What is a Conservation Rooflight?

A Conservation rooflight® for pitched roofs is traditionally designed to replicate the original Victorian cast-iron skylight.  With special characteristics, it has become a popular choice amongst architects; contractors and homeowners for installation into properties situated within Conservation Areas and Listed Buildings.
