TuffX recently supplied the glass when Planet Roofing recently upgraded its new premises, including all the windows.

The new factory premises in Basildon, Essex, was completely refurbished this year, including new windows to the front and side to complement the building’s new black cladding.

TuffX’s Ambi Ultra glass was chosen for the windows on the south-facing aspect of the building. Ambi Ultra is a dark, self-cleaning, low-e solar tinted product which allows 8% light transmission while achieving 91% solar heat reflection and a U-value of 1.0W/m2K. In total, 100m2 were used in the refurbishment.

The factory, which had not been modernised in 30 years, was completed in August 2020.

“It’s turned us into something of a landmark in the area,” Paul Rickman of Planet Roofing said. “It has completely transformed the factory and the glass does the job we expected of it.

“We’ve had a great relationship with TuffX for many years. With TuffX we knew we’d get the right product with excellent customer service and efficient delivery.”

TuffX’s Managing Director Graham Price said: “We’ve worked with Planet Roofing for a long time, supplying glass for their rooflights, and were delighted to be chosen to help transform their new premises.”
