The impact of well-designed products

As the Atlas Installation of the Month competition comes to the end of its third year, the latest round of winners has raised the bar with some incredible designs, the company has reported.

The competition has attracted hundreds of entries this year as Atlas installers jockey for their chance to win the prized Installation of the Year title – there is just one winning place left this year.

Gareth Thomas, sales director at Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, said: “This competition has had another amazing year and the judging panel has been bowled over by more astonishing installations than ever before. The standard of the Atlas installations is getting better and better and our latest winners have set the bar very high indeed. There is still time to send in an Atlas showstopper though and we can’t wait to see who will win the very last place of the year. It’s going to be an exciting race to the final!”

The latest trio of Installation of the Month winners are Monmouthshire Conservatory Company, Village Conservatories and Hybrid Windows. All three companies are first-time winners of the award.

Monmouthshire Conservatory Company pulled out all the stops with an orangery that took the place of an ageing timber conservatory.

Chris Atwell, Monmouthshire Conservatory Company’s owner, said: “We considered every single detail in this installation and knew that the lantern and bifolding doors would be dominant features, so they had to be perfect. We use Atlas because we know it’s what homeowners want and, when this customer visited our showroom, they loved the look of the Atlas product.”

Hybrid Windows created an impressive space in a Cheltenham family home that can now be used all year round. The installation, which incorporates floor to ceiling glazing and two Atlas lanterns, replaced an old-fashioned conservatory.

Leonard Roberts, managing director of Hybrid Windows, said: “The owners needed an energy efficient space, but they are also extremely design-conscious and would not compromise on style. The Atlas roof was the only product that could meet their high expectations and the end result is an absolute triumph.”

Village Conservatories caught the judges’ eyes with a striking L-shaped orangery that combines aluminium, reclaimed brick, glass and two large Atlas lanterns to bring contemporary style to a traditional home.

Colin Dicker, owner of Village Conservatories, said: “We are really proud of this project ¬– it shows off how beautifully an ultra-modern aluminium lantern can sit against rustic brickwork and really bring a property to life. The two Atlas lanterns look amazing, but they also deliver superb thermal performance so the space can be used throughout the year.”
