Ikon launches Kitemarked rooflights in reseller market first

A new brand from Sunsquare, Ikon Rooflights, has brought BSI-Kitemarked rooflights to the merchant market for the first time. With two pioneering flat-roof skylight designs, the new range offers verified quality and unbeatable margins, with prices starting from just £445.

Available exclusively for distributors, the new Ikon rooflights boast unrivalled design, thermal performance and safety credentials, with competitive pricing that allows merchants to benefit from unmatched profit margins. They are also the only skylights that hold the BSI (British Standards Institution) Kitemark.

Mark Lambert, Sales Director at Ikon Rooflights says: “For a long time, prohibitively high pricing has made Kitemarked rooflights completely inaccessible for the merchant market. This has left distributors having to compromise, unable to offer top-quality products at a margin that makes commercial sense. We’ve developed Ikon to change all this.

“Both the new Ikon Air and Ikon Pureview are built to the highest quality, efficiency and security standards, each holding a BSI Kitemark – and all at an extremely affordable price point. For the first time, this gives builders’ merchants and other windows and glazing distributors the opportunity to meet rising demand for quality, with a product that really competes on price.”

The launch brings to market two new product models. The ikon Air is a stylish, electronically opening rooflight that provides fresh air at the touch of a button. The robust, fixed Ikon Pureview offers a clear sightline and frameless look. They are quick and easy to install, and both models are available as stock in eleven sizes, with delivery within just seven working days.

Lambert continues: “Unlike most other brands, Ikon offers the electronically opening Air model as stock, providing resellers with an excellent upsell opportunity when selling standard fixed rooflights. The team behind Ikon has more than 15 years’ experience specialising in flat-roof skylights, so we know how important benefits like these are for distributors. Our pricing is another part of this, allowing resellers to secure the margins they need. What’s more, knowing all Ikon products are regularly, independently tested to destruction and backed by a 10-year warranty, they can have complete peace of mind too.”

Ikon rooflights feature laminated glass as standard: the safest, most reliable option on the market. They are also the only skylights that hold a BSI Kitemark for the whole product (not just the glass). Even electronic components are CE marked by the BSI. Fully thermally broken, Ikon rooflights have unparalleled U-values – incorporating polyamide thermal breaks to conductivity that provide an effective barrier between internal and external temperatures and guard against cold bridging and condensation.

Upon signing up as a distributor for the new range, Ikon’s merchant partners will be assigned their own customer relationship manager who will provide start-t0-finish support (from stock requirements through to marketing). They will be given access to a password-protected portal – www.ikonrooflights.co.uk – where they can place orders, pay, check statements and track order deliveries, as well as sales leads for further profit opportunities.
