Raising the roof

The three latest Atlas ‘Installation of the Month’ competition winners are: QKS Home Improvements; Thames Valley Windows; and John Knight Glass.

Lincolnshire-based QKS Home Improvements scooped the Installation of the Month title for two Atlas Flat Rooflight installations: a modern extension for a property in Stamford, which was topped with two different sized Atlas rooflights; and a marriage of aluminium, glass and two Flat Rooflights to create a space that’s a far cry from the PVCU conservatory it replaced.

Nick Clipston, owner of QKS, said: “The spaces were designed to allow just the right amount of light in and the Atlas Flat Rooflight was the only product that could deliver the modern, clean and uncluttered look that both homeowners wanted – simple, but so effective.”

Thames Valley Windows won with a quadruple Atlas roof lantern installation on a £7 million mansion in Surrey. Thames Valley worked with the architect and the developer to design and specify each of the four lanterns to add to the sophisticated character of the new build property; the Atlas lantern stands high above the grand hall.

Carly Butler, marketing manager at Thames Valley Windows, said: “This is an amazing installation that demanded the very best products to create a real sense of luxury and grandeur.”

John Knight Glass showed that the Atlas lantern is equally at home on a period or contemporary property with its winning installation on a 300-year old cottage in Parkgate on the Wirral. The Merseyside-based installer impressed the judges with a sympathetic Atlas lantern installation that was all about bringing light into a traditional-styled kitchen extension.

Greg Knight, general manager at John Knight Glass, said: “The key here was to draw as much light into the extension as possible and the Atlas lantern was the perfect choice to achieve this without overwhelming the period architecture of the building.”
