Long summer nights are coming and for one homeowner in Coleraine, Northern Ireland, this posed the question: how best to enjoy the garden as the sun goes down? Hampton Conservatories had the answer, and called leading glass specialists TuffX to help them achieve it.
An eight-pane timber glazed conservatory with bifold doors and roof lantern provided the customer with the perfect space to entertain and enjoy whatever the temperamental summer weather the country’s north coast might bring. Finished in brilliant white, the new room made a perfect addition to the house, matching the elegant sense of grandeur that the large, detached property and gardens enjoy.
Orangery and conservatory specialist Hampton Conservatories have been a TuffX customer for two years, after initially being impressed by TuffX’s reliably good lead times. Twenty-six Ambience glass units were ordered to complete the roof lantern. These units used a combination of 4mm clear, low E toughened glass panes and 4mm self-cleaning clear toughened glass which remains cleaner for longer with optimum clarity, keeping maintenance to a minimum for the owner.
Hampton Conservatories’ managing director, Mervyn Montgomery said: “The customer was after an indoor-outdoor feel with lots of light, extending the property out into the generous garden to better enjoy summer evenings. A roof lantern gives the room additional height and light, and TuffX’s Ambience roof glass guarantees high performance in terms of temperature control, durability, maintenance and aesthetics.”
The new room is already proving popular as Hampton Conservatories have received enquiries from the client’s friends, who have been able to see for themselves what a light, airy yet temperate addition to a home a conservatory topped with TuffX’s Ambience roof glass can offer.
