ROOFLIGHTS - Better quality of light: better quality of life.

NARM is an active trade association representing UK rooflight suppliers and associated businesses. We are dedicated to the application of best practice in the provision of natural light in built environments.

Founded in 1998 and this year celebrating our 20th Anniversary, NARM today comprises most of the UK’s leading rooflight businesses. Our membership covers all types of rooflighting products, from polycarbonate domes and barrel vaults, to GRP factory rooflights and structural glass skylights and atria.

The Association engenders co-operation between member companies, in order to develop and maintain standards and codes of practice – and to provide an authoritative information portal for rooflight specifiers.

Membership of NARM is conditional on compliance with the appropriate UK Building Regulations and Quality standards, so specifiers can be reassured rooflights from a NARM member company will be of a high quality and will comply with regulations for energy efficiency, non-fragility, fire performance and security where appropriate.

Our influential Technical Committee plays an active role in advising Government on future Building Regulations.

NARM is a member organisation of • NFRC - The National Federation of Roofing Contractors • CPA - The Construction Products Association • Eurolux, the European Group for Rooflights & Smoke Ventilation. We are a member of the RIBA CPD Provider Network.

As recently as the turn of the millenium, there was still a prevailing perception amongst architectural specifiers and other interested parties, that rooflights had a negative effect on the energy efficiency of buildings. This view was borne out of the fact that even the best insulating rooflights of the time generally offered lower thermal performance than surrounding roof areas.
