Climate change, globalisation and countless other local factors are continuing to drive huge change and innovation across the construction industry. This is particularly true in the UK’s rooflighting sector, where past and forthcoming revisions to Part L of the Building Regulations have an important
bearing on rooflight specification.
NARM, the National Association of Rooflight Manufacturers, offers an authoritative independent source for advice and support on compliance with Part L – as well as other standards covering Fire, Health & Safety and Product Quality.
NARM is a highly active and influential industry association, representing a complete cross-section of currently available rooflight technologies, including glass, thermoplastics and GRP profiled sheets.
The membership of NARM accounts for the majority of rooflights manufactured in the UK, as well as high quality imports mainly from Europe.
Established over thirty years ago, NARM is a member of CPA, the Construction Products Association and represents the rooflight industry in consultation with the Government and its subcontractors, CIBSE, AECOM and the BRE, on issues relating to Part L. NARM plays a key role in providing information to ensure that legislation is based on best practice.
NARM is also represented on relevant BSI committees for all rooflight product standards and through this position the association also represents the UK industry with reference to European standards.
NARM commissions and publishes independent research into rooflight-related issues, via authoritative sources including De Montfort University and Oxford Brookes University. Our research findings are available free of charge to specifiers, on NARM’s comprehensive website at www.narm.org.uk. The website also contains a mine of detailed information for specifiers, plus profiles on all member companies.
NARM is a founder member of ACR, the Advisory Committee for Roofsafety and has played a major role in working with ACR and the HSE in interpreting and clarifying Health & Safety regulations.
NARM has also published a RIBA approved on-line CPD Seminar entitled ‘An introduction to daylighting with rooflights’. BOOK NOW.
