Toughened glass specialist, TuffX, has expanded its rooflight range, with the addition of a new aluminium framed walk-on version that offers homeowners a stylish and innovative solution to dark basements or roof terrace areas by allowing natural light to flow into the rooms below.

Developed in-house by TuffX, a market leader in specialist safety glass, the walk-on rooflight features toughened, laminated glass, a thermally broken powder coated aluminium frame with a sleek, black decorative border and can be supplied as a complete finished unit, ready to be dropped into place and secured.

Manufactured in 6mm double glazed glass, the TuffX walk-on rooflight is suitable for both internal and external installations and features warm edge spacer bar and Argon filled units that combine to offer ‘U’ values as low as 1.2 w/m2. The product is supplied fully glazed and is available in clear, privacy and anti-slip glass.

TuffX Managing Director, Graham Price, commented: “Premium products – especially those manufactured in aluminium – are more popular than ever, so we’ve worked hard to design a walk-on rooflight that is an attractive proposition for homeowners who are looking for an elegant and highly effective addition to their property. And while some aluminium products can be fiddly and time consuming to fit, which can be a pain for installers, we were determined to ensure that our walk-on rooflight was an easy sell to our customers as well.

“As such, we’re offering the walk-on rooflight to installers as a simple, easy-to-fit product that can be delivered directly to site, anywhere in the UK. As with other products in our range, our state-of-the-art facility gives us the flexibility to produce our new walk-on rooflight in bespoke sizes and at no additional cost to our customers.”

The aluminium framed walk-on rooflight is available now to trade customers on a three to four-day lead time on standard sizes and can be delivered nationwide from TuffX’s Merseyside facility.
