Official lantern roof product
The Atlas lantern has been picked as the official lantern roof product for the Master Fitter Challenge, which will take place at the FIT Show.
This is the first time that a roof lantern has ever been chosen for the contest, in which a shortlist of six skilled installers will go head to head to show off their glazed product installation skills in a live final.
With glazed roof lanterns rapidly gaining market share, the FIT Show team wanted to extend the scope of the competition to include fitting a roof lantern. They were impressed with the high end, contemporary look of the Atlas Contemporary Lantern as well as its reputation for being a fitter-friendly product, and chose it to crown each of the ‘pods’ that the finalists will work on during the challenge.
Paul Godwin, managing director at the FIT Show, SAID: “With its clean lines and modern looks, the four-pane Atlas lantern was a natural choice to become the first lantern ever to feature in the challenge.
“It’s also important to select fenestration products that develop and test the skills of the finalists so we’re really excited to bring this new category in to the competition. The Atlas roof is known for being easy to install and we’ll be interested to hear first-hand from the finalists about their experience of fitting it whilst under pressure.”
A shortlist of six skilled installers will compete against each other to install a range of glazing products, including the Atlas lantern, on their own 3m x 3m pod during the live finals at the FIT Show. The finalists will be judged on the quality and attention to detail of every element of their installation, together with a strong emphasis on safety.
The total prize money for the contest is £10,000 and the lucky winner will scoop the grand prize of £5,000.
