Out of the blue

Framex recently chose TuffX to provide three bespoke rooflights, which were required for a ground-floor residential extension in Rossendale.

The customer specifically requested blue-tinted solar glass to maximise the light, comfort and ambient feel of the space by reducing both glare and heat from the sun.

“We are seeing more and more customers requesting these flat rooflights to zone up the open-plan living spaces within their properties, by introducing floods of natural light,” Framex director Tim Mooney said. “We are very happy using TuffX’s Infinity rooflight products; they are always easy to install.”

TuffX’s Infinity fixed flat rooflights are available in clear, blue and privacy glass finish options, in five standard sizes as well as bespoke measurements. Three rooflights of a standard size, 1,000mm x 1,500mm, were chosen with the blue glass option. The blue tint provides 62% solar heat reflection to protect from the sun’s solar rays and 51% light transmission to reduce the sun’s glare, ensuring indoor spaces are bright, welcoming and full of natural daylight.

Framed in anthracite grey powder-coated aluminium, TuffX Infinity rooflights are available as either double or triple-glazed, which has an insulating U-value of 0.7W/m2K – 30% better than rooflights with standard double glazing, TuffX said.

“Infinity rooflights look as great as they function, are easy to drop into place and are delivered direct to site – making them extremely popular with homeowners and installers alike,” TuffX’s managing director Graham Price said.
