Tony Sandell Roof Windows (TSRW), a Cape Town-based manufacturer of roof windows and skylights, positions itself as a proudly South African company with all components being manufactured locally at their Ottery factory

All our frames are made from quality components,
from the hardwood timber frames to the roll formed
aluminium cladding and stainless-steel hinges
and fixings. These units have stood the test of time
and have been built to withstand the Cape’s harsh
climate,’ says the company’s marketing and sales
executive, Jake Vlug.

Previously marketed as SOLIS, the TSRW brand
has been known to most South African architects
and other specifiers over the past two decades.
The company is an affiliated member of the South
African Skylight Association (SASA) under the AAAMSA

‘The recent upsurge in green building practices and
loft conversion trends has placed the company in the
fortunate position of being in the forefront of servicing
the residential market,’ adds Vlug

Benefits of roof windows
By specifying roof windows, a designer or architect
may introduce natural light into an otherwise dark
area, thus avoiding the use of lighting and saving
on electricity. In addition, the windows allow for extra
ventilation when needed.
‘You will enjoy the ideal combination of lots of
daylight, fresh air and a clear view- creating the
perfect environment for your home or office. Who

the company has large range of standard sizes and
can also make up special units on request. ‘Visit our
website to access technical drawings available in
Revit & CAD,’ he says.

Aluminium flashings
Vlug tells To Build that the company supplies
mechanical aluminium flashings that have been
designed for almost every roof type to ensure a
watertight maintenance free installation
