winter.
Goerres has designed these fixed-glazed roofs, which can be constructed at any size and geometry, from simple rectangular to pyramidoid or polygonal forms. For the roof’s construction, transverse aluminum beams are used, which accommodate single and double-tempered glazing, forming an entirely watertight system.

Using durable materials (aluminum and Glass), the roof is guaranteed to stand the test of time while maximizing the glazing’s surface, offering an unobstructed view and protection under the most challenging conditions.

Bespoke designs for an increased Natural Light
This benefit should come as no surprise to anyone, but that doesn’t mean it’s underrated! Installing a glass roof or skylight can significantly increase the natural light to flood your property.
What are the practical benefits of this? Well, there are many:
·      Natural light has been proven to improve overall well-being and improve well-being
·      Natural light can be a great way to highlight interior design, accent colors, and add a positive vibe to a room.
·      Natural light can save you a lot of money, especially on dark winter days: You don’t have to reach for the light switch!

Get rid of the noise.
Aluminum glass roofs are generally considered modern architecture. Glass can help reduce external noise. As with thicker Glass, air gaps (the spaces between the Glass) help minimize sound. This roof system can provide homeowners and businesses with increased natural light, robust thermal performance, noise reduction, design flexibility, and increased home value.
Hence, aluminum glass roofs are becoming common all over the Emirates, especially in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Ajman, Fujairah, Ras Cayman, and Sharjah.

Good Thermal Performance
When you work with an experienced team of professionals like Goerres, the Glass you install can improve the thermal performance of your home.
The properties of Glass with excellent thermal values ​​help your home to maintain a comfortable level of insulation throughout the year. A glass roof or solar energy has been proven to help save money on your home over time: As well as saving electricity, the increased insulation means you will have to turn on the heating less during the year’s colder months. For larger households in Sharjah, usually those with big winter bills, this can save a considerable amount of money over time.
