English term or phrase: roof light
Roof light and conservatory blinds are designed to suit sloping windows without sagging and can reduce glare and heat build-up considerably.

What is a "roof light" a light that goes on the roof? or a skylight? any British colleages out there?

Explanation:
Es la ventana típica de una buhardilla, que deja pasar la luz... a través del techo. El equivalente americano es "skylight".

El diccionario de terminología de la iluminación http://lightingwiki.com/RoofLight aconseja lo siguiente:

"An opening in a roof that allows light to enter the building. The US term for rooflight is SkyLight."

Explanation:
a 'roof-light' is like a skylight, i.e. a window allowing light to enter a room from above, rather than through a wall, although whilst a skylight is often flat (a glazed hole in a flat roof), a roof-light tends to be on a sloping part of the roof (like a Velux window).

Special types of (roller) blinds are available for these windows...

disagree  flaviofbg: Así se llama la luz, pero nos "roof light" se refiere a la ventana misma y no a la luz.
