Glass processing specialist TuffX has launched a new aluminium framed rooflight, designed to offer installers a high quality, easy-to-fit solution for homeowners looking to increase the flow of natural light in to their home.Developed in-house, the contemporary TuffX design allows the rooflight – available in anthracite grey as standard – to be supplied directly to installers as a complete assembled unit, which can then be simply dropped into place and secured.
Manufactured in either 6mm Triple Glazed Thermal Toughened Safety Glass with a U-Value of 0.7 w/m2, or 6mm Double Glazed Glass with a U-Value of 1.2 w/m2, the external panes of each unit also receive a screen-printed boarder. This process ensures any joins and sealant are properly concealed before the panes are securely assembled into an aluminium frame, creating a product that is then ready for installation ‘out of the box’.
Graham Price, managing director of TuffX, commented: “The demand for premium products – fuelled by aspirational TV programmes such as Grand Designs – is greater than ever before, so the introduction of our new aluminium framed rooflight represents a fantastic opportunity for installers to add an attractive, high value and hassle-free addition to their portfolio.
“As well as boasting superior quality and aesthetics, our rooflights also benefit from low-maintenance and provide excellent thermal insulation and light transmission,” continued Graham. “In addition, thanks to our state-of-the-art glass processing facilities and the flexibility and control we have over our glass production, we are able to produce our rooflights in bespoke sizes at no additional cost to our customers.”
With a range of glass finishes available – including clear, opaque and solar – TuffX can deliver the new rooflights nationwide from its Merseyside facility, directly to site and with an impressive seven-day lead time.
