Aluminium and uPVC specialists Framex prides itself on offering customers some of the highest quality products in the market. So when a homeowner came to them asking for three bespoke rooflights, Framex chose safety glass specialists TuffX to fulfil the brief.
The rooflights were required for a ground-floor residential extension in Rossendale, with the customer requesting blue-tinted solar glass to maximise the light, comfort and ambient feel of the space by reducing both glare and heat from the sun.
“We are seeing more and more customers requesting these flat rooflights to zone up the open plan living spaces within their properties, by introducing floods of natural light,” said Framex Director, Tim Mooney, “We are very happy using TuffX’s Infinity rooflight products; they are always easy to install.”
TuffX’s Infinity fixed flat rooflights are available in clear, blue and privacy glass finish options, in five standard sizes as well as bespoke measurements. Three rooflights of a standard size, 1000 x 1500 mm, were chosen with the blue glass option. The delicate blue tint provides 62% solar heat reflection to protect from the sun’s solar rays and 51% light transmission to reduce the sun’s glare, ensuring indoor spaces are bright, welcoming and full of natural daylight.
Framed in contemporary anthracite grey powder-coated aluminium, TuffX Infinity rooflights are available as either double or triple-glazed, which has an insulating u-value of 0.7 w/m2 – 30% better than rooflights with standard double glazing.
“Infinity rooflights look as great as they function, are easy to drop into place and are delivered direct to site – making them extremely popular with homeowners and installers alike,” said TuffX’s Managing Director Graham Price.
“With a range of standard sizes available, as well as the option for custom sizes, with double or triple glazing and the choice of a variety of glass finishes, by choosing Infinity rooflights you can be confident you are offering your customers the best way to achieve exactly the results they are after.”
