Enjoying the sun safely

TuffX has supplied Herefordshire’s Atrium Conservatories with 12 high-quality conservatoryglass panels, specified for a local residential project built by the orangery and conservatory specialist.

Each measuring 10.12m2, Atrium installers fitted the panels to create a lantern effect roof above an African Sapele hardwood structure and, having established the building was south facing, worked with TuffX to ensure all panels were manufactured using Ambi Ultra glass.

Ambi Ultra offers 91% heat deflection and will ensure maximum solar protection even in the strongest sunlight. Finished with Teknosmicroporus paint, the conservatory includes arched detailing on each of the windows.

Atrium Conservatories’ managing director Bernard Rump said: “Conservatories are a popular choice for families who want to expand their homes and are often spaces frequented by pets or children. The glass TuffX provided is a market leader in solar heat reflection, with exceptional light transmission properties – just 8% – and isselfcleaning.”

Graham Price, managing director for TuffX, said: “The Ambience range offersa wide variety of tinted conservatory glass roof options to suit homeowners’ exact requirements and style preferences, each providing year-round comfort and a reduction in energy bills. When we work alongside companies like Atrium, we are giving customers the best possible combinations in aesthetic design, and practical solution.”
