AdeLight Chosen for Bunscoil Chríost Rí School

Client: SOPREMA Ireland

Location: Cork, Ireland


Bunscoil Chríost Rí School is a co-educational premises formed by the amalgamation of Scoil Chríost Rí Boys’ and Christ the King Girls’ schools in the southern suburbs of the city of Cork in Ireland. The school’s flat roof required a major refurbishment to upgrade systems and ensure long term performance. It was also important that the design of the roof encompassed rooflights that would create bright and comfortable learning environments for students. Adexsi UK supported SOPREMA Ireland who worked with main contractor Vision Contracting and roofing contractor Kilkenny Asphalt to explore the best solutions.

Working with SOPREMA Ireland, Adexsi UK supplied 24 German Design Award (2018) winning AdeLight triple layered clear polycarbonate domes. In addition to providing excellent natural daylight diffusion, the AdeLight skylights are specially designed with a thermally broken multi-chamber system which prevents condensation, enhances energy efficiency and improves soundproofing. Moreover, they are highly secure.

Intended especially for flat roofs with a waterproof membrane, the AdeLight sky lights were installed with a SOPREMA bitumen felt system and a SOPREMA SOPRASAFE fall arrest cable system on the 1,800 m2 roof area.


On completion of the roof refurbishment, the new AdeLight systems are having a positive impact on students and staff at Bunscoil Chríost Rí School. The refurbishment has futureproofed the roof space through specialist design consideration. The convex shape of the AdeLight sky lights has a self-cleaning effect which will ensure optimum light diffusion over the lifetime of the units and require minimum maintenance. Through modular design, the Adexsi AdeLight sky lights can be easily and cost effectively retrofitted with a manual or electric opening system in a matter of minutes should the school decide they need additional ventilation. Adexsi’s manufacturing facilities are TUV certified for safety and all products CE certified and produced to EN standards.
