Panoramic Group Launches New Floating Integral Blind System

 

Panoramic Group has launched its new Floating Integral Blind system, a highly innovative new product that allows users to manoeuvre the blinds from both the top and the bottom of the unit, providing a much more precise level of adjustment than any other offering on the market, at a much lower price point and with super-fast lead times.

Unique to the Panoramic Group, the new manually operated floating integral blinds may well be a more cost-effective option than other integral blind systems on the market, but that is not at the expense of quality claims the company.

Howells Launches New Glass Rafter Rooflight

 

Howells Patent Glazing is pleased to announce the launch of its new glass rafter rooflight, Ultraline which was unveiled at FIT Show 2019. Designed to maximise daylight, Ultraline allows for larger expanses of glass. Each joint is supported by a glass rafter, or fin, which reinforces the structure without breaking the sightline.

The low-pitch aluminium rooflight is non-intrusive and typically measures 2.4 metres long and 1.2 metres wide, ideal for the average house extension, at around three to four metres. However, as each rooflight is designed and made to order, customers can increase the width and depth to suit the application. Loadings are calculated by an independent glass consultant.
