About Us

Tony Sandell Roof Windows (TSRW), established in 1988, is one of the largest manufacturers of roof windows and skylights in South Africa with over 40 000 windows fitted nationwide.

TSRW manufactures and installs:

  • Roof windows
  • Skylights
  • Domes
  • Bespoke roof windows and skylights

TSRW, South Africa’s sole manufacturer of centre pivot Roof Windows, has 22 years experience in Roof Window manufacture and installation.  TSRW owns a patent on the hinge mechanism and has developed products which are designed to withstand South Africa’s harsh conditions.

Previously marketed as SOLIS, TSRW is known to most South African architects who have supported and specified our product over the past two decades.

With the recent upsurge in Green Building practices, TSRW finds itself in an envious position to be a leader in servicing the residential market.  By specifying roof windows the architect is introducing natural light into an otherwise dark area, thus saving on electricity as well as allowing extra ventilation when needed.

There is a strong trend in South Africa towards loft conversions.  Roof windows are uniquely suited to such loft areas as they provide all the advantages in one – light, ventilation, view and cost efficiency.

At TSRW our hand crafted sub frames are solid hardwood for increased durability, and finished in natural varnish or white.  The exterior frames are clad in corrosion and fade resistant charcoal aluminium (PVF2 Coated), which together with the flashing kits are all roll formed and pressed.  All joints are double seamed to insure a completely waterproof seal.  Screws and hinges are stainless steel.

A wide range of standard sizes is available, with specials made to order.  In addition to specific mechanical aluminium flashing systems for slate, roof sheets and tiles, TSRW offer special flashings for flat and low-pitched roofs, as well as thatch. 
Our nationwide team of agents can supply and fit roof windows in all major centres and beyond.  TSRW offers a world-class product manufactured right here in South Africa.  Our 2700m2 premises in Ottery, Cape Town, boasts the finest purpose built roof window and skylight machinery in South Africa.

Products and Services

All products have undergone rigorous testing to ensure that they are able to withstand South Africa’s harsh environmental conditions.

Unlike other comparative products, all sub frames are made from solid hardwood for increased durability as soft woods tend to rot owing to South Africa’s extreme conditions.

Glazing options include Anti Sun Glass, PVB Laminates and Low E Double Glazing. Custom fit requirements can also be accommodated on request.

Supply and fit by our either ourselves or approved installers is offered in most major centers throughout South Africa.
